I teach. I play music. I build stuff.
I like growing things. Plants, mostly.
Thinking, Fast and Slow is what I am now rereading. It's very important.
I watch movies on MUBI. One of my recent favorites was La Loi, with Gina Lollobrigida and the trabucco. The trabucco was sexier than Lollobrigida. I like old movies.
I grew up with a lot of classical music but I like other stuff, too, like Grizzly Bear. The Portland band Dirty Martini. Talking Heads was a previous favorite. Lhasa de Sela. On the side of "serious music," my taste runs from Palestrina through Beethoven and Brahms, to Martinu, Poulenc, and Rautavaara. Lately I've been working a lot on Villa-Lobos (I play oboe) and he's sorta taken over my brain. And since my brain has been taken over by Villa-Lobos, I've necessarily gotten more interested in Bach.
I like food. Food is good. I especially like soups, and I'm pretty good at making them. I'm veggie-ish, but not real strict. I also love tea; Golden Monkey is a favorite.
