On a serious note, I've always had a knack of getting along with a wide range of people from all walks of life. How I was raised and my background had a role in this, but this is one trait that people have pointed out as a consistent quality to my personality and social circles throughout my life.
Lastly, I like to think my moonwalk is somewhat respectable.
My bookshelf is crowded with the usuals: Murakami, Kundera, Ishiguro, Eggers, DFW, Rushdie, Roth, Klosterman, Capote, Foer, Kundera, Diaz, Chabon, and that one really trashy beach novel.
I absolutely love documentaries regardless of topic: the more obscure or random the better. A documentary on crosswords? Shut up and take my money!
I tend to prefer the smaller "artsy" films of the sort that play at Angelika or those of say Woody Allen (Absolutely love "Manhattan" and "Annie Hall"), but I also thoroughly enjoy the popcorn flicks.
I'm a PBS junkie (Frontline, Nova, Nature, Charlie Rose, etc). Antique Roadshow is my jam! I also enjoy my Sunny in Philadelphia, Modern Family, and The League.
Based on my mood my preferences range from hip hop to jazz. Specifically, I'm a fan of Wilco, Kanye, XX, Snoop (Lion?), Ryan Adams, Tribe Called Quest, Eels, John Mayer (Don't judge), and Frank Ocean.
In the meantime, I'm still waiting for Postal Service to stop being so freakin' lazy and release a new album.
I love going to art galleries, exhibit openings and museums (mainly for the opportunity to take a silly posed photo in front of an absurd art installation).
One of my favorite things about living in NYC is taking advantage of the vibrant and constantly changing food scene. I'm always craving the comfort food of places like Ippudo, Spotted Pig or KTown, but I really enjoy exploring the latest cuisine and food options this City has to offer. As long as the dish doesn't have cauliflower in it, I'm game for trying it.
Fine spirits and food
