Interests Oh media. And lots of it too. I'm obsessed with Simpsons. But only the reruns. And totally into gadgets, but not because I think they're cool. I like buzzing beeping being connected. I just realize how little time I read -- now I'm reading every day. And cereal is back.
Favorite Movies Love and Death, Woody Allen.
Favorite Music Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell, Julia Fordham. See a trend? Also I'm kind of smacked on newish women like India.Arie and now, yes, Amy Winehouse, just for the goof vibe. Recently I've gotten hooked on a Paul Simon album "Surprise, " which is all Eno. I listen it appears to tons of Aimee Mann, Elvis (C), and Rufus Wainright but his sister Martha is awesome. Who is this guy Thompson I keep listening to?
Favorite Books Confederacy of Dunces, The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, Wuthering Heights, Maurice, You'll Never Eat Lunch In This Town Again, and of course, Me by Katherine Hepburn. I just reread Elements of Style. Where is all of that now....??
