Favorite Music Right now I am listening to, Margot and the Nuclear So and So's, Robyn Hitchcock, Ryan Adams, Elliott Smith, Damien Rice, Kath Bush, The Duhks, Kate Walsh, John Prine, REM, but I still love me an old 80's dance tune from, Love-n-Rockets, or, New Order, or, The Cure, or, Echo and the Bunnymen, or, The Stone Roses, or .......
Favorite Books My Antonia, Anna Karenina, Pride and Prejudice, anything by, Margaret Atwood, Toni Morrison, or, Tom Robbins, To the Lighthouse, Jane Eyre, Lolita, Dracula, Frankenstein, The Bell Jar, Bridge to Terabithia, all Newbery award winners, anything relatively classic I suppose, contemporary literature mostly bores me with too much plot
