About Me


Forming a scooter gang; name forthcoming!


The only New Year's resolution I've ever upheld was to watch all of Woody Allen's movies in a single year. It was a good year.


As David Byrne said in True Stories...

"I really enjoy forgetting. When I first come to a place, I notice all the little details. I notice the way the sky looks. The color of white paper. The way people walk. Doorknobs. Everything. Then I get used to the place and I don't notice those things anymore. So only by forgetting can I see the place again as it really is."


Movies! New experiences. Music, and culture, and interesting miscellany. The Manifesto Antropofago. Things which are combinations of other things, like in Montessori school. Glamour shots of other people's dogs. Good beer and better food.

Music, Movies & Books

The movie Local Hero has been kicking around my head for the last year or so. Davids are usually a good bet - Foster Wallace, Byrne, E. Sugar... I'm dreading the day when I've finished all of Murakami's books.
