Music, Movies, and Books

I'm really big on any kind of music with good lyrics and strong voices, and I love playing guitar and singing. I always love hearing new music, though, and I don't know very much about music, so I would love to hear what you like!

I love Russian lit and 20/21st century poetry, especially Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Wislawa Szymborska, Elizabeth Bishop and recently Kay Ryan. I also really like pop science. Ooh, baby. Don't give me the graphs and the data. Give me the -biographies- of the scientists. Yeah. No really, though, talk science to me.

Movies-wise: artsy movies, smart comedies, and thrillers that aren't too creepy. Imagine "When Harry Met Sally", but with high color saturation, long silences, and a heist.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once waded with the ducks in Lake Lucerne.
