- Saia (Minx) and her beau (at least of old) J-Sol... she and I have chatted online for over a decade now, and his Recollections of the Rising Sun is the fave tech-trance mix... wish there was more like that in the clubs and warehouses).
- • Photographing and collecting photographs of department (or other) store mannequins, most of which suffer from congenital deformities: (see my "homepage," http://iheartmannequins.blogspot.com. Or go have a look yourself, take some photos of the funnier ones, and send 'em in to me. We aim to be your one-stop-deformed-mannequin-shop.
• Law. I know that seems like an odd addition, but I'm a law student, hoping to go into criminal law, so I often examine everyday scenarios to determine the criminal liability that might be imposed (and how best to avoid it). Makes me a shitty party-companion, but a lifesaver in a pinch.
- Non-Electronic tends to be indie and blues. I dig Film School a lot, and though you may think it makes me a poseur, I was into Vampire Weekend (not so much) and The Black Keys before they went mainstream. Like, just before they went mainstream, but such is my taste. Of course, there's Muddy, John Lee (Hooker), Skip James, you know, the usual. I listen to some more modern-type stuff, but after Clapton it all sounds derivative, and Clapton sounds like derivative Muddy. I also listen to The White Stripes (the later stuff) because a good, tight, raw garage rock sounds is delicious and well-done.
I... OK, I'm going to say this... I like Jimmy Eat World. A lot. And I can honestly say I liked them before everyone else: my best-friend's boyfriend dragged me to one of their shows in Minneapolis where the crowd was, like, 100 people, and this was right when Clarity was released, well before Bleed American. And although they've gotten their fair share of trite because of the "emo" label, they are the best post-punk harmonic powerhouse out there. Yeah, you heard me Kings of Leon: J.E.W. is better.
My day to day is usually some form ::hangs head:: of Prog House. It's formulaic, it's unnecessarily emotional, it's not dance music: it's background fare. It's a step up from Downtempo, but even Downtempo is more danceable.
When I want to throw a party and get the house bumpin', it's always straight up House though (that's what I used to spin mys
- Fight Club (I saw it in India off a boot-leg copy in the back of a tea-shop on the three medium-sized wooden benches for 40 people, and it was still bad-ass and brilliant.
Let the Right One In. The original Swedish, I should add; I saw the English-language version (Let Me In) and I thought it was a fair imitation - but an imitation none-the-less. I love early-puberty-related films - it was a traumatic time for me, having just moved to the U.S. from overseas where I was in an all-boys school. Girls are scary.
Oscar and Lucinda. It came out in the late 90s; it was a period piece, an in
- Small Gods, by Terry Pratchett, is hands-down my favorite book of all time. It's a lightly-comedic fantasy novel about a god who turns out to only have one true follower and ends up trapped in the body of a one-eyed tortoise. It's about religion and faith and reason and ethics - especially ethics, and how we don't know a thing about ourselves 'til we have our own.
al Qur'an al Majid (the Koran to you infidels). I speak only the barest hint of Arabic, but that's all you need to know of the language to understand there is something very special about this book. And (because I'm a law stud

- House, M.D. (get it?); Dexter; Judge Judy (oddly enough); The Ricky Gervais Show; So You Think You Can Dance (not religiously, but I spend a lot of time wishing I could do the things the B-Boys, Popper/Lockers, Krumpers and Freestylists do. Alas, age and infirmity...
