Finding myself talking about the books “How to Do Nothing” by Jenny Odell and “The Dawn of Everything” by David Graeber & David Wengrow all the time these days. Also the essays “The Anxiety of Influencers” by Barrett Swanson and more recently “What does it mean to get woman’d?” by Rayne Fisher-Quann.
Favorite Coen bros movie is No Country. I just really like coin tosses
Favorite Book: Heavy by Kiese Laymon. Changed me to my every cell. Also, Thrust by Lidia Yuknavitch. Dang, what a weird and wild and gorgeous novel. And Negative Space by Lilly Dancyger--such a tender, thoughtful, wise exploration of her relationship with her father who died far too young.
The band Barenaked Ladies.
The movie Stardust.
The Outlander series - books and tv show.
And once again Barenaked Ladies. Barenaked Ladies forever.
Also Flogging Molly. True delight is Irish punk.
