What have you read or seen over the past year (book, play, film, etc…) that moved or surprised you?

Mostly I just watch action films and read twitter feeds, but I watched the Sarah Polley movie “Stories We Tell” a couple weeks ago on Netflix and found that pretty moving.


What are you listening to right now?

 Peter Tosh – Equal Rights


Fats Domino


What’s the last great book you read?

Well, I’ve spent the past couple of months wrestling with The Grapes of Wrath. I’m a very, very slow reader, but The Grapes of Wrath has been totally worth it. But I have to step it up because a bunch of internet related books are coming out this fall that I want to read.


What’s one thing you’re a fan of that people might not expect? 

It’s embarrassing, but I’ve seen every episode of Bones. The TV show. I recognize that it’s pretty bad television, but by the time it got practically unwatchable, I was already invested in the characters. So I soldier on.



What’s your favorite comfort food?
