Tubers

...wherein local TV connoisseurs intimate what keeps them on their couches.

  1. "Cash Cab" "It's a great trivia game show, and you get to see annoying New Yorkers lose tons of money. The premise is you get into this special cab and lights go off. For however long it takes to get to your destination, you get trivia questions. It's fun."
  2. "Monk" "It's about an O.C.D. detective in California played by Tony Shaloub-what's wrong with that?"
  3. "Oz" "It's about a maximum security prison and gang wars. It's got some really great celebrities, like that one guy from 'Ghostbusters' and that other guy who's on Lost. Then there's that guy who's on '30 Rock' who plays Tina Fey's boyfriend."

Bound Up

Currently reading: "Tropic of Cancer," by Henry Miller "I love Anais Nin, and I thought I'd get the male version of that type of writing and genre. He's very crude and pornographic. In all honesty, and I'm not afraid to admit, that's part of the reason I wanted to read some Henry Miller. I read 'Delta of Venus' by Anais Nin, which is extremely erotic but written from the perspective of a woman. It's fantastic. 'Tropic of Cancer' is from a very extreme male point of view. It's slightly misogynistic and a hard read...he's very dry. He's kind of an asshole."

One book everyone should read: "Watership Down" by Richard Adams "It covers all of the important topics: courage, love, sacrifice, death, life and fighting for what's important. And it's about bunnies."
