Thanks for Hadag Nahash, Maradnu -- I just listened to Yom Shishi! (and it's 5:30 Friday afternoon, which makes it especially good).

Favorite book genres: microhistory, science fiction (especially post-apocalyptic), and alternate history.
Favorite authors: E.B. White, Herman Melville, Ursula le Guin. And I have unbounded admiration for the poets/editors/compilers of the Iliad, Odyssey, and Torah/Pentateuch as we have them today.
Favorite musical genres and artists: country/western from the beginning through about 1965 or so; Dylan; OCMS.

Default Current book

Despite the fact that I'm almost atheistic, certainly agnostic in the sense that even the concept of god is almost indefinable by definition ...

I nonetheless am entranced by Marilynne Robinson, her book of essays What Are We Doing Here, and her novel Gilead.

She is very spiritual, and a superb student of history, science and about every area of human learning. I've simply flipped over her!

Lately I have been finding some brilliant short animated films online. My favorite is 21 minutes long, and brings Hemingway's novel The Old Man and the Sea to life. The animator is Aleksandr Petrov, who works in oil paints on glass, using brushes and his fingers. It is visually stunning. It was premiered in 1999, but only recently released in digital format.

Some of my favorite writers: Wendell Berry, Chris Hedges, Diane Ackerman, Louise Penny, Naomi Klein.

Music: Leonard Cohen, Gustavo Santaolalla, Paul Robeson, George Gershwin, some classical and operatic music, Gregorian chant, any music that makes me get up and dance, (Cuban salsa, Gipsy Kings, Riverdance, etc.).
