My favorite music:

Lucinda Williams
comments: She's my hero. Well, one of two. (See below).
Concrete Blonde

Wilco
comments: ...though I do tend to be a pre-Bennett-departure purist
The Jayhawks
comments: As cool and comfortable as your favorite pair of jeans
PJ Harvey and pre-makeover Liz Phair

My favorite movies:

Stealing Beauty
comments: Liv T as a Big V. (Soundtrack rocks, too.)
Ghost World
comments: Does anyone know if the Amiee Mann song was inspired by the graphic novel that inspired this?
Beautiful Girls
comments: A slice-of-life story I can relate to. And no, not because of the title.
Almost Famous
comments: Cameron Crowe, I'd like to know; he is so cool, I feel like a fool.
Welcome to the Dollhouse
comments: Two words: weiner dog.

My favorite authors:

Mark Twain

Sarah Vowell
comments: inspires me to write.
Pam Houston
comments: Cowboys are my weakness, too. Well, not really, but it's fun to say.

update: Still fixing stuff as fast as I can!. As you may have noticed, Diaryland is being renovated, which is still in progress. Bugs are all being fixed. The new design should work on phones much better than the old one, and pages in the members area are being converted to the new look one by one, so they can be tested. Please email help@diaryland.com with any new problems, but things that are already bugs should be fixed soon!
