Mundus Vult Decipi

I know [my label], in any case: a double face, a charming Janus, and underneath, the house motto: “Be wary”.

-- Albert Camus

My favorite music:

Radiohead
comments: Especially The Bends and OK Computer. Favourite song = live version of "Like Spinning Plates".
Eminem
comments: Although now he's getting a little too involved in dissing Benzino and Ja Rule, etc.
White Stripes
comments: Just got Elephant. It's as good as they say it is.
The Rascals
comments: Listen to "It's a Beautiful Morning" on a beautiful morning. Perfect.

My favorite movies:

Playing By Heart
comments: Somehow this movie slipped under the radar, but its all-star cast and brilliantly interwoven stories of separate relationships with common threads is inspiring and heartening.
Groundhog Day
comments: What a freakin' classic. "Watch that last step, it's a doozy!" Hahaha.
Amelie
comments: Gosh, I'm so original, I know. But this movie was just so cute.
Fight Club
comments: What a twist there at the end! I immediately watched the whole movie again, which was a totally different experience once I knew...

My favorite authors:

F. Scott Fitzgerald
comments: Best coming-of-age book: This Side of Paradise; best summation-of-American-dream book: The Great Gatsby. Achingly beautiful writing.
Ernest Hemingway
comments: Can distill a character, an image, a moment down to its most perfect and succinct expression.
Wislawa Szymborska
comments: Contemporary Polish poet who's simple yet multivalent poems capture the heart of the human condition.
e. e. cummings
comments: He plays fast and loose with conventional rules of grammar, form and style. I know I don't grasp all his layers of meaning, but the poems speak to me nonetheless.
