My favorite music:

comments: For fear of growing stagnant, I'm finally revising this list! These are this year's and last year's new picks! 1001---cuz Mark knows how to dig!
My Morning Jacket
comments: They border the year before last but they're so damn good, they made it to the list. They're my religion!
God Speed You Black Emperor
comments: Another one from almost too long ago but who I also had to put down for the sheer awe of how they put me someplace else.
Pavement and Lungfish
comments: I'm back to you ole boys. I need to do my read up but seems this is evolution in the work.
Buju Banton
comments: Moves me too but truthfully, I've been music spare these last two years and am trying to get back on the train. Suggestions? What you folks listening to?

My favorite movies:

Dersou Ouzala
comments: One of my all time favorite Kurosawa films. Rewatched it not too long ago and not a bit of its beauty dampened or dated.
Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit
comments: A BBC production based on the book of the same title. I dig the Queers. My admiration for this story--and it's such a story--here.
comments: Another BBC production (I think?). There's this emotional rawness in this brief crime series that's very truthful.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
comments: Of course I've got a crush on Kate Winslet but here, also Jim Carrey. Sometimes I just love him. I've always loved her.
comments: Directed by Yimou Zang. More a painting than a movie with tribute to Rashomon (by Kurosawa).

My favorite authors:

The essential Haiku: Versions of Basho, Buson, and Issa, ed. by Hass
comments: This has been a bedside companion for two years now. I just finished Issa's entry about his dying father and man, oh man!
William McDonough and Micheal Braungart
comments: for Cradle to Cradle:Remaking the Way We Make Things and Paul Hawken's book, Natural Capitalism. I admit, I want to better the world.
Steven Johnson
comments: Emergence...cuz the bees and ants really can do things better.
From the 30's
comments: This book, Plow Man's Folly which I can't find anywhere and I forget the author but a read which was nothing but a delight as it all about the misfortunes and ignorance of man's less than better inventions.
Wendell Berry
comments: Who I still look to for hope.
