My favorite music:

Lucinda Williams
comments: She's my hero. Well, one of two. (See below).
Concrete Blonde
comments: No, I'm not stuck in the 80's. I'm Still in Hollywood. Johnette Napolitano is my (other) hero. (See above.)
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
comments: I take my rock chicks dark and gloomy, thanks.

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:

Susan Orlean

Irvine Welsh
comments: If it's not Scottish, it's crap.
Mark Twain
comments: Dude, I've been to the cave!
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 June 3, 2018: Sorry, there was a problem when updating the site to SSL and posting was affected for most users (annoyingly, not the one I use to test things though). Email andrew@diaryland.com with any remaining bugs that stop you from posting. (No need to tell me about archiving problems, etc, I'm working on those).

More fixes soon.
