Me and my old-school tastes: mostly Chris Botti, Cassandra Wilson, Faith, Ella Fitzgerald, Steely Dan/Donald Fagen, Dina Washington, Sarah Vaughn, Celia Cruz, Hector Lavoe, Tito Puente, Geri Allen, Joshua Redman, Wynton Marsalis, Buika, DJ Rekha, Chris Whitley, and Sting. Always, always Sting.
I'm a huge documentary fan, so I've been watching The Weather Underground, The Corporation, Yoga, Inc., Rudyland, and Big Rig. (Thanks, Hulu!) I also watch FlashForward, mostly to snark about it with the rest of the Racialicious Roundtable. And I watch it for John Cho.
Late pass for me, but I'm catching up with Van Jones' The Green Collar Economy. I just finished Barbara Ehrenreich's Bright-Sided: How the Relentless Promotion of Positive Thinking Has Undermined America. I'm currently struggling with Dostoyevsky's The Brothers Karamazov and Richard Bernstein's The East, the West, and Sex.
