random stuff I like.

You happened into the Easter egg on my portfolio. Lucky you! You are rewarded with a list of random stuff that I like. Behold.


North Shore, Kauai

My favorite place on Earth. Where towering mountains and flowing jungle meet a white sand beach, and bathtub-warm water teems with sea turtles, tropical fish, and tourists from the Midwest. 



I've loved this PBS documentary series since I was a kid. I still rarely miss an episode, especially when it focuses on space. 


2001: A Space Odyssey

My favorite film and perhaps my favorite director (Kubrick). I *almost* even like the super-long ape scenes at the beginning. If you aren't convinced, go watch it at the Seattle Cinerama once and see if you change your mind. 

Kids' Art

Who doesn't like kids' art? Check out this snail my 6 year old made! 



One of my life goals was to make it to Venice. I was not disappointed when I made it there. What's not to love? Improbably elegant architecture in the middle of a lagoon, gracefully decaying into the sea.
