List of Current Favorites, Preoccupations, Indulgences

Periodically in my journals I will sit down and write a list of the books I am reading, the music I am listening to...the things that are preoccupying me in a particular time and place in my life. Now that I am doing this sorta public journaling, I thought what the hell, I'll share one of these lists with y'all.
