I love the movie "The Ninth Configuration", directed by William Peter Blatty and starring Stacy Keach. I love the art of Steve "The Dude" Rude. I love the novels of Jim Thompson, Thomas Pynchon, and Kathy Acker. I love the music of Boredoms, Boogie Down Productions, and the Archers of Loaf. I love "Mr. Show with Bob and David". I love the writings of Hannah Arendt, Roland Barthes, Bob Black, H.L. Mencken and Gore Vidal. I love my brown-and-red parka jacket. I love my cats. I love my friends, especially the ones who are in the occassional habit of writing to me, or going out drinking with me. I love drinking. I love sleeping, reading, and eating good food. I love a number of Chicago restaurants, especially Mirabell, Lo's, and Shiroi Hana. I love Chicago, and in particular I love Chicago's architecture, character and history. I love writing. I love "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City". I love Alan Moore comics, Martin Scorsese movies and Chicago White Sox baseball.
But most of all, dear reader, I love the living hell out of you.
