Something Unique About Me: I have a log listing nearly all of the mixtapes and CDs that I've made for other people (and I made a lot!) from the late 90s to 2015.

If I wrote an autobiography, its title would be: What a joke...and other Social-Lite Adventures 

The last thing I read: The Lost Coast by Amy Rose Capetta

What I’m reading now: My Husband by Rumena Bužarovska (translated from the Macedonian by Paul Filev)
