  • Paul Simon’s voice
  • low humidity

  • Beethoven’s odd-numbered symphonies
  • imagining the Chairman (from Iron Chef America) walking into a New York deli and saying “I would like… A  HAM SANDWICH!” and making the crazy face
  • Mozart’s Jupiter symphony
  • birds on my porch
  • counterpoint
  • snow
  • the majority of Return of the King
