1. If I could live in any movie or TV setting it would be any Bond movie (except with Roger Moore). And then, there’s Fellini. Need I explain? Cars. Women. Sunglasses. Toys.
2. My libation of choice is Beefeater and tonic with extra-extra lime for a pure, clear, simple, altered state without the pain of a hangover.
3. The most aesthetically pleasing place I've visited recently was San Miguel de Allende, Mexico—a colonial city, visually beautiful, with lots of personality and good food.
4. My can’t-live-without techie gadget is my Canon PowerShot S95. I don't leave home without it because it records things I may have forgotten or details I may have missed. A life without visuals is a life without inspirations.
5. The best book I’ve read lately is De Kooning: An American Master by Mark Stevens. Actually, I have been working on this book for three years and am still not finished. (There have been a few books in between.) It’s definitely the history of 20th-century art.
