“Not food, water, or shelter, but I’d hate to go without my EMK antiaging serum and my iPod, kindly programmed for me by my friend Tom Freston. I either go to shuffle and see what happens, which is how I got hooked on Alpha Blondy, or I replay one or two songs endlessly, like Neil Young’s ‘Someday’ and ‘Too Far Gone.’ And I’ve been doing yoga since I was in middle school in Greece; my mother got us into it—she could stand on her head. Though today I was reprimanded by my teacher for taking a call during practice.”
