13 Things Tony Won't Leave Home Without

1:  iPad

With 3G and lots of space for movies and downloaded rough cuts. I didn't know I needed one until I got one. But now I need my Angry Birds app for flight delays. Also iBooks.

2: iPhone

Same story. Apple may be evil, but there it is.

3: Laptop

A Mac. I finally gave in after years as a PC user.

4: Headphones

Good ones.

5: Sunglasses

Hopefully appropriate to the "look" of the show. In Boston, for instance, in keeping with the ‘70s Eddie Coyle theme, I went with some very sinister and frankly ugly Ray Ban tinted aviators.

6: Jeans

Comfortable jeans.

7: Clark Desert Boots

Great for airport security and really, really comfortable almost anywhere.

8: Hoodie

A super lightweight Patagonia down hoodie that bunches up really tiny into my carry-on. Great for a cold plane headed to a hot country.

9: DVDs

I have a few new ones and some old favorites I'm considering ripping off for the show. Right now I'm on a Nagisa Oshima, Takashi Miike jag.

10: A Fat Book

For that period on the plane when you are prohibited from using electronic devices. Reading Borges now.

11: Valium or Similar Substance

For long flights and for adjusting to new time zones.

12: Lomotil or Immodium

For obvious regular risks of the road.

13: Kwik Clot

'Cause you never know these days when arterial bleeding could be a problem.
