Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: I tend towards comedies (Big Lebowski,
Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Naked Gun, Hot Fuzz). For serious stuff
I go for films on the dark side or with generous amounts of
mindfuckery (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Fargo, Dark
City). And of course, The Princess Bride (since I can quote just
about the entire movie)
Books: My kindle and I have a deep and abiding
relationship. Please don't try and come between us. Recently, I've
been on an evolutionary biology kick. I read quite a bit of classic
literature. Some of my favorites are The Magic Mountain, The Master
and Margarita, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Catch 22, Fathers
and Sons (I'll stop here before this list gets absurdly long)
Guilty pleasure: cheesy fantasy books. I was pumped when the Wheel
of Time series finally wrapped up last year.
Music: My tastes run pretty diverse. Some of my
favs in rock (Spoon, The National), hip hop (Outkast, Run the
Jewels), pop (Charli XCX, Chvrches), classical (Mahler, Prokofiev),
electronic (Tim Hecker, Burial), jazz (Mingus, Monk), New Zealand
based folk parody duos (Flight of the Concords). Right now The
albums from Freddie Gibbs/Madlib and The War on Drugs are
dominating my ears.
Food: everything... I usually hone in on the menu
item with the craziest sounding ingredients. If I skip over a dish
I haven't had before, I could be missing my new favorite food.
Can't take that risk.
TV: Breaking Bad, 30 Rock, Mad Men, Arrested
Development, Game of Thrones, Archer (aka same list as 90% of OKC)
