I love cheese of almost all verities (swiss not so much), though I
have sadly been reducing my dairy consumption lately in an attempt
to improve my health. I now savor my cheesy trysts all the
I love to explore all kinds of food, and I've come to realize it
takes more than one try to appreciate the unusual.
I am a vegetarian, and love to eat healthy veggie meals, but I'm
not very good at keeping it up for long. I eat seafood to stay
healthy, but feel bad about the state of the world's fisheries.
Cold smoked salmon... can't get enough.
As a film major you can expect me to watch a lot of films. That
said I'm terrible at picking favorites, in fact I'm notorious for
spending hours among the shelves of any video store I happen to
fall into. I'm in a long term love affair with Netflix, I hope you
aren't the jealous type. I rarely watch the same film more than
once, I crave the new and unusual. If you don't like indie, artsy,
foreign, or just plain strange films our taste probably won't align
much. Blockbusters bore me, but I'll see one every once in a while.
Recently I watched 180 Degrees South, an amazing travel/adventure
documentary about a trip to Patagonia. My wanderlust has definitely
After a long time of watching little to no TV, Netflix has drawn me
back in. I loved Downton Abby and eagerly await the second season's
appearance on Watch Instantly. I've been dabbling in some classic
anime recently (Cowboy Bebop and Gundam Wing). Game of
I read all the time... but not usually books. I'm an avid internet
trawler: blogs, essays, and articles take up most of my reading
time. When I do get around to long form reading I like
science-fiction, magical realism, and politically charged academic
non-fiction. I have recently gotten into graphic fiction in a big
way, some hi-lights of my recent reading include Astorios Polyp,
Logicomix, Hicksville, Transmetropolitan, Battle Royale, and
I love science fiction, especially cyberpunk and anything William
Gibson. Most recently I have been reading Grand Central
I download occasional tracks from blogs I like, or songs I hear
around me that I take the time to pick up.
Taste: indie (ref. when that meant something), lyrical electronic,
intellectual rap, acoustic harmonies, mind-bending trance sets,
"anything but country and bubblegum pop," add a dash of Tuvan
throat singing when appropriate. I have been known to skank around
to both Ska and Reggae. My favorites of the moment are mostly what
I call the "intentional sound" electronic acts that incorporate
instrumental tracks: Govinda, Emancipator, Papdosio,
Phutureprimitive. Also "beats", "post-dubstep" (ughhh), or
"chillout" such as XXYYXX, Mount Kimbie, Gold Panda, and Tycho.
