You can find me on thesixtyone.com under the same name as here if
you'd like to listen to the kind of music I like. I pretty much
just go with the suggested tracks now. The "for you" tracks are
normally pretty good..
Oh and if you don't recognise any of the people I just listed and
you want to look up just one to get a general gist of what I like,
look up George Watsky's "Whoa Whoa Whoa". In fact, here's a link:
More of a pop song fan? Have a Bo Burnham link:
Favourite film is "Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel" at
the moment, although "Galaxy Quest" was pretty awesome!
These are just some of my favourites. With most things, if you
suggest something I'll probably go look it up and I'll probably
I'm going to rant about 50 Shades of Grey now. Feel free to skip
ahead to the next section.
Why am I ranting about 50SoG? Because someone put it in their
"favourite books" section. It's an overgrown piece of erotic fan
fiction! You shouldn't be proudly showing off that you've read it!
Don't get me wrong, I've got my own favourite pieces of erotic
fiction but I don't go claiming that they're worthy literary works
that broadened my mind! "But I read it for the love story!" People
read 50SoG for the love story in the same way guys read porn mags
for the articles. Yeah they'll read them, yeah they'll enjoy them,
but they bought it for the tits. "Oh but it helps us express sexual
independence" Because nothing says "Sexual independence" like an
utterly male dominated BDSM relationship. Stop claiming it's a good
book and just admit that you like feeling as though you were doing
something naughty by owning a copy.
OK, I'm done.
