So I don't read as much these days as I once did, I think grad
school broke my brain, but prior to this occurence some of my
favorite authors in the more recent past were: T.C. Boyle, Salman
Rushdie, Irvine Welsh, Chuck Palahniuk, Jeanette Winterson; I also
use to be really into the whole suspense/mystery/murder/thriller
type novels by authors like Tess Gerritson, and Stephen
Some of my all time favorite books: Running with Scissors, Pillars
of the Earth (total shocker to me), Devil in the White City,
Wicked, the Imagica novels, Anil's Ghost, American Psycho...
So I tend to watch most my TV through netflix as I didn't have
cable or an antenna for many years and these are the ones that I
was always waiting for the next season to be available (some sadly
have no more...):
Grey's Anatomy, True Blood, Nurse Jackee, The United States of
Tara, The L Word, The Walking Dead, Weeds, Breaking Bad, Project
Runway, Vampire Diaries, Mad Men, Glee, Law & Order: SVU, the
Big C, Carnivale...
and I just started watching An American Horror Story, and I am
totally creeped out by it, but think I might love it?
Oh, I can't forget my all time favorite! Twin Peaks!
I usually can only think of those cult classics like Rocky Horror
Picture Show, Clockwork Orange, Heather's, Harold and Maude, Willy
Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Wizard of Oz... Donnie Darko, The
House of Yes, Welcome to the Doll House, Eternal Sunshine of the
Spotless Mind, Best in Show, The Evil Dead...
In general I like things on the darker side, film noir, foreign
horror films (Dario Argento), drama/suspense/thrillers, old school
horror films (Hellraisers, Original Texas Chainsaw), and dark
I don't tend to listen to much new stuff, I've always kind of
sucked at finding out new music and relied on my friends back in
the days of mixed tapes and CDs, though Pandora has come in handy
in introducing me to some new things now that all my friends are
grown up and don't make me CDs :(
I love the 80s! 90s alternative, hair bands, electronica, and yes I
do love me some classic rock...
my favorite bands/artists would include: Depeche Mode, Ladytron,
She Wants Revenge, the Pixies, Scissor Sisters, Goldfrapp, Peaches,
the Faint, Sleater Kinney (old school), The Knife, Erasure,
Blondie, Cadallaca, Berlin, Madonna (again old school)...
well I just love food, ethnic food, spicy food, savory food,
breakfast food, brunch food, entrees, side dishes, dessert...
and above all else, I love the special Singhalese dishes my mom
only makes for the holidays, mmm... cashew pea curry...
