(a) I love all of Chuck Palahniuk and Poppy Z. Brite's stuff. I'm
also a big fan of William S. Burroughs. I like to listen to
audiobooks at night before bed because they're fun. I also really
love Christopher Moore. And I forgot Neil Gaiman. And I've got to
add The Night Circus and Ready Player One as well. Also The
Magician King is great.
(b) My favorite directors are Robert Rodriguez, Kevin Smith,
Quentin Tarantino, Joss Whedon and Richard Linklater. Some other
movies I like are Empire Records, Fight Club, Seven, Newsies (my
newsies hat is on my head everywhere I go), Ghostbusters, Tank
Girl, Love Me If You Dare, Wet Hot American Summer, Scott Pilgrim
vs The World, and way too many others to list. I love a lot of
movies. I'm a big fan of documentaries and horror movies above all
else. I'm a connoisseur of wonderfully bad movies as well.
(c) I like a lot of different stuff mainly on the rock side. Hole,
Pearl Jam and GNR are up there and my favorites are constantly in
flux. Some other bands I love are Sleater-Kinney, Bikini Kill,
Fiona Apple, The Gits, The Dresden Dolls, Bowie, Lou Reed, Patti
Smith, Ramones, X, Le Tigre, and Charlotte Martin. I have a deep
routed love of early 90's grunge and riot grrl along with classic
rock. I'm constantly scolding myself for not listening to enough
(d) I love to eat. I'll eat anything once, I'll also try anything
once. Kind of a motto of mine. But I also know what I don't like.
Also whiskey is food, right? I do really like meat and dislike
spicy things and most seafood.
Also some of my favorite TV of all time: Some of my favorite shows
of all time are Buffy The Vampire Slayer(I even have a Buffy
tattoo, meet me and I'll show it to you), Veronica Mars, The West
Wing, Arrested Development, Alias, Firefly, Wonderfalls, Upright
Citizens Brigade, Mr. Show, Community, The Wire, Happy Endings,
Psych, FNL, Portlandia, The early SNICK lineup (Are You Afraid of
the Dark?, Clarissa, Alex Mack, etc), The League, and a lot more.
All the good stuff winds up cancelled. I'm sad Lost is over.
Also listening to a ton of podcasts like You Had To Be There,
Nerdist, Indoor Kids, WTF, Doug Loves Movies, How Did This Get
Made?, Harmontown, and This Feels Terrible.
