Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Watership Down, The Time Traveler's Wife, The
Neverending Story (NOT the movie!), The Black Company, Neil Gaiman,
Terry Pratchett, Haruki Murukami. Poets: Blake, Seuss, Nash,
Silverstein, Neruda, Williams, Whitman, Vonnegut and Vittoria
repetto. Nonfictions: Jane Liedloff, Jane Jacobs, Christopher
Alexander. The Importance of Being Earnest is my favorite play, and
my second favorite thing to read aloud after Anansi Boys. I
kind of want to be James Baldwin when I grow up.
Movies: Star Wars (originals), Amelie, The Muppet Movie,
Gladiator, Killer Condom, Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter, Shortbus,
Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Ink, Lilo and Stitch. I think Kevin
Smith is a douche but I laugh at every goddamn movie he's ever
made, possibly because I suspect my life is one of them. Tired of
TV: For a long time this was blank, but lately I've been
watching Supernatural, and have gotten my girls watching Buffy and
Angel. I live The IT Crowd, so I don't know if that counts.
Music: Too much to mention. I listen to "Black Messiah" on
loop right now, but I still throw in "Fight the Power". Create a
matrix of "Building a Mystery" and Alice Cooper's "Poison" and you
have a blueprint of my romantic sensibilities. Especially with a
sampling of La Valse d'Amelie.
Food: Like music, tastes are too wide to list. Ethnic is
good, spicy ethnic is better. I've discovered that I can throw
together an awesome mole from scratch just by grabbing stuff from
my kitchen shelves. I don't eat cephalopods because I suspect they
will one day rule the world.
