Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Watership Down, The Neverending Story (NOT the
movie!), The Black Company, Neil Gaiman (RIP), 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 everything he's made, possibly
because I suspect my life is one of his movies. Tired of zombies,
sad there are so few good dinosaur or werewolf movies (a good
dinosaur AND werewolf movie would make me so happy).
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 lived The IT Crowd (that's not a typo), so I don't know if
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.
