Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: It always takes me a while to find something I'm interested
in, but the ones I've read and enjoyed lately are "Women" by
Charles Bukowski and "Nausea" by Jean-Paul Sartre, although
"Nausea" took me a few tries, mainly because it's so cold and
bleak. I like a lot of philosophical stuff. Howard Bloom's books
are quite good. I just got into comics again also. Traditional
shit. X-Men, Batman, Superman. Plus The Walking Dead. I'm a little
bit of a nerd.
Movies: Whew, if I had to list them all, it would be tedious as
hell. But as far as directors go, Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie
Nights is one of my favs of all time, if not #1) Tarantino,
Scorsese, Spike Jonze, Wes Anderson, Guillermo Del Toro. Many more,
but that's just top of my head. I like a lot of older films as
well. Just got into Seijun Suzuki's stuff, and that's really cool.
Jean-Luc Godard (A Woman Is a Woman and Band of Outsiders are
pretty high on my list) Fellini and Hitchcock, of course.
Shows: Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, South Park,
Portlandia, Arrested Development, Archer, Rick and Morty, Cosmos,
MST3k. Anything Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsay.
Music: Circa Survive, Circa Survive and uh...oh yeah. Circa
Survive. In all seriousness, they've been my favorite band for
going on eight years now. I really love every genre though. And I
mean EVERY genre. From Motown to Death Metal and everything in
Food: Burritos, double bacon cheeseburgers, pizza, hot dogs,
shawarma, sushi, banh mi, pad thai. I'll really eat anything. It's
a mystery of science how I'm not fat. Good genes, I suppose.
