Stuff I read:
I read a lot of political history and social issue books these
days. I just finished The Ethical Slut and I'm working on Opening
Up, thanks to the several people here who have recommended
But obviously, just sticking to politics and the real world would
be incredibly boring, so some of my favorite fiction titles and
Most of the Forgotten Realms series by RA Salvatore
Ready Player One
A Clockwork Orange
The Harry Potter series
A Canticle For Leibowitz
World War Z
I have a bad habit of buying large numbers of books at Value
Village because of their damn "Buy 4, get the 5th free!" deal. So I
collect classics, tech manuals, whatever - but I've been trying to
refresh and expand my fantasy and scifi tastes more recently. Name
me an author! (I love homages to Lovecraft and classic
Stuff I listen to:
My taste in music defaults to, "What, at this moment, will do the
best job of keeping me awake at work until the caffeine kicks in
from the shitty office coffee?" I play hopskotch across all genres
and I can't vouch for the quality of my taste at all. I'm just as
likely to listen to Tchaikovsky as Ke$ha.
I default to classic rock/hair metal because Joan Jett is the
sexiest woman alive and probably will be even if she lives to be a
hundred. Also electronica/trance.
Other bands/performers important to my well-being:
Garfunkel and Oates
Five Iron Frenzy
I also listen to a lot of standup these days, thanks to Pandora.
John Mulaney is quickly becoming my next idol after Elizabeth
Warren. Also, I adore the hell out of Iliza
and Rebecca Corry.
Stuff I Watch:
Lot of sci-fi/fantasy stuff, mostly, and TED talks.
Rick and Morty
The Walking Dead
I watch The Daily Show, Last Week Tonight, and old episodes of The
Colbert Report religiously. I also have a tradition of watching
Colbert's White House Correspondents' Dinner speech
a semi-regular basis, because the shit-eating grin on W's face will
never get old.
I'm generally addicted to older Disney movies, because the
soundtrack for The Hunchback of Notre Dame is absolutely amazing
and never gets old. But I like pretty much any kind of movie if
it's done well (but I have a soft spot for zombie movies regardless
of quality). Most of my movies are sci-fi, action-drama, and Pixar.
Lord of the Rings marathon, anyone? Or a marathon of the MCU
movies, because Iron Man is my spirit animal.
Stuff I eat:
I eat basically everything that doesn't have olives or mushrooms in
it. Preferably pasta. You could bribe me with lasagna or Nutella,
and possibly even with Nutella-covered lasagna. I love the royal
hell out of BBQ anything, though.
Also, I love eggs but I don't know how to make them in any other
form except "scrambled." Please teach me.
