Help your potential matches find common interests.
Ha, I paint in broad strokes. Hope you like lists!
Music: First and foremost, post-rock! Maserati, 65daysofstatic,
Godspeed You! Black Emperor, This Will Destroy You, Mogwai,
Explosions in the Sky, etc. Outside of post-rock, there's Xploding
Plastix, Mike Doughty and Soul Coughing, Massive Attack, almost
anything Chris Cornell* has ever done but especially Audioslave,
the Heavy, Guster, Fiona Apple, Bush, They Might Be Giants,
Jonathan Coulton, She, Portishead, and so on. Getting into Daft
Punk, Metric, Pentatonix, Nico Vega, and PPL MVR.
* That said, Scream is easily one of the most embarassing albums
I've ever forced myself to listen to.
Books: Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Mark
Danielewski, Warren Ellis, Alan Moore, Grant Morrison, Gail Simone,
Matt Fraction, Max Brooks, Chuck Palahniuk, Stephen King, Azuma
Kiyohiko; the list goes on. Greg Pak's proving to be of interest. I
want to get into Carl Sagan, Junot Diaz, and China Mieville at some
point. I want to read more Nabakov, but if Lolita was any
indication I will not necessarily enjoy the experience.
Movies: Back to the Future will always have a special place in my
heart! Otherwise, I enjoy stuff by Frank Darabont, the Coen
Brothers, David Cronenberg, Phil Lord & Christopher Miller, Wes
Anderson, Mel Brooks, Guy Ritchie, Christopher Nolan (dude needs to
tighten up his plots though, there was some goofy stuff in
Interstellar and his Batman flicks), David Fincher, Tim Burton,
Hayao Miyazaki, Luc Besson, Edgar Wright, Terry Gilliam....
Teevee: Leverage, Burn Notice, Rick & Morty, Star Trek: The
Next Generation, Game of Thrones, Scrubs, Futurama, Parks &
Rec, Arrested Development (not caught up with the new season yet!),
Twin Peaks (NEW SEASON YESSSS), Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
and any of Comedy Central's news entertainment... Also, you can put
Mike Rowe or Morgan Spurlock in anything and I will probably watch
Food: I've been eating rather spartan as of late, and usually have
lots of hard-boiled eggs in my fridge. Beyond that, I'm a sucker
for most things cheesy or minty, and my favored seasonings include
garlic salt and chili powder. Sweet potatoes, smoked salmon, pita
chips, unagi and tomago sushi, reaaaaally good paneer, and the list
Vidja Games: Psychonauts, the Silent Hill, Fallout and Mass Effect
series (I am the most compulsively paragon Shepard), System Shock
and its cousins, Katamari Damacy, Earthbound, The Stanley Parable,
and a number of things that involve ambulatory corpses that hunger
for my well-developed and incredibly delectable sweetbreads.
