For books I'm kind of all over the place. I like a lot of
contemporary English writers a lot like Rushdie, Ishiguro, and
Kureishi. I still love Harry Potter and that's never going to
change. A Song of Ice and Fire took over my life for a solid 8
months last year and it's killing me that I'm going to have to wait
several years to finish that series. Vonnegut is another one of my
favorite writers but I need to read a few more of his books to say
I've read most of them.
My taste in movies is more narrow. I love indie movies. I can't
really get into too many romantic comedies and I think action
movies are a waste of time. I enjoy a movie that stirs some kind of
emotional response because I still consider the medium an art form
and not just a way for studios to make money. Directors I enjoy:
Kubrik, Nolan, Aronofsky, Affleck (...seriously), Raimi, Favreou,
TV: Community, Parks and Rec, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, The Walking
Dead, Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones, The Newsroom... Most HBO
shows really. Aside from that, I'll watch a series on Netflix and
not really get too invested in it.
Music: I love indie and folk. I mostly listen to Pandora with bands
I love as the station and I love finding out about new bands that
will pop up.
Bands: Two Door Cinema Club, Mumford & Sons, Iron & Wine,
Bon Iver, Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles, Empire of the Sun,
Pinback, The National, Miike Snow, Radiohead, Local Natives,
Yeasayer, Arcade Fire, Gorillaz, Horse Feathers, Silversun Pickups,
Childish Gambino, Bombay Bicycle Club, At the Drive-In, Death from
Above 1979, so on and so forth.
