Ooh, this section. Okay.
I'm starting to get more into books, y'all. What I've
enjoyed so far includes Fear of Flying, The Bell Jar, Flowers for
Algernon, Play It As It Lays, The Color Purple, and No One Belongs
Here More Than You. And lots of academic lit on language, music,
gender, and sexuality. I devour that stuff whole. Especially if it
I seem to like pretty much anything feminist/queer-themed from the
60s-80s. Or anything where the protagonist ends up in an asylum.
Book recommendations are always appreciated!
(And I read a ridiculous amount of Uncle John's Bathroom Readers,
which accounts for my vast knowledge of historic ephemera.)
Heavenly Creatures, Rocky Horror Picture Show, The
Room (oh hai), Wayne's World, Lilo and Stitch, Mulan, It's a
Wonderful Life, Pulp Fiction, and pretty much anything
light-hearted and funny or cultish. The last movie I watched was
Female Trouble, which I enjoyed quite a bit.
Yes. Last.fm tells me I'm "into indie, rock, 80s,
pop, and new wave," which is pretty accurate. Indie pop is my
favourite genre, followed closely by new wave (especially
female-led new wave), and then anything with a strong pop
foundation. I could go on all day, but suffice it to say that I'm a
big music nerd and am predisposed to like any band that uses the
double-single handclap (clap-clap, clap!). My top 3 of all time are
Belle & Sebastian, the Cars, and Architecture in Helsinki.
Right now I'm getting into the Velvet Underground after realizing
just how much influence that band has over pretty much everything
I've ever been into.
I think it's probably best to link to my last.fm, actually.
I'm also always open to music suggestions! If there's a band you
think I need to get into, message me.
The only TV show I watch with any regularity is Archer.
And Dancing with the Stars when it's on. I'm like the anti-hipster
when it comes to TV.
Hummus, sweet potato fries, caramel corn, chicken,
bananas, peanut butter, veggies of all kinds. Oh, and I really like
garlic. I've even had garlic fudge before (verdict: surprisingly
