Help your potential matches find common interests.
Here's the thing - I love talking about things I love, but I
honestly don't think it's all that important that a match or
whatever love all the things I love. Anyway. The lists:
Books: The Dog Stars, The People of Paper, The Children's Hospital,
Born to Run, City of Thieves, Kent Haruf fiction, some poetryish
things like Bluets, That This, Hotel Lobby at the End of the World,
Don't Let Me Be Lonely, Sir, Young Tambling
Music [caveat: this list is pretty old, probably dating back before
my ipod broke about 3 years ago]: Andrew Bird, Magnetic Fields,
Anne Murray (yes), Elvis Perkins & Deerland, Beirut, George
Strait, Gillian Welch, Lykke Li, Lake Street Dive, Phosphorescent.
I have an affinity for solid gold hits of the 70s. And I recently
discovered an classic country station on the am dial (yes, if it's
am radio, it's on the dial), and it's changed my life.
TV [I hope we're past the age of "I don't watch tv because I'm
ideologically against it." There is some great stuff out there. And
sometimes passive entertainment is necessary.]: New Girl,
Community, Parks and Rec, Brooklyn 99, Bob's Burgers, South Park,
Silicon Valley, Pete and Pete
Radio: Wait, Wait... Radiolab
Movies: Next Stop Wonderland, The Station Agent, The Big Lebowski,
O Brother Where Art Thou, The Future, Beasts of the Southern Wild
