Books - Mark Fucking Twain - probably the USA's greatest author
ever! Also, Vagabonding, Last Night a DJ Saved My Life, Cheese
Primer, Twain's Feast, Orson Scott Card, Tolkien, Bourdain. I have
always wanted to read H.P. Lovecraft, but for whatever reason that
hasn't happened yet. Once upon a time, I was really into Stephen
King and Dean Koontz, and read most books that they had written,
but that has passed.
Movies - I have grown increasingly bored with modern Hollywood
movies, and feel that they are cliche and uncreative. That has led
me to pursue foreign filmography in recent years. My preference is
for action or drama films, while comedy is rather hit or miss. Some
favorite films are : The Good the Bad the Weird, Slumdog
Millionaire, Outsourced, Batman Begins, Delicatessen. Mongol, Ong
Bak, Dead Snow, Defiance, Flame & Citron. Also, George Romero
is a bit of a hero to me.
Shows - Doctor Who, South Park, Archer, Jericho, Heroes, Alphas,
Bizarre Foods (yes, he's kind of rude and insensitive, but I still
love learning about unique culinary traditions around the world),
No Reservations, Layover, Heroes, Alphas, Game of Thrones,
Spartacus, Skins, Hell on Wheels, Supernatural.
Music - Electronic, swing, latin jazz, punk, ska, bollywood, did I
say ska? I fucking love ska. This is only a smattering.
Some of the more important artists/singers/producers/bands to me
are : David Bowie, Aphex Twin, Rancid, David Byrne, Talking Heads,
Clash, Joe Strummer, Louis Prima, Brian Eno, Ray Charles, George
Harrison, the Beatles, A.R. Rahman, the Specials, Mad Caddies,
Transplants, Hall & Oates, etc. This is a topic I can talk
about for not just hours, but days to be honest.
I am currently in the middle of an extremely nerdy music research
project, which I would love to talk to you about if you're
Food : Any and all, but especially cuisines that value having a
large variety at the table - Indian, Korean, Japanese, etc. As a
cook, I have an insanely open mind about eating.
Games : Munchkin, D&D (I have always preferred 3.5, but haven't
recently been exposed to Pathfinder as well), Dominion, Risk,
Fable, Elder Scrolls, Grand Theft Auto.
Maybe there should be a section here at the bottom for favorite
blogs? I might consider adding that, though probably nobody cares
if they're not a blogger.
