I love to read. I think Cormac McCarthy is brilliant, and adore
Alison Bechdel, Harper Lee and T.H. White. I'm all about
coming-of-age stories, so I'll pick up pretty much any YA/New Adult
title. I'm fond of Philip Pullman, Lev Grossman, Diana Wynne Jones,
Garth Nix, John Green, Clive Barker, and Kelly Link.
There are many favorites (especially old and foreign films).
Recently, some standouts have been Gravity, Before Midnight,
Fruitvale Station, Saving Mr. Banks, 12 Years a Slave, Blue
Jasmine, The Dallas Buyers Club, August: Osage County, Frozen, Her,
and Short Term 12.
Everything. Selections of what I currently watch: Game of Thrones,
The Good Wife, Archer, Parks and Rec, Elementary, Orange is the New
Black, Rectify, Orphan Black, and American Horror Story. If you
watch Miranda, you should probably message me. I also have an
abiding love of all things science fiction. Some favorites are Star
Trek, Farscape, Babylon 5, and Battlestar Galactica.
I'm a big fan of Florence+the Machine, Judy Garland, LP, Ella
Fitzgerald, Of Monsters and Men, Mumford and Sons, Laura Mvula,
Loreena McKennitt, Lorde, and Vienna Teng. I'm also a
violinist/fiddler, so I'm really into Celtic and Cape Breton music.
As far as classical composers go, I enjoy a lot of Bach and
Current song obsession: "Knocking on Heaven's Door" by Antony and
the Johnsons (covering Bob Dylan)
