Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love film in many forms (former film student), I'm all over the
map here Kurosawa to Pauly Shore (no shame) you name it
Futurama, The Simpsons, Scrubs, Archer, Bob's Burgers, Silicon
Valley, True Detective, Game of Thrones though I'm waayyyy behind.
Just binged through all of Brisco County Junior and my inner child
has never been happier.
Music is my drug of choice. Classical, Folk, Hip Hop, Rock, Blues,
Jazz, Electronic, etc. Live performances of note (from the last few
years): Prince (everything you've heard is true), The Dead (I will
regret not going to Chicago for the rest of my life), Jack White,
Gesaffelstien (if that show were a nightclub I would be there every
week), St Paul & the Broken Bones, Alabama Shakes, Charles
Bradley, Delta Spirit, Paul McCartney, Beck, Sigur Ros (people were
crying), Tool, Arcade Fire (went in completely blind), Future
Islands, Blur, Queens of the Stone Age, Deltron 3030, NIN &
Soundgarden though it was at the Shoreline and their sound sucks so
bittersweet on that one, Deer Tick, Polica (that woman is
hypnotizing!), The English Beat, Todd Terje, Caribou, The Pixies,
Cake, Tom Petty (that punk ass writer at Rolling Stone can eat a
dick! The fact that you reviewed both TP and Macklemore means you
didn't stay for more than a third of the set before running off).
The Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Simian Mobile Disco. I
realize now that list seems decidedly mainstream ::shrugs:: guess
I'm not as cool as I thought. Oddly enough with all that being
said, at home I mainly listen to deep house variants (Dirtybird,
Swayzak) or classical piano (Chopin, Liszt) and on occasion I throw
in some Gypsy Kings or Chilean Folk music (panpipes make me want to
frolic through the forest).
Extremely excited for Outside Lands- Amon Tobin, Elton John, Black
Keys, D'Angelo, St Vincent, Odesza, Caribou... bummed that they put
Get Real against Elton
Food- Goat cheese & Fig Crostini, All things Breakfast but
especially Lox, Tom yum, any and all the curry this world has to
offer, Dim Sum, New Mexico Green Chile
Books- Non fiction mostly, it feels like brain food and that makes
me smile :). After awhile though I get burned out.
Current rotation: The Conquest of Happiness by Bertrand Russel, The
Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, Breakfast of Champions by Kurt
Vonnegut, Fantastic Voyage by Ray Kurzweil, and when things calm
down again I'll sink myself back int Zen and the art of motorcycle
Footnote: Part of why I struggle to pick one book is there are sooo
many I want to read! I didn't read much when I was younger so I
feel like I have to make up for lost time. Also I went through a
used bookstore binge phase and have more books than I know what to
do with. It's a gentle madness.
