Books: I tend to like non-fiction and memoirs... I lean toward
things like David Sedaris and other upbeat, funny writing or books
where I can learn something in the process.
Movies: My favs include The Big Lebowski (and all the Cohen
Brothers movies for that matter), Young Frankenstein. Wes Anderson
movies. The Departed. Tarantino films. High Fidelity. I gravitate
toward documentaries when looking for something to watch on
MUSIC! Deer Tick, Dawes, Shakey Graves, White Denim, Bryan John
Appleby, Lonesome Shack, The Kinks, J. Roddy Walston and the
Business, Jason Isbell, Crushed Out, Clear Plastic Masks, Tame
Impala and anything classic rock up until they started calling Van
Halen classic rock. These are all bands I keep in rotation
currently. Something I have learned from going to see people play:
Always be there for the opener. You might find some of your
favorite music that way.
Food: Sushi, Italian, breakfast food (I love brunch). I also really
enjoy craft beer (IPA girl over here).
