Lists are tiresome, but useful. I'm not going to list every food I
love, but I very much enjoy Mexican food, probably as my favorite.
I'm not afraid to try most foods however, and more than once have
eaten tripe because it was an experience. I like trying new things
food included. Most recently I've begun watching "Chopped" and
other food network shows that focus on how to make flavor and I've
been enjoying it and how to cook better. Food quick and delicious
has become my new passion and recently was very proud of myself for
creating 15 minute bread stuffing and 10 minute beef terriaki with
no recipe or anything. I love to cook now and while I'm not as good
as Alex Guarnaschelli I'm not terrible.
Music: I love Nirvana (yes, I'm *that* '90's kid), Bad Religion,
Alkaline Trio (pre "emo" phrase), Love "Retreat from the sun"
artist "That Dog"... so much. Music is important to me, but I'm not
one of those "THIS ALBUM DEFINES ME" guys. I can listen to just
about anything, but I like weird indie, wfnx, radio 92.9 stuff.
"Punching in a Dream" stuff. *shrug* I dunno. My music tastes are
weird. Deal with it. If lists are really your thing I love the
classic "90's" stations. From "Barbie Girl" to "Blink 182" "No
Doubt" and everything in between. I feel like there was a
connection to me and 90's music called "puberty" where we
understood each other. *shrug* I can listen to other stuff to, but
Green Day's "Dookie" Weezer's "Blue" album (as well as "Pinkerton"
and Nirvana's "Nevermind ") are to me some of the pinnacles of
music kind. Add "Maybe I'll catch fire" to the album list and
you've pretty much summed me up musically.
"Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" is my favorite movie. But I
love many, MANY genres of movie and film (they're different). From
"Harold and Kumar go to White Castle" stoner movies to "Leon"
action films, to anime of many kinds, to "Blue" "White" and "Red"
the French films, to just about anything you can think of. "Warm
Bodies" was surprisingly amazing, and I loved "Let Me In". But I
also loved the new "Red Riding hood" with Amanda Siedfried. So...
you know... I love movies. God, I even liked "Iron Skies" about
Nazis from the moon. There is a time and place for every movie, and
since I generally learn visually, I want to see them all.
...and there are way too many books that I love to name. Books are
awesome. Print books! Though my roommate recently gave me a kindle
for Christmas, I prefer a print book. Though I'm no longer so
militant about the death of ebooks to recommend that they be
destroyed. I love holding a book in my hand. However I will say
that Terry Pratchet has influenced my life probably more than is
healthy. I just finished the "Song of Ice and Fire" series that I
got for Christmas. George RR Martin is dead to me until he finishes
the fucking series because otherwise "why?"
I don't watch a ton of TV, but I enjoy some. "The Wire" I think is
the best drama I've ever seen. Until I watched the Brittish drama
"Skins" and that hands down is the best show (drama or otherwise)
that I've ever seen in my life. Period. End of story. "Futurama"
remains amazing. Old "the simpsons" are some of my
favorites."Raising Hope" is good, "Fraggle Rock" I feel holds up
pretty well. "Golden Girls" is still freaking hilarious.
