Books: Non-fiction (history or social sciences, generally) and
comedy. Favorite book ever is "Fierce Pajamas," an anthology of
comedy writing from the New Yorker.
Movies/Shows: Make me laugh.
All three of the above can be summed up with the followings: Steve
Martin and Woody Allen.
BUT, other favorite comics include: Russell Peters (because duh),
Eugene Mirman, Flight of the Conchords, Maria Bamford, Stella, and
Music: I hate the term "World Music." Just because it's the rest of
the world to us doesn't mean they don't have genres and styles of
their own. That said, I've studied Indian, Javanese, and Middle
Eastern music Also, anything with heavy bass makes me super happy.
Currently in a wicked Die Antwoord phase that isn't going to go
away anytime soon.
Food: All of it. Junk/Expensive. If it's tasty, I like it. Current
guiltiest pleasure: Double-fried pork belly from a local Chinese
place. But I normally order it with eggplant/broccoli on the side
to not hate myself for getting it.
