Favorite books: Sirens of Titan, Me Talk Pretty One Day, The Giver,
Gene Wolfe's The Book of the New Sun.
Favorite movies: Buffalo 66, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars,
Shawshank Redemption, Schindler's List. I've been more interested
in documentaries than scripted stuff lately... The Cocaine Cowboys
was pretty good, Restrepo, Korengal. Oh, and I like Justice League
and other DC comic animated movies... I'm a dork. The stories are
often simple but I like to see how characters are reinterpreted and
how the imaginings of so many people evolve into a massive universe
full of life (albeit completely imagined) and mythology.
Favorite music: Peter Gabriel, Bon Iver, Elbow, Tool, Pinback,
Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Led Zeppelin, Vivaldi, Mozart, Dvorak,
Beatles, Beck. There's too much stuff to mention. But I've been
listening to music less and messing around with it and creating my
own more lately.
Favorite food: I like breakfast stuff the best, eggs and sausage
and the like... or a nice, manly quiche. Quiche is great. I do not
like vegan food, or I should say I don't like vegan food that is
meant to look and taste like regular food - for instance vegan
buffalo wings. I do however like vegan food that is what it is, for
instance, asparagus. I'm trying to eat healthier, one day I'd like
to eat all organic food and have a great big garden and own
chickens and stuff. It's important to me but with my upbringing and
current situation, it's kind of hard. I'd love to meet someone who
cares about where their food comes from, is aware of the pitfalls
of navigating a healthy lifestyle, hopefully manages those pitfalls
far better than I do… and they should know what Monsanto is.
TV: Nova, Nature, PBS specials, I watch Tosh.0 sometimes but I'm
not really proud to broadcast that. The Walking Dead, Adventure
Time… yes, I like that cartoon show loosely intended for children,
it's a fascinating, post-apocalyptic world they created despite it
being very childish... look at me, defending my tastes to people I
don't know. I sort of liked Breaking Bad, but it made me sad to
watch it, you know? Heisenberg is just a jerk. It's hard to root
for a jerk, unless they don't know they're being a jerk like the
protagonist in Buffalo 66.
I also love the Comedy Bang Bang podcast. It doesn't really fit the
other categories but I wanted to mention it. Stand up comedy is
something I'd really like to try but that scares me a hell of a lot
more than singing in front of people. So I really like comedy
specials and podcasts with comedians like Comedy Bang Bang, or
maybe WTF with Marc Maron. Some of my favorite comedians are Dave
Chapelle, Bill Burr, Louis C.K., and Craig Ferguson.
