Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: David Sedaris, Charles Bukowski, and Confederacy of Dunces
(if you know the book, then you probably already knew I was a
Movies: Anything that involves Rob Reiner and/or Christopher Guest,
Tim Burton, Pedro Almodovar, Q.T. or the Coen Bros. And of course
the Godfather - but that goes without saying, right? I generally
prefer indie and foreign films because they're usually just better,
but I'll watch certain blockbusters just to keep up on pop culture.
I have 'boycotted' watching the oscars (and any hollywood awards
shows) ever since Shawshank Redemption lost to Forrest Gump for
best picture. wtf?
Music: VERY ecclectic - though I tend to lean towards bands like
Muse, Black Keys, Band of Skulls, Jet... etc. Short list also
includes Elliott Smith, Iguanas, G. Love & Special Sauce, My
Morning Jacket, Triumph, Kansas, Neko Case, anything Stanton Moore
related, Iron Maiden, Drive By Truckers, Hawksley Workman,
Calexico, Queensryche, and oh, about 10,000 others. And anything
that absolutely lays down the funk (if there is an appropriate
place to insert 'good god-y'all', then count me in!) I think Kings
of Leon are severely over-rated. Yeah, I said it. I tend to really
dislike any homogenous manufactured lowest common denominator top
40 bubblegum garbage. (Although every once in a while a song like
that will get it's hooks in me and I'll hate myself for liking it.)
And 80's metal will always have a place in my heart.
TV: Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert, Archer, SOA, Metalocolypse,
Justified, Dexter, Mythbusters, Wilfred (1st season - great. 2nd
season - wtf?), Portlandia, An Idiot Abroad, Natgeo, Discovery,
History channel, Breaking Bad, etc...
