I'll just list a few of each that come to mind.
Books: One flew over the cuckoo's nest, Great Gatsby,
Slaughterhouse five, Plato's Republic, On The Road, Electric Kool
Aid Acid Test, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
Movies: Star Wars, anything with zombies, Terry Gilliam movies,
Tarrantino movies, Spinal Tap, oh and all Mel Brooks / Monty
Shows: Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Battlestar Gallactica, Parks and
Recreation, Modern Family, Bones (guilty pleasure), Arrested
Food: Thai, mexican, peruvian, argentinian, chinese, korean, BBQ,
peanut butter, anything spicy. I am a bit a Sriracha addict.
Music: It is a major cop out when people say, "I listen to
everything, like, literally, everything". When we start using words
like "everything" - we open the floor to a lot of doubt as well as
some serious late night philosophical debates. So, no, I don't
listen to everything but I do listen to quite a bit more than some.
I started making a list of artists, but to be terribly honest, it
was getting rather long and unwieldy; there were so many commas
(like my last sentence).
I grew up with a steady diet of classic rock, Motown, soul, and
jazz. I went through an angsty phase in my teens and I was opened
up to punk, alternative, and hard core. In my later teens I went
through a hippie phase and got into jam bands, electronic music,
more jazz, and middle eastern music. Then in college my ears were
exposed to classical music and i fell in love with romantic and
impressionism composers as well as neo classical and 20th century
composers. Through college to now I've been listening to a lot of
electronic music, indie rock, folk, minimalism, and I am constantly
seeking out new music.
Just to give you some names and commas here is what I listened to
the day when I made this: The Beatles, Radiohead, Brian Eno, Haim,
The Flaming Lips, Steve Reich, Fleet Foxes, Boards of Canada, Dirty
Projectors, Bjork, Pink Floyd, St. Vincent.
