I binge lit and tv shows....
I tend to find someone I like and then read everything they wrote.
I don't have favourite books so much as favourite authors. N.
Gaiman, T. Pratchett, C. Moore, D. Parker, J. Austen, D. Sedaris,
D. Eggers, V. Woolfe, and a bunch of poets and playwrights as well
as the odd non-fiction book. Reading Bossypants right now. Well,
clearly not actually "right" now. Right now I'm updating this
superficial but somewhat enlightening information about myself on
the theory (totally bastardized from Nick Hornby) that romantic
connections are not about what you are like but about what you
like. Oh, I like Hornby as well.
TV: House of Cards . Louie. Archer. Girls. Parenthood. Arrested
Development. Game of Thrones. Veep. Daily Show. West Wing. KITH.
BSG. Mad Men. Newsroom. Luther. Various BBC things. Been watching
Murder, She Wrote on the Netflix... Just cuz. Also, I watch some
primetimey things like New Girl, Brooklyn 99 and Parks & Rec. I
love the Sherlock reboot and think Benedict Cumberbatch has the
best name ever. ~ On a side note, but TV related - If you travel
through space and time in a blue police box, I'll hope that at
least one of your hearts beats for me.
Movies: Lots. Selection includes - Lego Movie was great fun,
Avengers, Away We Go, (500) Days of Summer, An Education, Princess
Bride, When Harry Met Sally, Bourne Identity, Confessions of a
Dangerous Mind, The Hudsucker Proxy, Joe vs the Volcano, anything
Jane Austeny, anything about spies, Rear Window, Super Troopers,
Fight Club, Snatch, The Clock, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless
Mind, Grosse Pointe Blank, Befores Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight, a whole
host of 80s movies and the Muppet Movies. And sometimes, I really
like watching shit blow up. Thank you, Michael Bay. I like most
movies except for horror pics. Unless they're funny like Shaun of
the Dead or Zombieland.
Music: If you want to introduce me to stuff, that's peachy keen.
What I like - Bon Iver. Alexi Murdoch. The National. Tallest Man on
Earth. Of Monsters and Men. Mumford & Sons. Regina Spektor. CW
Stoneking. General mix of relatively popular hipstery bands as well
as "vagina music." Can't beat Cohen and Waits and Dylan. Nina
Simone. Billy Bragg. Doors. Radiohead. The Cure and The Smiths and
The Pixies and The Femmes. And last but certainly not least, my
Podcasts: Been cutting back on my podcast consumption of late so as
to read more in transit but still listen to TAL, BBC Radio 4 News
Quiz, The Bugle, Wait Wait, StarTalkRadio (I heart Neil deGrasse
Food: I don't eat mammals but I don't have a problem with people
who do. I am allergic to mushrooms, blue cheese and cucumbers. I
heart seafood. I enjoy cooking and consider myself something of
