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 The Art of Betrayal: The
Secret History of MI6 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
TV: Orange is the New Black - totally devoured it. Louie. Archer.
Downton. Girls. Homeland. Arrested Development. Game of Thrones.
Veep. Daily Show. West Wing. KITH. BSG. Mad Men. Luther. Various
BBC things. Recently rewatched all of Cheers and Frasier. Just cuz.
Also, I watch some primetimey things like New Girl 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 - 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, 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. 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 Femmes.
And last but certainly not least, my friends' bands.
Podcasts: Nerdist, TAL, BBC Radio 4 News Quiz, The Bugle, Wait
Wait, StarTalkRadio (I heart Neil deGrasse Tyson)
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
