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 At Home by Bill Bryson 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: Breaking Bad - holy fuckballs, that was good. Also - Archer.
Louie. Girls. AD. GoT. KITH. Other initialed things like BSG and
OITNB. Firefly. Veep. Sherlock. Daily Show. Last Week Tonight. West
Wing, Sports Night. Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. Various BBC
things. Blackadder esp. Some primetimey things such as Brooklyn 99,
Mindy Project and Parks & Rec. . ~ 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 - 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, many things about superheroes, Rear Window,
The Apartment, Super Troopers, Fight Club, Snatch, The Clock,
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Grosse Pointe Blank, Befores
Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight, Definitely, Maybe, Wes Anderson things, a
whole host of 80s stuff. Also, 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
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. Johnny Flynn.
Regina Spektor. CW Stoneking. Penguin Cafe Orchestra. General mix
of relatively popular hipstery bands as well as ladies who been
done wrong. 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 engrossed by Serial (though not enough
to spend hours reading the reddit sub-boards) and also still listen
to TAL, BBC Radio 4 News Quiz, The Bugle, and Wait Wait with
occasional Nerdists and WTFs thrown in for good measure.
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
