Books- Steppenwolf. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Snow
Crash. I have three books I am reading at any given time and I
finish them all very very slowly despite reading fairly quickly.
I'm rarely comfortable discussing books until I've finished them. I
have a Kindle because I get really self-conscious about people
asking what I'm reading, or trying to comment on it because they've
read it themselves, or making book recommendations, or actually
just talking to me in general a lot of the time. Not that I'm not
friendly, I just don't want to talk, a lot of the time? I can't
spend an hour on the phone. I don't have the attention span.
Short story- The Country of the Blind, by H.G. Wells
Poem- The Tyger, by William Blake. Howl, by Allen Ginsberg.
Movies - Gattaca, Equilibrium, V for Vendetta. Anything Tarantino
breathes on. I don't consider myself an intellectual, no. I've
watched Dead Poet's Society like six times. Not on purpose, it just
happened that way.
Music - I LISTEN ONLY TO POST-ROCKCORE COMPOSED ON THE ELECTRUM
AXE-LYRES OF A SPECIFIC CLASS OF ANGELIC WHORE-GUARDIANS.
Everything else I like only accidentally. I like Jeff Buckley,
Rush, Blind Guardian, Wu Tang Clan, Die Antwoord, Uncle Tupelo,
Nirvana, The Flaming Lips, Peaches, and I've had the Space
theme stuck in my head on-and-off for the past fifteen
years. Warning, I may be quirky. Definitely not your Manic Pixie,
though. Usually more of a panicked mixie.
I enjoy crunchy food, crisp food, savory food, and bittersweet
drinks. Not a huge fan of greasy, most of the time. I've gotten
into sous-vide cooking lately because my housemate has a cool
immersion circulator thing and well-prepared steaks are amazing. If
you're veg*n or *tarian or kosher or halal or whatever that's cool,
but I don't change my diet for anything except allergies.
