Books--anything and everything. I love dystopian novels
in A Strange Land and Brave New World, etc. I also love classics,
regular fiction, non-fiction, ethnographies, and...I'll admit it,
romance novels. Basically, I read A LOT.
Movies--Almost anything, from craptacular exploitation flicks to
blockbusters and art/foreign stuff. Some favorites are Amelie
(obviously), The Fifth Element, 28 Days Later, Society (if you've
seen this we HAVE to be friends), Ginger Snaps AND Jennifer's Body
(twins, I'd say), Firefly and Serenity, Cecile B. Demented, Leon:
The Professional, Howl's Moving Castle, Bio-Dome, Planet Terror,
David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick flicks. I don't watch a lot of t.v.
but when I do it's usually either British (Misfits, The Mighty
Boosh, Friday Night Dinner, Psychoville) or pay channel (True
Blood, The Tudors, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Rome, Dexter and
Deadwood, Game of Thrones). How about that season finale on Walking
Dead?! My all-time favorite heroine is AEon Flux (most emphatically
NOT the movie). And I kind of slay at Jeopardy!.
Music--Little bit of everything. Ska is the music of my soul, but
classic rock, 90's alternative, some pop, a little underground
hiphop, opera every now and again, neoswing, steampunk, dubstep.
Pretty musically omnivorous.
As for food, I prefer salty/savory to sweet, but like that too.
Living in San Diego has given me a profound appreciation of Cotixan
food. I will put the hurt on California burrito from Lolita's.
