Books: Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut. No, but seriously,
that sociological aspects of that book...there are so many things
to talk about; not to mention the writing is phenomenal. I like
that kind of gritty style.
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
Don't mess with my children's books. I can talk forever on Harry
Potter, Percy Jackson, the Series of Unfortunate Events, or even
Charlie Bone. I mean, a sociology class can be taught on these
types of novels.
Comic Books. I can feel the judgement from your side of the screen.
I mean, comic books are for children, right? Have you picked one up
lately? There is some really great material going on in the graphic
Authors I read: Isabel Allende, Jack Kerouac, Orson Welles, Gary
Soto, and the list simply continues.
Shows: The limit does not exist? No, it's anything supernatural
related (the show included). Oh, and I'm always game for a good
detective show, like Law and Order: SVU and Criminal Minds. It
might be the sociologist in me. I can talk for ages on the writing
in various shows, the tropes used, and how poorly the casting is. I
could probably be a pop culture major.
Movies: I'm down for action and adventure films, but will sit and
watch anything animated. Don't get me started on Hayao Miyazaki or
Pixar. I've been described as a movie buff before, but I really
wouldn't say I am. I love films like Shawshank Redemption, Steven
King's It (scared the crap out of me as a child), and Boondock
Saints. Any SAW films make me queasy and I scare quite easily. I'm
always down for a good cult film. Pulp Fiction, I'm looking at
Music: I'm all over the place. I'm not a country person, but I've
jammed to Drunk on a Plane plenty of times after a friend
introduced it to me. I love classic rock and will always sing along
to Queen, The Rolling Stones, Journey, and Santana. I grew up on
the sounds of Motown and Oldies. I mean, you can't call yourself a
San Franciscan without listening to War, Tower of Power, and all
the oldies classics, you know, those songs that play on Sunday
Nights. Honestly, though, my current playlist is loads of indie and
alternative rock like Arctic Monkeys, Passion Pit, Mumford &
Sons, and Milky Chance. I'll get down to some Childish Gambino,
Lupe Fiasco, and Watsky any day.
Food: Mexican, because it's the taste of my childhood. Oh, and
Chinese, and wine, wait, that's not food. Since I began living in
the south, I have a newfound appreciation for gumbo and beignets.
