My favorite books include science fiction, young adult, fantasy,
anything that is interesting. My favorite author is Bret Easton
Ellis. The world of sex, drugs, and murder that he paints
fascinates me. Less Than Zero, The Rules Of Attraction, Glamorama,
those are some of my favorites. Other than Ellis books? Glancing
over at my bookshelf, I'll say Harry Potter and Looking For
I also have a decent collection of comic books and graphic novels.
Scott Pilgrim, Sin City, Y: The Last Man. Jeff Lemire's Sweet Tooth
and Garth Ennis's The Boys are two of my favorites. And if course a
slew of Batman, Iron Man and others.
As for movies, that list can go on for days. As I've stated
earlier, I aspire to be a filmmaker, so I watch a lot of movies. My
all time favorite will always be Clerks, because it inspired me to
be a filmmaker. It was a real, "If that's a movie, I could make one
too," kind of moment. I try to watch the movies that you'd expect
to be at the Oscars, like Milk or Slumdog Millionaire, but I also
like to have a good time going to the theater, seeing stuff like
Spider-Man or The Avengers. I'm not wholly pretentious, I'll watch
a cheesy action movie like The Expendables. The best movie I've
seen this year (besides the obvious The Dark Knight Rises) is
Moonrise Kingdom. A few of my favorite movies off the top of my
head would be The Royal Tenenbaums, Brick, Who Framed Roger Rabbit,
and Empire Records.
I love music, unless it's country or rap. You would think, coming
from Texas, country is all I listen to, but I absolutely hate it,
it's all so stereotypical. Cowboys, soldiers, drinking, horses, I'd
like to hear a country song that has nothing to do with any of
those. And rap has never been music to me, it's only been noise.
Occasionally though, I'll find a song that I find a little catchy,
but it's rare.
I've been on an electronic kick ever since I watched Drive. I've
purchased quite a bit of Kavinsky, College, and Chromatics lately.
Other favorites would be Green Day, Jack's Mannequin, and Andrew
W.K. I also enjoy 80s music from all genres, mostly pop and New
Wave, and I've found I really enjoy 50s rock and roll. Other
stations in my Pandora are devoted to opera, contemporary jazz, and
classical, for when the mood strikes. I like to have a
And finally food. Well, I can't lie and say I eat healthy. I try to
avoid vegetables if I can. I mean, I'll eat them, they are good for
me, but if given the choice? A big fat meh. I love junk food. I
can't get enough of it. I used to have two hot pockets and a
vanilla Coke for lunch every day, but I haven't been on that diet
in years. I signed up for a gym membership though. I plan to be
thin again eventually.
