Books: I tend to read books that are written based on experiences
and perspectives that differ from my own. I usually read
non-fiction such as journalistic or historical accounts and
biographies. Some books that I like are "Imperial Life in the
Emerald City," "In the Garden of Beasts," "The Motorcycle Diaries,"
and "Crooked Cucumber."
Movies: I like all kinds of movies. I like foreign films, action
movies (the ones that actually make sense), comedies, independent
films, and well-made documentaries. Here are ten of my favorites:
Trainspotting, Memento, City of God, Talk to Her, The Bourne
Supremacy, Casino Royale, The 25th Hour, Café de Flore, O Homem do
Ano (Man of the Year), Circo.
TV: I don’t usually watch TV on my own, but sometimes I’ll watch
shows with friends. I’m really behind on these series, but I like
Breaking Bad, The League, Modern Family, and Community.
Music: I like a lot of different music: rock, blues, reggae, rap,
as long as it's good music I'll listen to it. If I really like a
song I'll probably try to learn to play it on bass. "Morphine" is
one of my favorite bands (most people haven't heard of them, but
they're great). I like a lot of rock bands with female vocalists
like "The Kills" (just saw them at the Neptune) and "Yeah Yeah
Yeahs." I should also mention M.I.A., she's awesome.
Food: I love trying new kinds of food and finding good restaurants.
I generally eat healthy when I’m making my own food, but when I go
out to eat I order whatever looks good.
