Books: I read a lot of narrative non-fiction and the occasional
memoir. I like to pepper in a bit of fiction for variety. I'm a big
fan of my neighborhood public library.
Movies: I crave documentaries. I dig foreign and independent films.
I enjoy the occasional comedy. Comic book movies are a guilty
pleasure. Some of my favorite movies are: Dear Zachary: A Letter to
a Son About his Father, The Fountain, Secretary, The Departed and
(500) Days of Summer. I recently watched Richard Linklater's
"Before" trilogy and found them intoxicating. Julie Delpy is beyond
Shows: When I had cable, I watched most anything that aired on FX,
A&E, History and AMC. Love the Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, and
Mad Men. Also love Community, Parks & Rec, 30Rock, Sherlock,
and anything on PBS.
Music: I enjoy a wide variety of genres, but generally don't listen
to what you'd normally hear on commercial radio. Most recently,
I've been really into Father John Misty, Tame Impala and Toro y
Moi. Also, Calexico and a lil' band out of Lubbock, Tx called
Thrift Store Cowboys. I have a sizable collection of old soul and
vintage country. I also enjoy indie rock, folk, bluegrass,
alternative country, and Americana. My favorite singer/songwriter
is Cory Branan. Ryan Adams is always on heavy rotation at my
Food: I eat quite a bit of ethnic food: Thai, Vietnamese, Indian,
Mexican. The spicier the better. Oh, and hummus. Loads of it.The
only thing I'm really not down with is seafood.
Libations: I enjoy Texas-brewed craft beers - I'm all about IPA's
and sour beers at the moment. I feel sexy when I drink whiskey.
Yeah, I said it. A nice spicy bloody mary is also good.
