Books: I'm pretty into contemporary fiction. But, I also have
worked at a few bookstores over the years and my interest range has
widened because of it. I'm always reading a book -- right now it's
American Gods by Neil Gaiman, before that East of Eden by
Movies: I'm sorry to all you film buffs, but I'm not picky. My
favorite B-list horror movie is The Descent, if that tells you
Shows: Breaking Bad. Everything else is second-tier and not worth
mentioning. Except West Wing.
Music: I do love some 90's hiphop, rap, and boom bap. De La Soul,
Big Pun, and Nice & Smooth are being consistently played these
days. Pete Philly and Perquisite, Tor, RJD2, Ratatat, and Girltalk
make me tap my foot. Justin Timberlake. TI. Big Boi. Frank Ocean.
St. Vincent, Cold Speck, Paul Simon and Joni Mitchell. Mountain
Man, Glasser, The Tallest Man on Earth. Jose Gonzalez.
I think maybe one consistent genre that gets played in a variety of
moods and times is Jazz. Nothing really past the 70's/80s
though...lots of Ella, Django, Bill Evans, and the like.
Food: It's yummy.
