My friend challenged me to only list five books and five movies. I
failed (the ones in bold are the the top 5)...
Books:Heart of Darkness, As I Lay
Dying, The Lord of the Rings, Pedro Paramo, Disgrace,
Bailey's Cafe, The Book Thief, Snow Crash, Rise of Silas Lapham,
Hunger Games Trilogy, Expiration Date, The Wheelman, City of
Theives, Devil in the White City, Lost City of Z, The Tragedy of
Arthur, World War Z, The Big Sleep, Red Harvest,
X-Men: Messiah Complex, Messiah War, Second
Coming, Batman: The Long Halloween, The Watchmen.
I read a lot and don't limit myself to genres, but I really love
Noir (Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, Duane Swierzcynski) and
graphic novel (both superhero and non-superhero). But I could
definitely talk about more. I'm currently reading Marvel: The
Untold Story and Roma.
Movies: The Avengers and all of its movies, Cloud Atlas, Argo,
Seven Psychopaths, The Fountain, Magnolia,
Children of Men, City of God, Memento,
Dark Knight trilogy, Black Swan, True Grit,
Inception, The Fall, No Country for Old Men, Dead
Poets Society, Gone Baby Gone, The Artist, M, Touch of Evil,
Lord of the Rings, Eternal Sunshine of the
Spotless Mind, Star Trek, Matrix, Amelie, The Muppets, X-Men,
Garden State, Interstate 60, The Hangover, Hot Fuzz, Biutiful,
Moonrise Kingdom...so many more. Favorite directors: Christopher
Nolan, Daren Aronofsky, and the Coen Brothers.
I love movies and I try to go to the movie theater as often as
possible. So if you like film, we'll have a lot to talk about. And,
with a lot of great movies coming out, it would be nice to have a
pal to see them with.
TV: LOST, Community, Office, Daily Show,
Breaking Bad, Modern Family, How I Met Your
Mother, The Daily Show, Firefly, Colbert Report, Once Upon a Time,
Scrubs, 30 Rock, Game of Thrones, Chuck, Mad Men, Parks and
Recreation, Arrow, Brooklyn 99....this makes me seem like a TV
junkie, but I'm really not. I generally just binge watch from time
Music: The Fratellis, TV on the Radio, Trans-Siberian Orchestra,
Hans Zimmer, Nina Simone, Kronos Quartet, Phillip Glass, the
Section Quartet. I like pretty much all genres and will give
everything a chance. My Ipod has everything from Method Man to
Food: Italian by default (what I cook and what I am--and I am not
the Jersey Shore kind. Or the Soprano kind)
