Beavers, Ah! Real Monsters, Cat-Dog, and of course...Ren &
Suspense, Horror, Documentaries, Sundance, Sci-Fi, Chick Flicks,
Drama, some comedy too. Anything with an incredible score written
for it...for example, you'll score points by lying about how
Winter's Bone is your absolute favorite film. This is my DVD rack

Village, Eyes Wide Shut, Signs, The Savages, Girl With the pearl

I don't feel like naming all the books on my to-read list.
Howard Pyle, NC Wyeth, Harvey Dunn, Jessie Willcox Smith, Maxfield
Parrish, Marshal Arisman, Francis Bacon, Albrecht Durer, Vermeer,
John Waterhouse, Edward Burne-Jones, Klimpt, Giacometti, Brom,
Brian Fraud...name dropping on influences is necesarry.
Like every other artsy-fartsy person, the music I enjoy ranges from
Classical to Metal and all things in between. Live music is the
best kind hands down but I'll settle for my BOSE headphones if not
a show. Some gems in my collection lately include the Dead Meadow,
Alcest, U2, and The Black Angels. Work mode normally consists of
way to much post-rock but it's something near and dear to my heart.
Of course there are times when I'll throw on Prince or Kenny
Loggins for some "cheese-dick" 80's music. That's what happens when
your mother used to backup sing for Gloria Estefan.
Some Personal favorites:
Coil, Death in June, The Cramps, Swans, Boyd Rice, Killing Joke,
Non, Skinny Puppy, Butthole Surfers, Cocteau Twins, Front 242,
KMFDM, Nitzer Eb, Cloaks, Siouxsie and the Banshees, My Bloody
Valentine, The Chameleons, Bauhaus, Joy Division, White Zombie,
Godflesh, Final, JK Flesh (basically all material by Justin
Broadrick), Pigface, Curve, Ride, Blut Aus Nord, Vessels, Collapse
Under the Empire, Tones on Tail, Love and Rockets.
I eat a pretty excessive amount of candy, especially after
Halloween rolls by. If you give me some dark chocolate or
sweat/sour candy, rest assured I'll be a happy camper. I'll even
make you a mean pot of chili to die for.
