BOOKS: I just looked at my bookshelf. It tells a sad story of
things I need to read. Currently working on some design books about
usability and design, but also always reading at least one or two
comics and graphic novels. Some all-time favorites include The
Cheese Monkeys, Snow Crash, The Big Sleep, Catch-22, Hitchhikers
Guide to the Galaxy, and Understanding Comics. I try to trade off
between "fun" books and "smart" books. Also ton of graphic novels
(read Box Office Poison, it's amazing).
MOVIES: I'm a fan of interesting style and clever writing. I have a
soft spot for Marx Brothers movies, When Harry Met Sally, Black
Dynamite, High Fidelity, Brick, and most of the works of Aaron
Sorkin. Oh, and I have been a part of and attended many midnight
showings of Rocky Horror. I've seen my fair share of indie and
foreign flicks, and liked most of them. My favorite thing about
movies is talking about them with other people, whether they like
them or hate them.
SHOWS: I keep up on a lot of TV while I'm doing other things. I've
watched lots of British mysteries. I can't stand Big Bang Theory.
Have you seen Steven Universe? If you have, definitely message me.
I'm currently very obsessed and could use someone who appreciates
it. The music alone, not to mention the beautifully painted
PODCASTS (yep, threw those in too): How Did This Get Made, Startup,
Radiolab, Harmontown, Sklarboro Country, The Nerdist, and My
Brother My Brother and Me.
MUSIC: The Sheepdogs, The Raconteurs, The Beatles (cliche I know),
Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, Cake, Tobacco, RJD2, Rodrigo y
Gabriela, The Protomen, a fair amount of Miles Davis-era jazz, a
leftover teenage love of ska and punk, and an odd fascination with
FOOD: Great coffee is big. I like to eat out and try new things,
but love the classics like a good peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
I tend to eat mostly vegetarian because I like to eat healthy. I
keep "kosher style" (no cheeseburgers, but don't expect anyone else
to). I like to cook but never by myself, unless it's homemade
pizza. And pie. I have a severe weakness for pie. If you have a
favorite type of or place to get pie, please let me know as soon as
