Love Neil Gaiman, Nick Hornby, Jonathan Tropper, Jenny Lawson,
Cathy Lamb, Diana Gabaldon, and Bill Bryson (to name a few). My
favorite book is probably "East of Eden" and "Ready Player One" was
super awesome (hooray, they're making it into a movie!)
Movies - Favorites include:
Guardians of the Galaxy (Groooot!), the rest of the Marvel Universe
situation that's happening now, The Way Way Back, 20 Feet from
Stardom, Argo, Station Agent, Princess Bride, Never Again,
Spaceballs, Once, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Shawshank Redemption,
Coming to America and anything from John Hughes.
I also love Audrey Hepburn movies, indie films and some
documentaries. Indie theatres, like E Street in DC, the AMC in
Shirlington or the Angelika in NYC are fantastic.
I also love anything Pixar does, and really enjoy kid's movies,
even though I have to borrow kids to go to see them.
TV - "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt", random shows on HGTV or the Food
Network (that guy on Restaurant Impossible scares me a little),
Mythbusters, and Sherlock.
I'm a fan of BBC comedies (Coupling, The IT Crowd) and I love
searching Roku for whatever awesome thing I can binge-watch.
I miss Jon Stewart.
I love live theatre! Oh my goodness do I want to see "Hamilton" on
Broadway! I promise to try very hard not to geek out about my love
of theatre too much.
Music feeds my soul. Anywhere from Mozart to Mumford & Sons,
from Etta James to Frank Sinatra. From The Cure to Billy Joel to
(early)Tori Amos to Tool. Love Bruno Mars, The Script, The Rescues
and The Bird & The Bee... from NWA to Led Zeppelin. Pete Yorn,
Gavin DeGraw, O.A.R., Bon Iver, Fitz & The Tantrums, Broken
Bells...love it. 80s music, especially brit pop, YES PLEASE.
I'll listen to basically anything except for death metal, prog
rock, hard core rap and throat music.
I love Thai, Mexican (I am DEEPLY suspicious of people who don't
love tacos) Indian, some sushi, a good deep dish, and delicious
tapas. Oh, and cheese. All of the cheese. Except the really hard
cheese. But even then, probably I want that.
And Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs.
