The first things people usually notice about me
My incredible charm and grace, i assume
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a bit ashamed that i don't read as many fiction books as i would like, but my favourites are Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Godfather, and A Clockwork Orange . Been getting into Russian Sci Fi lately. I tend to enjoy non-fiction, especially books on art and photography. I'm one of those nerdy types that actually really likes researching things. Yes, i am boring.
Favourite movies. I'm kind of a cinephile, but a few are The Shining, The Blues Brothers, Lost in Translation, Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Rocky Horror Picture Show, High Fidelity, Clerks, Trainspotting, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Back to the Future (all three), Ghostbusters, Starship Troopers, Midnight Cowboy, A Clockwork Orange, Two Lane Blacktop, Vanishing Point. I've seen the Rocky Horror Picture Show sooooooo many times. Pretty sure i've topped 100 viewings. I can do The Time Warp perfectly if i'm in the mood
Shows. I don't really watch TV. The only shows i try to keep up with are Archer and Bob's Burgers. And i try to catch The Daily Show when possible.
My taste is music is a bit eclectic. I love the blues. I like big band music & swing sometimes. Dean Martin could sing the phone book and i'd love it. I'm always in the mood for Social Distortion, The Ramones, The Clash, or Rancid. I can't helpt but sing along to Abba. I also like metal, celt/irish punk, classic punk, real country music, 50's doo-wop, gypsy/russian punk, J-pop, outlaw country, bad 80s music, and 70s funk. Like i said, eclectic!
Food... I love pizza. And pasta. I could eat fish every day and be happy. Sausage is always good. I was almost stabbed by a homeless person once because i just had to have a Maxwell St polish at 3am when working downtown. Totally worth getting shanked for. I prefer spicy stuff. I love mexican food, thai, and i'm hooked on good ramen lately. I just can't get enough of cuban food (and that amazing coffee), and one of my all-time favourite restaraunts is a tiny Brazilian corner bar in San Diego. None of that steak on a sword crap. Fish, pork, brahma beer, guarana, and i think they are called pastels? Just amazing. And my ultimate weakness is banana bread and pumpkin bread. And sometimes fried plantains. And green tea ice cream. Oh, and Guinness. Loooooove stout!
The six things I could never do without
That's pretty dramatic, isn't it? How about six things i really truly would hate to be without? That would be art, a fast car, family, friends, my camera, and my dog, in no particular order
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to take over the world....
On a typical Friday night I am
At the gym. I'm not very exciting...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes like dance/electronic music. It's my secret shame
You should message me if
you don't mind talking to a weird, pedantic, chubby, crazy dog person. Or if you always wanted to hear really boring stories about life as a railroader in the twenty first century. Or if you are a fellow movie nerd. So just do it. Come on. You know you want to message me. So just do it already
