I love books. A great, big library or a small, independent
bookstore are two of my favorite places to hang. I know it's
convenient, but I really don't think I could vibe well with someone
who is obsessed with their Kindle. I dig the feel and smell of
books, especially second-hand ones that have cracked covers,
thoughts scribbled in the margins, and perhaps some food spilled on
it's pages. It's like a story within a story. I still love to read
the newspaper with a good cup of coffee. I've recently decided to
read every Fiction book that's won the Pulitzer Prize, in no
particular order. So far I've gotten through The Hours by Michael
Cunningham, The Road by Cormac McCarthy, and Beloved by Toni
Morrison. I fell in love with A Visit from the Goon Squad by
Jennifer Egan before I endeavored into this project. Also, Just
Kids by Patti Smith is incredibly eloquent and inspiring.
I'll be brief with the rest.
Movies- Short Term 12, True Romance, Death Proof, anything stupidly
funny like 21 Jump Street. Amelie, Before Sunrise, Cinema Paradiso,
and anything by Pedro Almodovar.
Shows- Hannibal, Homeland, House of Cards, The Wire, Modern
Music- Talking Heads, Little Dragon, The National, Sharon Van
Etten, Beck, Lana Del Rey--these are the ones I can listen to on
repeat. Anything live, I love bluegrass, jam bands, blues, jazz,
funk, and would truly love it if someone took me to the symphony.
Books and music are my favorite things in the whole world.
Food- I will try anything. Seriously.
