I have a real love affair with books, although I only ever spend a
long time with books that I enjoy. I have always had a hard time
enjoying fiction writing, but I usually try to turn that around
every so often. I’m mostly drawn to philosophical writing, poetry,
and histories. I’m not sure I’ve ever read a whole book front to
back without getting caught up in another one in the middle of
things. I really enjoy following tangents, I guess.
I’m not very discerning with movies and I mostly enjoy all kinds of
them. I’ve been recently trying to get more into watching (I have a
hard time sitting still for that long). I’ve been flirting with the
French new wave for a few months but I might be too impatient to
follow through on that interest.
I’m honestly not too into going to shows unless I really like the
band or get prepped on the background of the play. But I enjoy the
idea of visiting factories, cemeteries, antique shops, rickety
abandoned places, ports, getting lost on purpose, and other weird
things like that. Museums are also fun!
I feel a real affinity for surrealist and dada art, with the Vienna
secession getting a more-than-honorable mention, but I also enjoy
classical and classical revival-kind of art. Not sure why I like
those things since they are very different, but that’s how I came
I like gothic and gothic revival architecture, as well as Edwardian
and Beaux-Arts architectural styles. I usually dislike modernist
architecture (which makes it hard to live in New York, obviously,
but whatever.) The environment I move in definitely affects my
mood, so I have preferences. As you might have guessed, I also like
neoclassical architecture a lot.
I have a really eclectic musical taste, I listen to bad hip-hop
back to back with some nice romantic or impressionist music, and a
lot of the stuff in between I seem to appreciate for no discernable
reason. I mostly spend time in the instrumental/indie rock area, I
guess. Lately I’ve been interested in “no wave” music. I’d love to
hear your suggestions if you’re a dedicated audiophile of
I was raised on Mediterranean food and am a bit late to the party
as far as exploring other cuisines is concerned. Now that I live in
New York I’m playing catch up on this front, and loving it.
