Food = Everything. Jk but srsly tho guise my motto is to try
anything five times. By the time you get to five you're gonna start
to acquire a taste or something; it's my job so yeah. Here's a few
for fun: Okra, Dr. Pepper, Goat cheese. Why do all of these things
sound better in my head when I put MOTHERFUCKING in front of them?
You wanna see me geek out? Talk food. A lot of my friends are
vegan/vegetarian, so I'm getting the chance to work on my skills
I'm an adept wine enthusiast, and beginning down the path of craft
beers as well. I am a super-taster, meaning I have an increased
number of bitter receptive taste-buds , meaning IPA's blow me the
fuck away. I want to like them, but I simply can't taste anything
but overwhelming bitterness. I'm super into Trappist ales,
barleywines, and pilsners though!

Ghost in the Shell, *Lost in Translation* (AHGH ITS SO GOOD),

you fucking laugh), R.A. Salvatore, Stephen King. I read a ton of
professional cooking technical manuals/cookbooks. Modernist
Cuisine, Under Pressure, stuff like that. I've started educating
myself about the history of Feminism and the different struggles
that different interest groups have alongside one another (POC,
LGBTQ persons, and the struggles of men and women and everyone in
between are all very different). I still have quite a ways to go
though; I feel woefully ignorant in conversation with a lot of my
Music...Ah! I'm open to any genre. Jazz (Big Band Era) and
Electronica (Trance, Downtempo, Dubstep, Lo-fi, House). The more
lyric-centric the genre, the less I listen to it, though I have my
favourite artists and songs from every genre just the same.
Lots of Drum and Bass recently. Got an artist to suggest to me? Get
on that shit yo™
