I often skip over this part in others' profiles, but if you like
lists, here are a bunch that are completely pointless when it comes
to compatibility, but were fun for me to make.
Books : Just finished Inside of a Dog. I'm currently enjoying
Southern Bastards (graphic novel by Jason Aaron & Jason Latour)
as well as starting The History Of Love by Nicole Krause.
Everything Vonnegut (duh).
Movies : All well thought out documentaries, drama, action, horror,
and sci-fi are appreciated. Some of my favorite narratives are The
Shining, Cities of Lost Children, Delicatessen, The Descent, To
Kill A Mockingbird, Rear Window, The Departed, Apocalypse Now, The
Host (Korean) and Let The Right One In (original).
And, of course, the usual directors : Kubrick, Hitchcock, Coens,
Park Chan Wook, Pedro Almodóvar, Scott, Coppola & Boyle.
Food : Mostly grilled (or raw) fish, spicy organic vegetables,
fresh fruit, nuts, hummus, and the occasional juicy-ass organic
Humor : Clever and absurd.
TV : The Wire, True Detective (1st season), Last Week Tonight,
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmitt, Jessica Jones.
Theater : Last year, I took in two plays, in two days, on two
coasts. See what I just did there? I too can be a world traveling,
name dropping jack-ass, without actually dropping any names.
Music : The big ones for me are Bowie, Biggie, Stevie, Dolly &
Johnny. Also, early Brian Eno, Missy Elliot & Bill Withers kill
I have been fortunate to have seen/heard Prince perform 5 times (4
of which over 2 days in a small, 500 capacity room)!
I also have a great deal of love for Talking Heads, John Coltrane,
PJ Harvey, Refused, Iggy & The Stooges, Blond Redhead, Tom
Waits, Billie Holiday, Metallica, Depeche Mode, Fugazi, Eric B.
& Rakim, Screaming Females, Bad Brains, Radiohead (The Bends -
In Rainbows), Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Joy Division, Wire, Gang of
Four, Public Enemy, Happy Fangs, King Sunny Ade, The Birthday
Party, and The Smiths. Yes, The Smiths were awesome. Morrissey? Not
