Books: Frankenstein is my all time favorite novel, but I also love
other classics like 1984 and The Great Gatsby. My "guilty" pleasure
comes in the form of Sherlock Holmes stories. I read markedly more
plays than books, and generally prefer them, particularly anything
Ancient Greek or Shakespeare, but also modern works like the plays
of Williams, O'Neill, Chekhov, Suzan Lori-Parks, and Angels in
America (which is wonderful).
Movies: I mostly prefer blockbuster action flicks that don't
involve cars, fantastically written films, or terrible cult
classics. Also, if you talk actors with me, please feel free to
educate me: the list of actors I obsess over is small, but I love
hearing about why people love why watching certain players. Steel
thyselves for obsessive retaliation, however.
Television/radio: BBC Sherlock, Elementary (both are brilliant and
I will argue in defense of both), Grenada!Holmes, NBC Hannibal,
Arrested Development, The IT Crowd, A Bit of Fry and Laurie, Monty
Python, I occasionally obsess over pre-Moffat Doctor Who and Star
Trek (tos, tng, and aos), Old-time Holmes radio where Holmes would
talk about laundry soaps in adverts, Cabin Pressure (literally the
best radio comedy in existence), Births Deaths and Marriages,
Welcome to Night Vale (which is taking over my life), et al.
Music: I like what I like. Mostly female indie vocalists, poppy fun
dance music, New Orleans jazz, swing, and electro swing. I also
listen to a lot of instrumental music because that is the music to
which I typically choreograph; thus, a lot of film scores and
Food: as long as there are people to commune with and good food,
that is all that matters.
