Books: I've recently rediscovered magazines, most of which are
cooking-related. So I've been reading those a lot. Otherwise
favorites are Things Fall Apart, The Great Gatsby, The Corrections
and anything by David and/or Amy Sedaris. I still haven't fully
converted to my kindle.
Movies: High Fidelity, Ghostbusters, Empire Records, Singles,
Amelie, Annie Hall, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Barefoot in the Park,
The Usual Suspects, Sixteen Candles, Broken English, Sleeping
Beauty (Disney version). I also love Ang Lee and Miyazaki's films
and anything with Peter Dinklage. Also, I love The Rock--seriously,
it's a really good action movie.
TV: Game of Thrones, It's Always Sunny, Archer, Louie, Boondocks,
Psych, Community, anything on HGTV. In case that list looks
impressive, I should warn you that I don't mind a weekend Bravo
trash fest (no E! or Kardashians, I have standards) every now and
My taste in music is kinda all over the place. I have a small
record collection and I'm getting into jazz -- suggestions are
welcome. Recently played on my ipod: Artic Monkeys, Janell Monae,
The Head and the Heart, Of Monsters and Men, Fitz & the
Tantrums, Sondre Lerche, Childish Gambino, Postal Service, Mayer
Hawthorne, A Tribe Called Quest, Dum Dum Girls, Phoenix, The
Weakerthans, Passion Pit, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Kanye
West (though that Watch the Throne album is nonsense), Joni
Mitchell, Hall and Oates. If you are into Death Cab's
Transatlanticism or Minus the Bears' Highly Refined Pirates, we
should probably go ahead and lock this relationship down.
Food: Truffle fries, anything with truffles actually. Lately, I've
been into really good sandwiches. Also I love proscuitto and all
kinds of cheeses (particularly goat). I hate mayonnaise, but fried
pickle chips make my life. I love good Thai, Vietmanese (mmm, pho),
and Ethiopian food. My favorite meal is brunch. And I'm always down
for my mom's deviled eggs and my grandma's dressing. Baked goods
are always welcome -- I'm willing to make them myself.
