Books: I read a lot of fashion illustration and patternmaking books
as reference, but 1984 by George Orwell is the constant. I could
read it a hundred times over and find something new each time. I
knoowwwwwwwwww you don't have to tell me. I read it for the first
time in high school, too.
I also like Joseph Campbell. Kyballion is neat. I'm slowly dipping
my toes into philosophy and kaballah, so anything related to those
subjects is pretty rad. Anything dealing with dystopia, astronomy,
horror or mythology. I love a good fiction novel. This does not
include anything on Oprah's hot list. Also textbooks.
#textbooks4lyfe To all you cuties/smarties/arties/farties: of
course I like Bukowski and Vonnegut. I'm currently reading Guns,
Germs, and Steel, and after that I have The Windup Bird Chronicle
Movies: HORROR MOVIES. The Last Unicorn, documentaries. Kitschy
conspiracy theory documentaries are the best. Dude, Mad Max was off
the chain balls-good. Total Recall. When someone starts a story off
by asking, "have you ever seen (classic movie that almost everyone
has seen)," and clearly are assuming that you have because their
entire story hinges on having seen the movie, I'm the person that
goes "no, but I've heard of it." I don't wanna be that person, so I
am way down for watching movies in the name of not making it
difficult for other people to tell me stories.
Shows: The usual suspects - Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The
Simpsons, Adventure Time, Rick and Morty, 30 Rock, Broad City. The
same thing goes for TV shows as it does for movies. 2015 may be the
year that I cave and get a Netflix subscription.
If you love this song, then I love you (hint: It's Chris Cohen).
I tend to like the classics like Fleetwood Mac, Simon and
Garfunkel, Jackie Wilson, Motown (especially Marvin Gaye), Prince,
etc. But I've been listening to Tortoise, Kate Bush, Lianne La
Havas, Feist, Yellow Magic Orchestra and Frank Zappa, Höyry-kone,
King Crimson, Little Dragon, Siouxsie Sioux, and early 90s
intellectual hip hop a lot lately. I've also been
visiting/revisiting music from the early 2000's like Max Tundra,
The Knife, LCD Sound System, etc. The new Hiatus Kaiyote album blew
me away. I love music so freaking much, and always want to hear new
Food: ME WANT FOOOOOODDD (please tell me you get that reference)!
Anything, as long as there is no mayonnaise in it. Thai food is my
favorite. I like vegan food and stews. Really, I just love food.
