Some authors I like: Barbara Kingsolver, Daniel Pinkwater,
Christopher Moore, Roald Dahl, Francesca Lia Block, Jasper
I read a lot of trashy light novels, silly and weird books. I also
enjoy children's and young adult. Magical, fantasy, scary, or
spooky supernatural books are fun. Lately I'm reading a lot about
different spiritual practices. And I have tons of gardening books,
and books on sexuality, relationships, gender, feminism, body
Movies: Mostly quirky, offbeat, artsy, indie stuff, and I love
musicals. Also visually interesting stuff. (I'm a sucker for movies
that are all trippy and surreal looking.) Some movies I like:
Across the Universe, Amelie, American Beauty, Edward Scissorhands,
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Garden State, Ghost World,
Idiocracy, Into the Wild, John Dies at the End, Little Miss
Sunshine, Little Shop of Horrors, Moulin Rouge, Rent, Requiem for a
Dream, Shortbus, Thumbsucker, Tron (the original), What Dreams May
TV shows: I've never gotten into watching much TV, and I have not
actually had a TV in years. I do watch shows on my laptop from time
to time. I like True Blood, Lost, Queer as Folk, Buffy.
(However if we hook up and you're more into TV than I am, you are
allowed to sit me down and force me to watch. I really haven't seen
enough TV! Same goes for movies! If you're a big movie buff you're
going to want to force feed me a stream of movies.)
I have a broad interest in music. I love finding new bands and new
kinds of music to listen to. One of my favorite things to do is
going out to see pretty much any kind of live music. I have some
musical background in playing trombone, a little piano, and
singing. I've spent many nights dancing around wildly to cool local
bands I'd never heard of before.
Some faves: they might be giants, ben folds, cake, daft punk, belle
and sebastian, beatles, squirrel nut zippers, bjork, bowie, planet
smashers, rasputina, indie, broadway, jazz, ska, reggae, jambands,
electronic, pink floyd, stereolab, dresden dolls, of montreal, new
pornographers, widespread panic, grateful dead, new monsoon, tori
amos, aquabats, sublime, sufjan stevens, aphex twin, animal
collective, the shins, no doubt, robert earl keen, dixie chicks,
lucinda williams, bluegrass, folk, gypsy... and much more!
I love food. I love fresh garden veggies and I've stopped eating
meat for the most part. I probably eat chicken or fish one or two
meals a week. I'm pretty obsessed with tomatoes, peppers, avocados,
mushrooms, spinach, onions, potatoes, cheese, garlic, sour cream,
olive oil, fresh basil. I like spicy food, indian, thai, sushi,
mexican, pizza. Lately I'm really into "clean" eating, "whole"
foods... not so much the processed foods. I have my preferences,
however, I don't find it useful to be rigid or restrictive about
what I eat. I eat what I crave, what calls to me, what makes me
feel good. I'd love to hook up with some wild vegetarian organic
chef person who would cook me delicious gourmet meals all the time.
