Books: Old Man and the Sea, The Things they Carried, Catch-22,
Fahrenheit 451, Slaughterhouse-Five. I don't read as many books as
I probably should, but I'm a big blog/internet news reader, and I'm
able to read Rolling Stone cover to cover before the next one
Music: The Beatles, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Kanye West,
Eminem, Jay-Z, The Killers, The Avett Brothers, Kings of Leon. I'm
hoping to make a duet in my life as beautiful as those made by
Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. I think Pet Sounds might be
better than Sgt. Peppers. The B side to Abby Road is the best
"medley" ever. My Pandora stations are: "I'm Black and I'm Proud"
(classic soul), "Because You Can't Get High at Work" (classic
rock), "A Little Twang" (Bluegrass), "Teenage Angst" (angsty
pop-punk), "I'm Feeling a Little Horn-y" (ska), and "Fucking East
Coast Gangsta Rap" (Disney tunes).
Movies: I watch a lot of movies. My friends always make fun of me
for not having the most exacting standards. Beyond watching
anything I can find, I watch Mean Girls annually, and the whole
Star Wars series biennially. Zombieland has become a favorite of
mine in recent years, and generally I enjoy zombie movies (as well
as all other horrors). Cabin in the Woods might have broken into my
top 10, but it's still a ways behind my all-time favorite: Blazing
TV Shows: My most recent Netflixed series are: Alias, How I Met
Your Mother and Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deadliest Carch.
Lost is one of my favorite series ever. I also recently discovered
that Drew Goddard might be responsible for everything that I like.
He worked with JJ Abrams on Lost and Alias, and with Joss Whedon on
Angel and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer.
Food: My love affair with food is well documented. My dad makes
probably the best Pizza I've ever had. I love Mexican food, almost
independent of its source or shape. I've learned to cook incredibly
well, I love spending time in the kitchen.
