Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild and Into Thin Air were the books that
got me into hiking. That should probably tell you something, or
nothing. Tough to say. Like anyone else who ever filled out an
online profile and also finished 8th grade, Catch-22 and The Great
Gatsby are two of my favorites.
Crystal Castles, Sleigh Bells, Arcade Fire, AFI, Purity Ring,
Metric, Interpol, Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, Rx Bandits, Weezer,
others. And also pop music because I'm awful and can't deny a beat.
I just can't.
Every time I watch Adaptation, I realize that yes, it is my
favorite movie. But also: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Vertigo, Star Wars,
Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings (for that sweet, sweet nerd cred),
Clerks, Mallrats, Jurassic Park. Atonement, Let the Right One In,
Up in the Air, Once. This is not the full list. You'll have to
trust me on that.
30 Rock, Parks & Rec, Arrested Development, Game of Thrones,
classic Simpsons, Home Movies, Futurama, Sherlock, King of the
Hill, Whose Line, Mad Men even though I hate every character. And
Seinfeld because of course Seinfeld.
If you enjoy Mystery Science Theater 3000, we'll probably get along
great. If not, we still might. There is always a chance.
