Books: Its embarrassing how little I read for
pleasure, but I do enjoy it when I do. My favorites are Catcher In
The Rye (helped me through a difficult place in life), Guns Germs
& Steel (would erase most racism if it were required reading in
high school), and Fight Club (cliche I know).
Movies: I love films more than most anything but
also have a bad tendency to fall asleep watching them. Movies I can
watch over and over again are: The Big Lebowski, Adaptation, As
Good As It Gets, Bridge over the River Kwai, The Shawshank
Redemption, Groundhog Day.
TV Shows: I watch TV but not on TV. I have less
and less tolerance for commercials all the time. I am a sucker for
the usual: Breaking Bad, Louie, The Venture Bros, Shameless, Game
of Thrones, South Park, Arrested Development, Archer, anything with
Anthony Bourdain, Modern Family, Seinfeld, News Radio, and pretty
much any sketch show ever made. I have an absolute disdain for
'Reality' TV, so if you like it, I'll probably ruin it for
Music: this used to be my passion in life, but as
I've gotten older, it has been less my focus than film. I don't
know what it is, but I have a hard time getting passionate about a
good song or group than I was when I was just enterting my
twenties. Lately I've been listening to a lot of Haim, CHVRCHES,
Sloan (old), Soft Cell, and Alt-J.
Food: The one thing that I don't like is almonds.
I'm trying to work on that, but I just can't stand the little
things. Its frustrating. I love to eat out and cook for others, but
when it comes to feeding myself, I usually take the shortest route
to get food into my mouth. That usually means pasta or a sandwich.
I was a vegetarian for 7 years but have been back on the meat wagon
for almost as long now. I still eat veggie when it appeals to me.
