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 big fan of
Breaking Bad, Louie, The Venture Bros, Shameless, South Park,
Archer, anything with Anthony Bordain, 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 you.
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.
