When I have time to read for pleasure, I tend to stick to science
fiction/post-apocalyptic/dystopian and new weird genres.
Theory stuff: post-structuralism, deconstruction, discourse
analysis, Foucault, Butler, Bataille, Baudrillard, sexuality and
desire, performance, and sex work.
I generally like my movies fucked-up, gorgeous, violent or some
combination of all three. I love horror movies. I also enjoy a lot
of 80's action films because they hold a special place in my
childhood. And I'm a sucker for a good love story. Some directors I
love include Park-Chan Wook, Wong Kar-Wai, and Wes Anderson.

I will listen to just about anything once. I haven't met a genre of
music I didn't like. I dig a lot of angry ladies, depressing men,
crazy types who lock[ed] themselves in cabins, and dissonance. And
hip-hop. I fucking love hip-hop.

as there's no cilantro. That shit tastes like soap.
