my music taste is about as together as an exploding star. i am a
sucker for anything that is just as good read out like a poem as it
is in a song, like anything produced by the shins, iron & wine
or andrew mcmahon (something corporate/jack's mannequin). i like
early 2000s pop punk (taking back sunday, finch, thursday) and most
dubstep (avicii, bassnectar, mat the alien, adventure club) and
pretty much any folk music that comes my way. if i can dance to it,
i probably love it, and i will dance to just about anything with a
beat (i am an excellent dancer, for the record). i like to sing
along to adele, bonnie raitt, and june carter cash, or any singers
with raspy, soulful voices.
i read too much to even name a favourite in any genre because
everything i like serves a different purpose. i'm super into book
trades so let me know if there is something you think i should
read! by this i mean just assume i have never read your favourite
book(s) and tell me to read them. i will read pretty much
that being said, i have found a particular fondness for
authors/poets like barbara kingsolver, anne sexton, pablo neruda,
don mckay, melanie siebert, sylvia plath, virginia woolf, douglas
coupland, eden robinson, neil gaiman, evelyn lau, annette lapointe,
francesca lia block, ivan coyote, shane koyczan, t.s. eliot, e.e.
cummings, etc etc etc.
i pretty much only watch netflix when my brain is tired and to be
honest, talking about television/movies is one of my least
food is probably one of the central focuses of my life. the
relationship between women, family, food and culture is something
that fascinates me. the way food can bring people together, can
heal the heart, warm us even in the frigid cold of grief, is
something that inspires most of my cooking. i make up a lot of my
own recipes based on what feels good on any given day. i'm partial
to things like avocado, garden tomatoes, fresh caught salmon,
spinach salads, fig balsamic vinegar, asparagus, risotto of many
different kinds, mushrooms, kale, dried and fresh fruit of all
kinds, bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant, ginger, any combination of
ingredients prepared with love and care. and deep fried pickles,
because deep. fried. pickles. actually i also just really love
pickles, but i eat them by themselves out of the jar.
