Books, I'm into short fiction. Aside from being able to consume
more content in the same time it takes to read a novel, I enjoy the
distinct opportunities the format presents. The author only has a
short time to get across the point, so every single word choice
matters. I'm trying to get back into novels, and just recently
started Murakami's 1Q84. Ask me how it's going.
Movies, I'm all over the place. I can go from intelligent to turn
your brain off and look at the pretty colors. I love the classics.
Directors don't know how to use suspense these days. I have a soft
spot in my heart for anything Western. Classic to Spaghetti. Also,
I've yet to ever find a horror movie that has ever scared me.
Apparently I have no soul or something.
TV, my top five in almost no particular order: The Walking Dead,
Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Firefly, and Sons of Anarchy.
Music, I know this will sound incredibly pretentious, but it's
probably stuff you haven't even heard of. Honestly, half of it is
stuff I haven't even heard of. Bandcamp.com is my new favorite
thing. I greatly prefer the unsigned band who puts their own music
out there just for everyone to hear over an overproduced,
autotuned, precise song. I'll take rough edges and creativity every
day. Current favorite band: Modern Life is War. Fever Hunting is
just so good.
There's also some classics that I'll probably never stop listening
to like Alexisonfire, Comeback Kid, Crime in Stereo, Have Heart,
Hot Water Music, Lifetime, mewithoutyou, Modern Life is War, New
Found Glory, Poison the Well, Shai Hulud, and Shook Ones. You get
so many extra cool points if you know over half of these
I like food. I'm not picky. Actually, I take that back, as I have
been disproven recently. I'm not a big fan of Mexican or seafood
that didn't have a shell at some point in its life. Also, pickles.
