Okay buddy, you might want to skip this section. I'm really gonna
Good stories are dreamy. Novels, biographies, history, social
studies, biology, sometimes astrosciences. I enjoy collecting
cookbooks and hoarding magazines.
Anthony Burgess, Roald Dahl, Hunter S. Thompson, Bret Easton Ellis,
Chuck Palahniuk, Kurt Vonnegut, Carl Sagan, George Orwell, blah
blah blah, essentially anybody who's spent a lot of time stoned in
coffee shops. I'm working on those lil' old George R. R. Martin
stories right now.
Comedies, nerdy nerd things, very good movies, VERY bad movies, or
anything that can be described as "cheesy" and/or "80s."
A few tip-tops: Better Off Dead, They Live, Eternal Sunshine of the
Spotless Mind, The Room. The real list is super long.
(See: John Cusack, Bill Murray, Jack Nicholson, George Clooney,

into stand-up, too! <3 Patton Oswalt, Doug Benson, Mitch
Hedburg, Eugene Mirman, Kumail Nanjiani, Ron Funches.

I sing, and play keyboard, but I'm stupid-shy. Sometimes I hit
stuff with other stuff, but I'm not a drummer. I'm just married to
one. Most of my friends are musicians. No, I probably will not show
you my finished music... But get a few drinks in me and I'll
definitely sing karaoke at you. Let's do it! LET'S DUET!
I'm constantly hunting for good music, but I'm picky. I usually
listen to a lot of indie everything, classic rock, folk, soul,
doo-wop, classic country, glam, new wave, punk, etc. I've always
got a new flavor of the week, so I'm not sure who my "favorite
band" is. My go-to answers are Tom Waits, because I sort of worship
him, and The Clash, because they're The Clash, but that doesn't
really reflect on the rest of my tastes. For example, I really love
this band from Philly called The Teeth (who have now renamed
themselves Purples), Say Hi, Man Man and everything Honus Honus
touches for years now. I like exceptionally eclectic Pandora/Songza
playlists (what up Jock Jamz). I always seem to have Elvis Perkins
on rotation, and Electric Light Orchestra makes me feel like I'm SO
high even if I'm only KIND OF high.
Great songs have great lyrics, and on that note I dig hip hop and
poetry slams. I rarely pay any attention to what or whom is topping
charts, especially in terms of modern commercial
pop/rap/country/r&b, but my musical appetite is
Food food food food. Food. I looooove cooking indulgent, elaborate
meals. I live for all noms, and drinks, from all over the world, in
every way, at all times. I'm an oddly gifted baker, too. I could
reeeally go on about all that, but for now I shall spare you,
