Okay buddy, you might want to skip this section. I'm really gonna
More nonfiction than fiction; especially biographies, history,
social studies, biology, and sometimes astrosciences. I also hoard
magazines and cookbooks.
I'm tingliest for Anthony Burgess, Roald Dahl, Hunter S. Thompson,
Bret Easton Ellis, Chuck Palahniuk, Kurt Vonnegut, Carl Sagan,
George Orwell, blah blah blah, essentially anybody who spends 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, and
anything that can be described as "cheesy" and/or "80s".
A few tops: Better Off Dead, They Live, Eternal Sunshine of the
Spotless Mind, The Room. The real list is pretty long.
(See: John Cusack, Bill Murray, Jack Nicholson, George Clooney,
Most funny things, most British things, most nerdy things. Big into
stand-up, too. Patton Oswalt, Doug Benson, Mitch Hedburg, Eugene
Mirman, Kumail Nanjiani, kjfrhekjskljglgjskfjgkf.
I Netflix/hulu/Amazon/ProjectFreeTV everything, don't have cable TV
and don't do reality TV.
I've always proclaimed my favorite show of all time to be Sifl
& Olly. But I'm also forever in love with Star Trek TNG, Doctor
Who, X-Files, Black Books, Green Wing, The Office (UK), Parks &

Development, Game of Thrones, Sopranos, Dexter, Adventure Time,
Unsolved Mysteries, Workaholics, Psych, Flight of the Conchords,
Community, 30Rock, Elementary, Comedy Bang! Bang!, Justified,
Jeselnik Offensive, Drunk History, Colbert Report, Daily Show, and
I'm a celebrated jukebox DJ.
Most of my friends are musicians. 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. 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, 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. I can't stop listening to Elvis Perkins, a band
from Philly called The Teeth (who have now renamed themselves
Purples), Say Hi, Man Man for years now, and some exceptionally
eclectic Pandora/Songza playlists (what up Jock Jamz). I always
seem to have Spoon on rotation, and I'm forever-enamored with
Electric Light Orchestra, because they make me feel like I'm SO
high even if I'm only KIND OF high.
I'm a sucker for great lyrics. I love hip hop and poetry slams, and
pretty rarely pay attention to what or whom is topping the charts,
especially in terms of modern commercial pop/rap/country/r&b,
but my musical appetite is boundless.
Food food food food. Food. I love cooking indulgent, elaborate
meals. I love all noms, and drinks, from all over the world, in
every way, at all times. I'm an oddly gifted baker even though I
don't have much of a sweet tooth. I could reeeally go on about all
that too, but for now I shall spare you, mortal. Food.
