Help your potential matches find common interests.
A (relatively) short sampling of each:
a) High Fidelity, Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bell Jar, House
of Leaves, On the Road, The Little Prince, Alice in Wonderland, The
Zombie Survival Guide, Harry Potter, most things by Neil Gaiman and
b) Donnie Darko, Trainspotting, Serenity, The Evil Dead Trilogy,
Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, 28 Days Later, Amelie, The Godfather, The
Nightmare Before Christmas, High Fidelity, X2, Royal Tenenbaums,
c) I seriously like almost everything, musically. My tastes range
from pretty obscure (trance, beach music, Chapel Hill indie bands)
to utterly mainstream (classic rock, modern "rock", hip hop). I
guess a smattering of my favorite artists would include: Foo
Fighters, Smashing Pumpkins, Death Cab, the Arcade Fire, Led
Zeppelin, Outkast, Nina Simone, the Rat Pack, Oingo Boingo, Tori
Amos, Daft Punk, the Killers, Pink Floyd, Nine Inch Nails, the
National, Stars, the New Pornographers, Christina Aguilera,
Stellastarr....anyway, you get the picture...
d) Creme brulee and sushi. I would probably enjoy creme brulee
sushi if someone invented it.
ALSO, I just got introduced to the concept of lavender-flavored
milk chocolate, which may possibly be the most fantastic thing on
the face of the Earth. Damn the British for hogging it all! Damn
