music runs the gamut too. indie, electronic, conscious hip hop, folk, funk, bluegrass. i can honestly say if the music's good i'm into most any genre with a few exceptions – shitty new gangsta rap (the old stuff is still awesome), top 40 country, noise (at least the kind with no resolution) and mariachi. yo la tengo will always have a top slot on my list of favorite bands.
i'm mostly into indie movies, but not just "important films" (even though important films have their value). i guess i think about movies like i think about good writing -- capturing an amazing small detail about life or a story or a character can require far more skill than creating some grand gesture. the station agent comes to mind as illustrative of that point. when recently challenged by a friend, i created this list of favorites from off the top of my head: splendor in the grass, american movie, river's edge, party girl, harold and maude, bright star, muriel's wedding, the straight story, almost famous, city of lost children, diner, dancer in the dark, dazed and confused. i also dig showing movies on a screen in my backyard.
i'm pretty much a foodie and like exploring. i have a strong affinity for asian food (thai, korean, vietnamese, indian, burmese, japanese, etc etc), but my tastes run the globe. i mostly eat veggies but also seafood and fish from time-to-time. i don't like the way full-on meat makes me feel and haven't eaten it (on purpose) since i was 20.
gerunds of all sorts
of course, i would be remiss if i didn't acknowledge my addiction to npr and various npr podcasts (this american life, radiolab, the moth, and to a lesser degree the splendid table), caffeine and alone time (i have a deep love of people but i definitely have a need to be by myself from time to time).
i am a huge fan of random encounters that lead to intrigue and hilarity. turning strangers into friends is cool.
