Books: The Time Machine, Animal Farm, 1984, The Captains and The
Kings, Abarat, A Tale of Two Cities, Cyrano de Bergerac, The Wheel
of Time, Young Wizards.
I enjoy reading trashy children stories, fables, fantasy and snoody
Movies: Casablanca, Goodnight & Goodluck, The Red Violin,
Perfume: Story of a Killer, The Secret of NIMH, Dr. Strangelove,
The Dark Crystal, Six String Samurai, Amelie, The Labyrinth,
Moonrise Kingdom. Every muppet movie in existence. BFG.
I enjoy really strange, quirky, culty movies as much as cinema
classics. I don't really dig car movies.
Music: The Beatles, Andrew Jackson Jihad, Highwaymen, Pete Seeger,
Al Jolson, Caravan Palace.
I listen to everything. I'm unabashedly in love with the music of
the 20's and 30's though. I spent half of my day singing folk
music. If you don't like Ray Charles, get the hell out right
Telly: Animaniacs, The Storyteller, Dirty Jobs. Bizarre Foods.
Black Adder and Monty Python's flying circus. I enjoy Criminal
Minds and Avatar. Sesame Street is a big deal, as is the
Food: Chicken Pot Pie, orange glaze cake, carrots and matcha.
Shows: Avenue Q, Rocky Horror, King Lear, Godspell, Jesus Christ
Superstar, Little Shop of Horrors, Shoggoth.
I dig musicals. Life needs spontaneous song and dance numbers. Also
more representations of Jesus with a superman shirt and a blonde
Poets: Keats, Hughes, and Kipling.
These three are what I consider quintessentially romantic,
American, and masculine respectively.
