Help your potential matches find common interests.
(A) Fantasy, science fiction, Humor-driven books, history, crime
thrillers, but really, as with any medium, I seek out whatever I
expect to relate to, such as:
Anything on mythology/paganism/heathenism. I'm so into it that I
might appear to be practicing to some, but it's just an old
interest from when I was far, far younger that never went
Philip K. Dick
Anything about lucid dreaming
Books on art
True crime. Mostly ones about the mob.
(B) Many . Here are just a few examples:
Movies/TV are very different from music for me because I find that
there's still plenty of great material on mainstream TV and even in
Hollywood sometimes(though doubling ticket prices out of nowhere
was uncalled for, so I tend to see films on DVD these days.) You
don't have to dig nearly as deep underground to find good stuff in
these fields as you do in music.
Shows I'm really into include:
Game of Thrones
Freaks and Geeks
An Idiot Abroad
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Orange is the New Black
Trailer Park Boys
Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes saga
Doctor Who in the original run and this one, especially when
Russell T. Davies doesn't write the episode
...and Miami FUCKING Vice. Best show Giancarlo Esposito's ever been
in. Yep. I said it.
Asian Kung-Fu Generation
At The Gates
East River Pipe
The Wedding Present
The Joy Formidable
The Jesus and Mary Chain
Throwing Muses/Kristin Hersh
Sally Shapiro(and tons of classic Italo disco)
(E) I'm pescetarian, and not preachy(or activist, for that matter.)
Not very picky about food, but some's better than others, and I
like most things originating from the Far East or Europe that are
within my dietary restrictions. I chew gum like Rod Serling smoked.
Speaking of food, I also have a strong urge to see Anthony Bourdain
pummeled into humility. That'd take a lot.
