Noam Chomsky is at the top of my bookshelf. And Franz Kafka!
Metamorphosis pales in comparison to his novels, you've gotta read
The Trial for a real heavy dose of existence. Pedagogy of the
Oppressed, everything Douglas Adams, Calvin and Hobbes, Animorphs,
Watership Down, The Giving Tree, A Wrinkle in Time, The Little
Prince, Dracula, Skippy Dies, The Book Thief, Holes, Stargirl,
Amusing Ourselves to Death, A Brief History of Time, and The Simon
and Schuster Encyclopedia of Dinosaurs and Prehistoric Creatures...
I don't like listing favorite books because there's soooo many more
books out there that I will probably love more than the ones I've
read before, thousands of titles yet to be discovered, so why
should I think these are my favorite?
There's too many movies I haven't seen, I'm quite deprived.
Anyways, I've enjoyed Harold and Maude, Wes Anderson's works, Love
Actually, Brothers Quay films are über trippy, Safety Not
Guaranteed, Dragon Heart, August Rush, Pan's Labyrinth, Kinsey, The
Princess Bride, Good Will Hunting, Fight Club, Short Bus (I *need*
to find someone else who's seen this), Almost Famous, and way more
that I'm forgetting. I gushed over Toy Story 3 -- I cried several
times. Lately I'm more into indie flicks.
Bill Nye the Science Guy. Ok, I need to admit I don't really watch
TV, I instead waste away my life on reddit. I hate it.
I love all kinds of music yet it doesn't mean as much to me as it
does for most other people: I prefer silence more often than not. I
can't stand listening to the same genre over and over again -- it's
gotta switch from classical to indie to celtic to punk to a
cappella to heavy metal to ska to acoustic to the most avant-garde
sounds you can think of. Lately I've been listening to a lot of The
Jezabels, Amanda Palmer, and Björk. I love live music, even if
they're shitty musicians -- it's the people that matter.
Parsnips, pecans, persimmons, and anything pumpkin flavored
particularly appease my palate. Food I don't like doesn't exist.
Given the opportunity to try something new I will seize it, even if
it's svið (sheep's head, an Icelandic delicacy).
