I'm straight edge and vegetarian, but it's ok if you're not. It's ok if you are too. Either way is ok. If drinking is integral to your personality I'll probably only like you if it makes you fall down a lot because that shit is pretty funny.

looking like hair coming out of a hood.
Music: Converge, Baroness, The Smiths, Joy Division, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Boysetsfire, basically any song that some sad asshole with a synth made in a shitty part of England between like 1978-1988, The Cure, Depeche Mode, the incarnation of emo where everyone just sounded like Jawbreaker, some old straight edge hardcore bands who are probably alcoholics now, Black Sabbath and a lot of the bands who've built careers aping Black Sabbath, The Misfits or anyone who has the gall to cover a Misfits song with a straight face, Sleater-Kinney, Prince, Wu-Tang, mixtape culture. Every year I read all the best of the year lists on Pitchfork to pretend I'm cultured and hip and I usually end up really liking one of them, this year I know it will be the new Grimes record which is just bonkers good.
Movies: Wall-E is my favorite movie by a sizable amount. Basically any movie about the mob. Battle Royale. Danny Boyle, documentaries about the cultural and social impacts of sports, films about sad assholes with synthesizers in England, teenage melodrama, Leon: the Professional, most of the DC animated joints are pretty good, Miyazaki, Boyz n the Hood, Korean crime films, The Princess Bride. Basically if it's intended for children or an ultraviolent action movie there's a pretty good chance I'll like it.
Food: I mostly judge food by how effective it is as a cholula delivery vector.
Things I don't like: Ayn Rand, the song Crazy Train, people who are impolite to service workers, powercycling, sore throats, power metal that isn't Manowar, the phrase "xxx you've never heard of" or basically just clickbait in general, small talk (this isn't just me being dour, I would 100 percent rather not talk than talk about nothing), green olives, most egg-based condiments, pretension, spotty wireless connections, people that aren't very funny (especially if they're unaware.)
Chloraseptic, Halls, naproxen, warm saltwater, hot soup, honey.
The Smiths, Meat is Murder, The Queen is Dead, Strangeways Here We Come, Louder than Bombs, Rank ( I could probably live without Rank but it made six.)
How to avenge imagined slights.
Why some people talk so much.
One time I was a state champion of something reasonably embarrassing.
Or if you play League of Legends and you want to battle.
