Geez- there's quite a lot that I like, and to sum it up: if it is
funny and/or it makes me feel good and/or it is far out/strange
and/or it looks pretty/is visually stimulating- chances are I would
like it. But some specifics: Twin Peaks (OMG YES), Venture
Brothers, Columbo, King of the Hill, Daily Show, House of Cards,
Mad Men, Archer, Metalocalypse, Mighty Boosh, Walking Dead,
Breaking Bad, Murder She Wrote, Golden Girls, South Park, and many
more that I am forgetting at the moment...
Love horror films (looking to expand my horror repertoire!),
prettymuch anything by Quentin Tarantino, anything by Wes Anderson
(yes please all day everyday), anything by the Cohen Brothers (Big
Lebowski = one of my fave movies of all time), anything by Guy
Ritchie, old school Disney (I have a soft spot despite the sexist
portrayal of the female characters), cheesy 80's movies, Clueless
(don't judge me), documentaries about almost anything (culture,
history, music, religion, art, food, geography, etc etc), and
again, MANY more that I haven't listed here.
Hmmm, well I am currently reading the collection of Chuck
Klosterman, whom I had ignored in the past for no other reason than
laziness, but have now come to adore. I find his work to develop
and express in depth the fleeting thoughts we usually ponder for a
second then immediately move on in the only way our ADD society
can. I am also an avid fan of of anything Sedaris, Robbins,
Vonnegut, Heinlein, Palahniuk, and any narrative non-fiction. I
especially LOVE foodie memoirs: anything by Ruth Reichl is at the
top of my list.
I grew up on Classic Rock, so there will ALWAYS exist a huge soft
spot for Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Paul Simon, and Creedence,
amongst others. Currently my Pandora work stations incorporate a
mix of trip-hop, elecronica lounge, chill feel-good beats, and
hyped up vocals with dancy rhythms (Morcheeba, Supreme Beings of
Leisure, Ladytron, Massive Attack, Portishead, Sneaker Pimps, CSS,
Bitter:Sweet, Roisin Murphy, Moloko, Daft Punk, etc etc). On any
given nice Sunday, I prefer to live it up with some classy jazz
brunch tunes, a la some Ella, Frank, and Louis.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Thai, Vietnamese, Indian and Ethiopian cuisine.
And cheese. And chocolate. And kale. And biscuits. And sushi. And
soft pretzels. Mmmm.
Actually, I enjoy pretty much all food, and will try a new genre
Basically, I love food. I am even on a "team" called Team Food. You
should ask me about it if you are curious (not that it's a
complicated concept). It is NOT a competitive eating team, but
rather a group of good people with good tastes that like to share
