My favorite author is probably Haruki Murakami (The Wind Up Bird
Chronicle, Kafka on the Shore, many others)... though my biggest
guilty pleasures include the Harry Potter books and the Hunger
I enjoy quirky comedies--films by Wes Anderson (Rushmore, The Life
Aquatic) and films written by Charlie Kaufman (Human Nature,
Adaptation, The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). I also love
earlier Tim Burton (Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands) and 80's
fantasy (Labyrinth, The Neverending Story).
I don't watch a lot of TV, these days... but my favorite shows from
the past include Veronica Mars, Star Trek the Next Generation,
Lost, and House. Recently I've gotten into Breaking Bad.
As far as music goes, I enjoy everything from alternative
rock/indie to glam, psychedelic, hip hop, and calypso. My favorite
artist is David Bowie.
Food-wise, I love just about everything. Especially love Mexican,
Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Italian and Caribbean/South American.
