Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I like to read and usually have something going. A few of my
favorite subjects are philosophy, history, nutrition,
nature/wildlife, art, computer animation, architecture, and
photography. I read the New York Times regularly and find that I
enjoy news, and loathe politics.
Music: I like lots of music, but have always centered around
Classical/Baroque (JS Bach, CPE Bach, Mozart, Handel..), Hip-Hop
(Tribe Called Quest, Hieroglyphics, Roots, Jurassic 5..), Punk/Ska
(Citizen Fish, Bad Religion, NOFX, Nomeanso, Operation Ivy),
Classic Rock (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Rolling Stones...), and
Electronic music (love Space Station SOMA, Dubstep, and Breaks).
Rdio subscriber now, and wouldn't go back.
Movies: Love movies, and am always down to go. Recently watched all
of Wes Anderson's films. Beautiful and brilliant. I'm torn between
Moonrise Kingdom and Grand Budapest for my favorite.
Food: I eat a healthy diet. Meat and veg from organic, pasture
raised, local sources whenever possible, and steer clear of dairy
and gluten. Which essentially boils down to the 'paleo' way. I
enjoy cooking and like to do so for others more than for me.
Everyone has their own thing going when it comes to dietary
guidelines, which is great. I like to hear about what works for
people and am always learning about nutrition. I love Mexican,
Indian, Thai, Sushi, Ethiopian, and anything spicy!
Shows: I try and avoid getting hooked on too many shows, because I
will never get anything done. I stream anything that I could ever
wish for with Netflix, Hulu, etc... I like going to comedy clubs
and listening to up and coming talent. I am a Bill Maher fan and
love Eddie Izzard, Monty Python, and the general British edge on
humor. I have been to a few operas and thought it was fun. I was
pretty blown away by Mozart's 'Don Giovanni' that the Portland
Opera performed. I also saw 'Wicked' in San Francisco and thought
it was amazing.
