I am more of a non-fiction reader as I love to glean information
about the world and use it.
My three favorite movies are Persepolis
, Inherit the Wind
, and The Room
. The first two
really touch my heart and are genuinely outstanding films, but The
Room has to be seen to be believed and vice versa.
My favorite band is Sleater-Kinney
. However, just as
I tend to like my men, I also love groups with strength and
flamboyance. Brits Muse
and Japanese visual kei innovators
would be examples of my favorites from that category.
Since there is a lack of goth nights in the Triangle I have been on
a kick of ebm
Unconnected but also clad in black I really dig black metal
. It goes
surprisingly well with riot grrrl
. They are both rebellions
against cultural hegemonists often clad in crosses.
I love to eat and cook cuisine from all around the world, and from
all sorts of places that I have traveled to within the United
States (and parts of Canada). I have quite the cookbook
I have a love for American regional cuisine (Think like deep dish
pizza for Chicago and vinegar based BBQ for North
Carolina...perhaps create some vegan friendly versions). I also
have an obsession with doughnuts
and have been looking for a
kiwi doughnut for over a decade (Major bonus points to those who
know the movie reference).
I adore the Chicago Bears
. It usually
surprises people that I like anything sport related.
Can't say I am really much for television. However, I am quite the
hound on YouTube and having a friend of mine record Portlandia
, The Aquabats Super
, and...um....$ale of the Century
you actually remember and enjoy Nightstand with Dick
, you earn some major awesome points.
