In no particular order...
Books: A Confederacy of Dunces, American Psycho (I don't
like any of the violence, racism and misogyny in the book, just the
social satire scenes. So basically, half of the book goes on this
list, and the other half I can leave.), We3 (graphic novels count),
Island of the Sequined Love Nun, The Stupidest Angel, The Princess
Bride, and I'm certainly forgetting a bunch. For nonfiction, I
enjoy Noam Chomsky and The New Jim Crow. Lost my copy of A People's
History of the United States, so I'm stuck in limbo with
I also forgot to mention that I love Harry Potter, Watchmen, got
really into the New 52 Batwoman (I accidentally dropped it when I
moved to New York, though), and I'll add to this when I remember
more. I'm just appalled at myself for forgetting those two. Oh, and
I thoroughly enjoyed the Curse Workers series and the Hunger Games.
I gobbled them up pretty quickly.
Currently reading: The Life on Mars novelizations. HAHAHA,
TALK ABOUT GEEKY.
I'm also forever trying to read Ulysses. But I keep getting
interrupted by other books and have to start over again. Ulysses is
my white whale. I will conquer it one day.
Movies: Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Labyrinth, Aliens, Stand
By Me, Star Wars, Dellamorte Dellamore/Cemetery Man, 28 Days Later,
Revengers Tragedy, (500) Days of Summer, Inception, anything with
muppets, 21 Jump Street, Looper, Hot Fuzz, Princess Bride,
Zombieland. I also love love love Street Fighter and GI Joe: Rise
of Cobra and other universally panned movies.
Music: Frank Zappa, She & Him, Rilo Kiley, The
Decemberists, The Pogues, Jonathan Coulton, Jasiri X, Asylum Street
Spankers, Regurgitator, Social Distortion, Bob Dylan, DAVID BOWIE
(how could I forget him?).
Currently stuck in my head: Zomby Woof by Frank Zappa.
TEEVEE: Parks and Recreation, Community, New Girl, Game of
Thrones, Life on Mars, Doctor Who, The Wire, Misfits, Luther,
Deadwood, Curb Your Enthusiasm, True Blood, Orange is the New Black
(I consumed it in days), Once Upon a Time. I've recently started
marathoning My Cat From Hell, thanks Netflix. And you can add
American Horror Story: Asylum to that marathoning list. I really
liked American Horror Story: Coven, despite some storytelling
flaws, in large part due to its focus on women.
Food: Korean, because I'm biased towards my people. Also
sushi. And Tex-Mex.
