Ugh, my old version of this was -terrible-. I've grown quite a bit
in the past but I guess some of these are still true?
I've read the collected works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, H.P.
Scott Card, and Neal Stephenson. I'm not entirely sure that I
should be proud of all of those. Neal Stephenson is a terrible
writer. He always has interesting plot lines and neat characters,
but he always fucks it up in the end. Orson Scott Card has stopped
writing for his fans and started writing to propagate his religion.
HP Lovecraft is still fantastic, if not a bit pretentious with all
of his aberrations of the English Literature. But, I think that's
why I still like him.
[UPDATE] I should add to this that I've enjoyed every piece of Neil
Gaiman I've read. I'm enjoying George R.R. Martin's Game of
Thrones. I've enjoyed Terry Pratchett's work quite a bit. Sarah
Vowell and David Sedaris hold special places in my heart.
I guess the thing should be called Favorite Authors, as I tend to
enjoy the styles of authors more than the stories in their
Anything by Wes
, or the Coen Brothers, and
the Apatow crew films.
[UPDATE] Again, this should be Favorite Directors. I'd like to
think I've changed, but the truth is, I haven't. I simply adore
every film by every director on this list. The truth of the matter
is that I like Writer/Directors (much like people like
Singer/Songwriters). I like seeing a film being taken from
inception to fruition all while having a single vision in
I've also really enjoyed every Sidney Lumet Film I've seen (12
Angry Men, Network, Dog Day Afternoon). I can talk about film
forever. I like watching new films, as long as they aren't soul
Oh, I guess I should add anything by Aaron Sorkin on here. I've
seen all of his television shows and all of his movies. I love the
way his characters speak and interact with each other. He's
absolutely one of my favorites.
White Stripes, Wreckless Eric
, Sigur Ros,
Weezer.. This list goes on forever.
[UPDATE] haha wow. ok. yeah, I guess I still like everything on
that list (John Lennon has my heart forever), but really now...
let's take a closer look. White Stripes? Yeah. Jack White is my
boyfriend and I'm super upset I never got to see them live.
Wreckless Eric? I dunno. I guess. I mean.. whatever. Sigur Ros?
Only on the occasional mushroom trip I guess. Weezer? What? No.
Hurley was terrible. Stop trying to be so self important,

Food. Battered & Deep Fried Foods. (do french fries count?

Things I love: Basically every style of Asian cooking. I love
Traditional Mexican food but I'll spring for some Tex-Mex as well.
I also like Baja-style Mexican food. Sandwiches are my first
Oh man, I completely forgot about TV.
MY favorite show of all time is Aaron Sorkin's Sports Night,
followed closely by the first 4 seasons of The West Wing. Justified
is my favorite currently running non-comedy show. For comedies, I
really love Community with Parks and Rec coming up a close second.
I also never miss an episode of Always Sunny. I loved Stella and
I'm currently making my way through Arrested Development.
My secret tv program I watch and hate that I love it is: America's
