I'm kind of a media nut, hopefully this is a good cross-section of
what I like. I always immediately forget everything I have ever
liked whenever someone asks me to list my favorite anything, so
these are kind of a work in progress.
Books: American Gods, Sunshine, Devil in the White City, East of
Eden, Lolita, Good Omens, Othello, The Great Gatsby, Oryx and
Crake, Sandman, The Fault in Our Stars. I like literary fiction
with a bit of a surreal/speculative edge, a bit of urban fantasy,
nonfiction about cool stuff, and even a little bit of theory.
Movies: The Fall, Clue, Let the Right One In, Hot Fuzz, Lord of the
Rings, The Princess Bride, Moulin Rouge, Beauty and the Beast,
Inception, Silence of the Lambs, Avengers, Warrior, Spirited Away,
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Shows: Hannibal, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sherlock, Lost, Frasier,
Firefly, Arrested Development, Venture Bros, Slings & Arrows,
Parks and Recreation
Music: Ludo, Fitz and the Tantrums, The Fratellis, Vampire Weekend,
American Authors, showtunes, Regina Spektor. I usually listen to
102.1 in the car, but I make crazy mixes with pop, rock,
Food: Fried rice, ribeyes, potatoes, cherries, peanut M&Ms, raw
sugar snap peas, spaghetti. I don't really like spicy food, but I
love to cook and I'm willing to try just about anything once.
