I love a wide range of things. These are going to be some pretty
long lists so feel free to browse :-)
Some favorite movies are: the Usual Suspects, Eternal Sunshine of a
Spotless Mind, 500 days of Summer, Big Lebowski, Star Wars, Batman
movies, X-Men movies, Royal Tenenbaums, Snatch, Serenity, Shawshank
Redemption, Joe vs. the Volcano, Back to the Future trilogy, Garden
State, Moonrise Kingdom, I (heart) Huckabees, The Best Exotic
Marigold Hotel, Ghost Busters, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,
Fight Club, the Brat Pack movies(Breakfast Club, Weird Science, 16
Candles, etc.) pretty much anything by Wes Anderson (there's
something very real and comforting about them) and probably a bunch
more I could watch hundreds of times.
Music too. I grew up on a mix of country and everything else. My
grandpa liked big bands from the 20's so I like those and classical
as well. My mom and grandmother got me liking country. I love a lot
of 80's stuff and pretty much everything from the 50's through
70's. Some of my favorites are: the Beatles of course, Sense Fail,
Bloc Party, Interpol, Weezer, James Taylor and Elton John. Kate
Nash and Lily Allen are my new favorites that I seem to listen to
the most lately. I listen to a lot of one hit wonders or mixes with
only a few songs by each band as well because I don't like the
monotony of one voice constantly or the same 14 songs droning over
and over. I listen to Mogwai and Explosions in the Sky probably the
most because I can get away with non-lyrical songs at work.
I don't really watch a ton of TV. Mostly because I hate reality TV.
I have a thing for tattoos though so I do watch some of the shows
about tattoos. I loved Arrested Development, Better Off Ted and Six
Feet Under but when I stay home sick I tend to watch hours of
various versions of NCIS. More recently I've become addicted to
Doctor Who! I try to not love shows until they're not new anymore
in case they get cancelled so I tend to only watch really old shows
or already cancelled things when I do watch TV. I was watching
Chuck but I stopped before the last season ended because it was
disappointing me. Now I'm on a crime show kick. I think I need the
brain stimulation, but it makes me a little sad that I watch shows
about murder when I get home to unwind. I also watch reruns of
Numb3rs on netflixs. School makes me crave televisions to help my
brain decompress. For laughs I go for random episodes of World's
Dumbest.. I also love to watch Top Gear(British of course!)
My favorite books are: American Gods, A Midsummer Night's Dream,
the Giver, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, High Fidelity and the
Stephanie Plum series. I actually love to read but since I got a
job working with books I just can't seem to read any. School keeps
me too busy. I take them home or carry them around with me for a
few weeks but never actually open them. If you have any
recommendations please share.
Douglas Adams once said that it is a mistake to think that most
problems can be solved using only potatoes. I tend to disagree. I'm
a huge fan of most forms of potatoes and they do make me feel
better. Unfortunately I'm supposed to be on an Anti-Inflammatory
diet and potatoes are an inflammatory food. I do love to cook
though and my niece at least, loves my vegetable soup.
I'm currently reading Smoke and Mirrors by Neil Gaiman, Outlander
by Diana Gabaldon, and You Get So Alone At Times That It Just Makes
Sense by Bukowski, as well as whatever current Stephanie Plum novel
Janet Evanovich has just written.
