Movies: I really love almost all movies by Woody Allen, Quentin Tarantino, Pedro Almodovar, Coen Brothers, Lars von Trier, and Pixar. I know Ghost World, Paris is Burning, Hedwig, and Mean Girls more or less by heart. And when I don't know what else to watch I usually default to horror.
TV: Breaking Bad, Girls, Mad Men, Drag Race, Parks and Rec. My TV Canon includes Party Down, Clone High, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, West Wing, Buffy, Angel, and The Wire.
Music: My music tastes are broad enough to alienate most everyone at some time. Coming up, some of the most important bands/artist to me were: NIN, Belle and Sebastian, Bjork, Radiohead, Pavement, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Le Tigre, Dolly Parton, Missy Elliott, Magnetic Fields, Mountain Goats, Jonathan Richman, Kanye West, Jay Z, and LCD Soundsystem. The band I'm currently least likely to skip if it comes up on shuffle is Future Islands. My favorite songs of last year were by Kendrick Lamar, Usher, The Weeknd, Frank Ocean, and Solange. It was a good year for R&B, and it inspired me to deepen my knowledge of the history of slow jams, which I'm currently working on.
Food: If I had to eat one dish for the rest of my life it would probably be panang curry. I really love pasta and soup in all their forms, enough that I semi-regularly have them for breakfast.
Anyway, here are six things I practically consider friends, things which, if they never existed, I would (need become much more creative and talented and then) write science fiction imagining their existence:
1. Coffee (Here you thought from that opening I was gonna be all original and stuff. Gotcha! But really, everyone is right about this. Something delicious that makes you feel awesome that you're allowed -- often encouraged! -- to drink at your job? It must be number one.)
2. The breeze (I think Wordsworth wrote this just for me: "Oh, there is blessing in this gentle breeze,/That blows from the green fields and from the clouds/And from the sky; it beats against my cheek,/And seems half conscious of the joy it gives.")
3. The opening minute or so of "Have You Seen Her" by The Chi-Lites (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVYxKRXDT2I -- This is sort of a stand in for cool music, or even just cool stuff, in general. And, really, the whole song is perfect, not just the beginning. But for me that opening guitar line is the definition of cool, and exciting every time I hear it. Also I don't know why songs stopped having narration.)
5. Wikipedia (I mean how else would I know about http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostitution_among_animals?)
6. Mason jars (You can store stuff in them! You can blend stuff in them, a la http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/use-a-mason-jar-as-a-mini-blen-114977! You can use them to drink a big, refreshing glass of ice water! You can preserve stuff in them! You can put cute shit in them and use them decoratively! I mean I've never even done those last two! But they look sweet and rustic! They are tough and hard to break even if you have my goat-like fine motor skills! There is literally nothing not to love!)
1. My friends and family, because I love them;
2. Foods, because I love them;
3. Money, unfortunately;
4. Dudes, for the most part unfortunately (I'm sure you're cool, though);
6. Affirmation, specifically how to do it, toward as much as possible (because a lot of stuff and people are pretty alright), and how to live without needing it, especially from dudes (callback!);
7. Criticism, specifically how to give it, especially as a teacher, and how to take it, especially as a student;
8. Eve Sedgwick, specifically how she was right about most everything, how I can model her acuity and big-heartedness, and how it sucks she died;
9. J-J Rousseau (He's not exactly what I'd like to spend a first date talking about, but I do spend most of my time thinking him, at the moment, and about stuff like that, in general, so if that seems super boring or super bullshit-y, we might not be a good match!)
10. "Is 'activity partners' a sex thing?"
