Some favorite films randomly off the top of my head: Blade Runner
Watchmen, Up in the Air, Snatch, Pirate Radio (mostly for the
music), American Beauty, The Life Aquatic, The Salton Sea (Jesus
Christ, Terence Blanchard's version of "Saeta"... chills), Four
Rooms, Coffee and Cigarettes, Brick, The Machinist, THX 1138, The
Jacket, Thank You For Smoking, Visioneers, and the new Batman
I enjoy stunning visuals (lighting geekery carries over from
photogaphy), graphic violence, strong soundtracks, and being
tripped the fuck out. I like comedy, but it tends to be dark, and
it tends to be "movie about something else that happens to be
funny" rather than "movie that solely exists to be funny".
I like music. I can come up with at least one example of something
I like in every genre. Although lately it's been an awful lot of
, and jazz.
Lately I've been reconnecting with my roots and listening to
I'm fond of later Beatles
albums, the Rolling Stones
classic American rock. Radiohead
, The Clash, Louis Armstrong
always have a place in my playlist. Cannot listen to a Ludacris
song without moving my ass. Otis Redding
makes me cry every
My friends have been attempting to teach me about electronica. So
far they have been unsuccessful, other than determining that I like
the ones that are remixes of songs I know, and that I cannot abide
psytrance. We shall see if I turn into a raver kid yet.
I like food. I consider myself a pretty good cook, though my baking
skills are not spectacular. Some of my favorite foods are hummus,
fried chicken, Reuben sandwiches, tomato soup, meatloaf, steak
(medium rare or GTFO), and Pad Thai. A few of my favorite Atlanta
restaurants are Woodfire Grill, The Earl, Eclipse di Luna, TaKorea,
Six Feet Under, Little Bangkok, Lee's Bakery, and Miller Union.
