I like storytelling some wildly personal or challenging things,
which seems to correlate with grit or random-honesty stuff. I
prefer it even in the schlocky, escapist, good-bad, eye-candy
My cheerup movies used to be Tank Girl, Fifth Element, and Hedwig.
I have different kinds of love for the Aliens series, Ghibli stuff,
Real Genius, Princess Bride, Clue, Bound, Rocky Horror, Empire
Records, and another handful or two. If you have a non-trivial
theory why I have a soft spot for movies like Ballistic and
Resident Evil, I like you.
I don't watch TV, I do get series addictions, often on the
story-driven or sci fi side of things - think Torchwood
, the later Stargate
s, Doctor Who
, but also Warehouse 13
and others I'll
remember or admit to later.
I like various anime
and a few jdrama
for the different storytelling and the silliness. Nodame
is awesome, watch it (the
live action if you've a choice).
I often read little, and sometimes five books at once. For the most
part I don't stick to authors. I'm currently working on things like
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and Anais Nin. And the
is relatively accurate. My longest-term squee
is probably for Fiona Apple
, Tori Amos
, K's Choice
(mostly her nineties stuff), am
quite fond of Emilie Autumn, and have quite a few more recent
I seem to have have seasonal cycles through the genres I
Disturbing soft spots include bouncy eighties pop and italo disco,
and I like Aqua beyond its use as torture material.
I like my food spicy - Thai, Indian, Indonesian.
My own cooking is improving slowly, a little more so after I broke
enough blenders to decide not to buy more.
I am omnivorous, but cook and eat almost exclusively vegetarian.
