I like lists...
books: most writing by David Foster Wallace, Joan Didion, Grapes of
Wrath by John Steinbeck, and White Teeth by Zadie Smith. I would
like to like Thomas Pynchon more than I do.
Movies: there are a lot... documentaries (Last train home, Thin
Blue Line, Under African Skies...), foreign films (Max Manus, I've
Loved You So Long), comedies (Get Him to the Greek, Bridesmaids)
cheeseball romantic comedies, etc.
TV: Can we please talk about Game of Thrones? Season 3:
disappointment or majorly thrilling?
Music: I listen to a lot of music... Pretty much rock and indie
rock (the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Grizzly Bear,
Deerhunter, Beach House, etc etc etc...) I also really like jazz.
Miles Davis and Thelonius Monk are two of my favourites. Songza has
helped me get out of my rut, it's great to hear artists and genres
I'm not totally familiar with like Desmond Dekker, 90s hip hop, or
I am pretty much always listening to either music, CBC radio,
Democracy Now! or podcasts like Here's The Thing or Getting
Food: I love comfort food... fried chicken, macaroni and cheese.
They are not so guilty pleasures. I don't know where I'd be without
the Lakeview Lunch and late night pizza. I also love Mexican (al
pastor tacos from El Trompo, oh man!), Middle Eastern, sushi
I used to be a vegetarian and at times I've lost the way with beans
and tofu. If you have any good vegetarian recipes send them my way.
I want more legumes in my life!
Favourite snacks: cucumbers, chocolate, popcorn and peanut
