As far as bands/musicians: Mucca Pazza, Dovekins,
John Drake & The Shakes, Arrah & The Ferns, Lowdown Brass
Band, Ami Saraiya & The Outcome, Steinomite, Ssssnake... (most
of those are my friends' groups)... I'm pretty tolerant to most
music (which, yes, is a totally lame answer). Lately I
either listen to WBEZ or Pandora's "Today's hits" station. (And
let's be honest, the 90s pop station mainly for things like Hootie
& The Blowfish, Third Eye Blind, and Sister Hazel.)
My favorite authors are Vonnegut, Bukowski, and
Dybek. I read a lot: YA, graphic novels, comics, lit fic, spec fic,
short stories... Right now my favorite short story is "The man who
forgot Ray Bradbury" by Neil Gaiman. Also becoming a fan of Brian
K. Vaughan's work.
The two main things that make me want to get cable are Shark Week
and football season. I watch a lot various shows
via Netflix and Hulu... and thanks to my Dad, I'm able to "borrow"
his cable online to keep up with the Bears.
Food just depends on my mood. I enjoy cooking and
wish I had a better kitchen. Recently discovered I like mussels.
I'm more a tea person rather than coffee, but that's mainly because
I don't do caffeine. I also don't drink beer, but do enjoy a good
cider or whiskey/bourbon.
