I love movies...LOVE them. I love going out to the theater, I love
renting and staying in. I love sharing this experience with others.
I love midnight re-runs. I love midnight first runs. I'm not afraid
to get emotional during a good movie..and sometimes can't help but
get emotional during those terrible ones too : ). I've recently
gone on a kick to revisit some of my favorite movies from the 90's
(Addams Family, Beatlejuice, Ed Wood, Nightmare before Christmas...
why aren't they making movies like these anymore?).
Directors: Tom Tykwer, Coen Brothers, Quentin Tarantino,
Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Wes Anderson, Christopher Nolan, Jim Jarmusch,
Sofia Coppola, Henson, Stanley Kubrick, Hal Ashby (Harold &
Maude is my all time favorite movie) Woody Allen.
TV: While I don't own a television...the best way to watch is on
DVD/internet/netflix! Dr. Who, Eureka, X-Files, Star Trek Twin
Peeks, Heroes, Dr. Who, Stargate SG-1. (Yes I'm aware that Dr. Who
is mentioned three times).
Authors: Neil Gaiman, David Sedaris, Jerri Spinelli, Roald Dahl,
Orson Scott Card, Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk, Maggie Estep
Music: Counting Crows (2006 and earlier), Tom Waits, Tim Minchin,
Radiohead Ani Difranco, Coldplay, Nine Inch Nails, Covenant,
Wolfshiem, David Francey, David Bowie, Pixies, Ditty Bops, Carolina
Chocolate Drops etc. etc. I'm an avid listener of the Moth story
slam, This American life, and Prairie Home Companion, radio lab and
other NPR favorites. ...It's an odd mix.
Food: I love vegan food - I rarely deviate from things that are
vegan and never deviate into meat. I get a lot of questions from
folks who ask how I could give up cheese and milk and the like.
It's pretty easy. I don't tend to push my vegan opinions on other
people. I am open to talking about it though. I wont be offended if
you eat meat, but I have realized that I do prefer that whoever I
end up with in a serious dating capacity to be Vegetarian - with
serious vegan leanings. I've lived in a Vegan house for close to
nine years now and really don't want to give that up.
I love Ethiopian cuisine, Mediterranean, Mexican, and more. All you
have to do is mention Thai food and I'm craving it. Excuse me, I
have to step out and grab some…damn.
