I listen to music all the time, but recently I've been listening to
the new albums from Gold Panda, Fuck Buttons, and Deafheaven. More
generally, I'm into punk, indie, and electronic music (though
obviously not strictly limited to those 3 genres).
I'm always reading something. I try to alternate between fiction
and non-fiction. I'm reading "Hell's Angels" by HST right now,
which I'll probably follow with "The Wretched of the Earth". For
nonfiction, my tastes vary: everything from tech/law/culture (e.g.
"Remix") to race/politics (e.g. "The New Jim Crow") to econ/psych
(e.g. "Thinking, Fast and Slow") to journalism/history (e.g. "And
The Band Played On"). Seriously, bookshelves are probably the most
prominent furniture in my apartment. Favorite authors: Salinger,
Kerouac, Klosterman, Diaz, Wolfe (Tom), Kesey, HST, DFW, and
I love Pixar movies, especially Up and Wall-E. I don't know why but
I'm not particularly fond of the Toy Story sequels. Other favorite
movies: La Haine, American History X, Rebel Without a Cause, Igby
Goes Down, Half Nelson, Wristcutters: A Love Story, Brick, The
Wrestler, Entre les Murs (aka The Class), Drive, The Lives of
Oh, and I don't own a TV. I still watch a few things from time to
time, but there are usually other things I'd rather be doing.
As for food, I'm super excited to be back in the States if only for
the peanut butter (although I'll also admit that almond butter is
way better). I do like to cook (and bake) whenever I have time. I
make some mean turkey (or chicken) chili, and I have a serious
weakness for banana bread.
