I went to school for art, which means that I work in the service industry. I have a 9-5(ish) gig in The Loop. My job not my life-goal, but it is my career, and I do enjoy it, and that is important to me.
(Random women on OkCupid have e-mailed me to tell me that I shouldn't wear make-up. Please understand that I'm not going to reply to those messages. I like my look. It makes me feel like me).
I always have a book in my bag. Here is a sampling of some books I've liked: The Bastard Out of Carolina by Dorothy Allison, Play It As It Lays by Joan Didion, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami, The Stranger by Albert Camus, Tender is The Night by F. Scott Fitzgerald, What We Talk About When We Talk About Love by Raymond Carver, A Scanner Darkly by Phil Dick, Snowcrash by Neal Stephenson. People seem to love or hate David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest. I loved it.
The Sound And The Fury was the best book I've ever read. Can I go on OkCupid and admit that I love Faulkner w/out sounding pretentious? I didn't read him to be pretentious. I read him b/c I really liked his use of words. Faulkner was a genius. Although he'd suck if he was ever on Twitter.
I read non-fiction too. I just finished a book about psychology and neuroscience in relation to humor. It was fascinating.
I'm a big fan of horror. I like thrillers. I enjoy a good drama.
I dislike political documentaries b/c I dislike rhetoric and propaganda, but I love historical docs, like Ken Burns films. I also like whenever Neil deGrasse Tyson says anything.
Deadwood is my favorite show of all time. Boardwalk Empire is great. At bedtime, I pull up a random episode of MST3K from Netflix and I go to sleep while laughing at the show's silliness.
If you talk to me about music, my eyes widen and I start to babble. I won't do that here.
I'm into multiple genres: Post-Punk, Industrial, DeathRock, Minimal, Electropop, Indie Rock, Ambient, Hip Hop, Dream Pop, et cetera. Here are a few of my favorites: Tri Repetae++ (Autechre), Faith (The Cure), III (Crystal Castles), Liquid Swords (GZA), Disco Volante (Mr. Bungle), The End (Nico), Warm Leatherette 7" (The Normal), Tinderbox (Siouxsie And The Banshees), Alice (Tom Waits).
I love going to live shows. Here are some recent highlights: The Presets, Danny Brown, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Savages, Spencer Krug (as Moonface), Mazzy Star, Chris & Cosey, The Knife, Lana Del Ray, Janelle Monáe, Röyksopp / Robyn, Owen Pallett, Rhye, Gazelle Twin, FKA Twigs.
I'm not much of an epicure. But, in the spirit of list-making, here are some foods that I do enjoy eating: tatter tots, burritos, dark chocolate.
To drink, I enjoy a $10 bottle of red wine, b/c I'm fucking posh.
I also like the yellow and orange Starburst, but not the red and pink. If we ever meet in person and we split a package of Starburst, you can have all the gross red and pink ones.
The feel of warm water when I wash my hands.
My cat, Familyyr.
The place between dream and wakefulness.
I was a bit of a club-kid back in the day and my 40-year old bones still enjoy a night of good EDM / techno. The beat goes on...
