I love to read, and surround myself with books - saving them from
thrift stores and garage sales, then squirreling them away for a
rainy day. Or, devouring them immediately.
A few of my favourites are The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and
Klay by Michel Chabon, Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins, The
Neverending Story by Michael Ende, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles by
Haruki Murakami, and The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. I've
been really interested in science fiction and fantasy lately, as
well as biographies and travel novels about peoples fantastical
journeys and their discoveries along the way.
I've also been reading a lot of non-fiction as of late about
psychology - things like co-dependence, mindfulness, relationships,
etc. I loved Malcom Gladwell's What the Dog Said, as well as The
Brilliant Universe by Brian Greene. I'm also really interested in
books about religion, from kind of a bystanders point of
I'm part of a movie club - ask, if you'd like to know more! As a
result, i end up watching quite a few things i wouldn't necessarily
happen upon of my own free will - which i thoroughly enjoy! I like
everything from gory, cheesy horror to clever, well-written, witty
and/or slapstick corny comedies; dramatic, psychological thrillers
to true crime documentaries and Blue Planet. Some of my well-worn
favourites are Young Frankenstein, A Fish Called Wanda, and Some
Like it Hot - as well as Aliens, Evil Dead (both old and new), and
American Psycho. I'm a fan of Wes Anderson, Stanley Kubrick, and
Joss Whedon - but, show me anything, and i'll be up to enjoy it and
have a discussion about it afterwards.
I don't have cable, as television commercials drive me nuts. I
watched "Spaced" on Netflix in the span of two days, and was
heartbroken to discover it only ran for two seasons - and, had a
similar experience with Freaks and Geeks. Recently i've been
enjoying Hannibal, True Detective, American Horror Story, Louie,
Orange is the New Black, and BoJack Horseman. I will always have a
special place in my heart for Star Trek: The Original Series - but,
i'm slowly learning to love TNG, and had never watched an episode
up until a few months ago. The on screen chemistry between Mulder
and Scully still gives me shivers of anticipation - and, i LIKED
how the ended How I Met Your Mother!
