Music: I'm a huge nerd for punk. I also like blues, jazz, motown,
hip hop, and classic rock. I like some metal, but I'm more into
grooves and less into "noodle-y" guitar solos. I used to be a music
snob, then I realized that it's a pretentious and lonely thing to
be. I started putting on the radio and just pressing up until I
found music. Turns out I don't hate pop or country like I thought I
did. Turns out I like most things. If we meet, I'd love it if you
made me a mix cd of your favorite songs. I'll never judge your
taste in music, and I'd ask that you do the same for me. That said,
my favorite bands are Shook Ones, Dag Nasty, Cro-Mags, Minor
Threat, Bane, Bikini Kill, Leatherface, My Bloody Valentine, Joy
Division, Funkadelic, Wu Tang Clan, Pharoahe Monch, AC/DC, and The
Stooges. And I have a huge soft spot for Jewel and Mariah
Books: I read a lot, and I spend a lot of time at Smith Family
books. I read mostly fiction, but I'm really interested in reading
things that people recommend, and recently I've been trying to read
a book a week. If spending a Sunday afternoon reading at a coffee
shop seems romantic to you, then I think we'll get along. My
absolute favorite authors are Cormac McCarthy, J.D. Salinger, John
Steinbeck, Dostoyevsky, and Herman Hesse. I guess that means I like
moralists, and that probably makes me sound too serious. I also
love David Sedaris if that helps.
Shows: 30 Rock, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Party Down, The
Office, Freaks and Geeks, Community, The Daily Show, Modern Family,
Bob's Burgers, and Workaholics.
Movies: I love going to the Bijou, and lately I've been trying to
go as often as possible. I like a wide range of movies, but
choosing favorites is hard. If it's gritty, incredibly emotional,
or can make me laugh out loud, chances are I'll like it. Tears get
bonus points. On the other end of the spectrum, I saw Bad Boys II
three times in theaters. Best theater experience ever though was
seeing Taken at a dollar theater. The whole room went wild every
time Liam Neeson punched someone in the neck, which was frequently.
I feel like bad action movies and stoner comedies always brighten
my day. And if you like quoting The Big Lebowski, you get serious
Food: I'm down for whatever. Usually I'll eat Mexican or Italian,
but I'm also quite fond of Thai, Japanese, Mediterranean, or
Southern food. Only thing is, I don't eat meat, but I'm always
happy to eat sides if that's the only option available to me. I
know how to cook well, but I get lazy cooking for one.
