Deal-breakers: smoking, hunting, cat allergies, religious devotion, valuing my body over my mind (not to look like a dualist, but it's a real paradigm in our culture).
I love good movies based on good books. I love Star Wars and Mirrormask and Marie Antoinette and 80s comedies like Heathers and Repo Man. I also love musicals, British comedies, and 50s B movies. And Tarantino.
TV: Joss Whedon (especially Buffy), Doctor Who, Torchwood, 30 Rock, Daily Show & Colbert Report, and of course Python and Blackadder. Currently watching The Walking Dead and Black Books. And obviously I like Sherlock and Downton Abbey. Addendum: new obsession: Game of Thrones.
Music: Tom Waits, Tori Amos, Rasputina, Amanda Palmer, Emilie Autumn, Jesca Hoop, Kate Bush, St. Vincent, The Magnetic Fields, Jay-Z, Kate Nash, Bitter Ruin, Buke & Gase, and other artists that use big words and dissonance. And, of course, Eagles, Styx, Paul Simon, Zappa, Utopia. I also love musical theatre, especially Sondheim.
Food: anything made well. I love Indian, Thai, Mexican, Chinese, Italian. Any pasta dish with browned butter and sage. I'm a vegetarian, but not so big on the salads. Carbs are my thing.
Tl;dr: I like lots of cool things and once I start talking about them I can't stop.
Yes, I know that's seven. I'm a hobbit.
1. Give my cat the ability to speak and understand English
2. Make my cat young and healthy forever so he can be my life companion
3. Never run out of wine and cheese money
