Disrupting the MAN's System.
Running around barefoot.
Sneaking peeks at the cute boys.
Squeezing through small openings in fences.
"Your eyes look like the waters near my hometown in Puerto Rico."
Oh, and I also get "the Judi Dench" a lot: "Wow, you have amazing bone structure!"
Satan disguised as a Jack Russell terrier tricked me into liking books; here are just a few:
Brave New World, 1984, Animal Farm, A Brief History of Time, Guns, Germs & Steel, Freakonomics
Novellas and Short Stories:
There Will Come Soft Rains (Bradbury), Metamorphosis (Kafka), Anthem (Rand) (and no, I'm not one of those Rand-heads), anything by Poe (actually, I prefer his comedy and sci-fi over his horror), anything by Borges
What I grew up on:
The Giving Tree, My Teacher is an Alien series, A Home for Jesse, anything by Chris Van Allsburg, especially: Just a Dream, Ben’s Dream, Two Bad Ants, The Mysteries of Harris Burdick
The venerable New York Slimes, Warshington Roast, TechMunch, Hacker Snooze, Unwired, Vise, Farts Technica, the Wall Street Gurgle, the BBC (which I can only assume stands for . . . . ), Gloomberg, the Puffington Ghost, the Sludge Report, the Village Noise (before it sucked), all those fun British rags like the BB-err, I mean Guardian, all those fun Putin's home movies like RT. Oooohh, and what about that radical-left stuff like Ad Thrusters, or that radical-right stuff like AmWay? And graffiti on the subway told me to like Info-"Black Helicopters!"-Wars.
AI, 2001 Space Odyssey, Akira, Midnight Cowboy, A Clockwork Orange, The Science of Sleep, Metropolis (anime), Taxi Driver, Roshomon, Koyaanisqatsi, Baraka, Chronos, Garçon stupide, Donnie Darko, Paranoid Park, Brazil, Ed Wood, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Dr. Strangelove, Kids, Les 400 coups, Barbarella, Fight Club, Batteries Not Included, Blade Runner, Run Lola Run, Groundhog Day, Forest Gump, Apollo 13
Breaking Bad, House of Cards, Entourage, How to Make It in America, South Park, Tim & Eric, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Documentaries/PBS, C-SPAN Book TV, Jeopardy & Cash Cab (both of which I will eviscerate you at)
I like Mad Men but its preachiness is a little too transparent. "Ooohhhh, look how far we've advanced from that awful time!" Well, they put men on the moon, and now we can't do that.
If it were revealed to me that Girls is secretly written by a misogynistic, middle-aged man, I would consider it the most brilliantly subversive political satire in the history of television.
electronic: techno, hard anything: hardstyle, hard house, hard dance, fidget, schranz; metal: death metal, black metal; other: classic rock, 80’s new wave, indie rock, punk rock, Philip Glass, Prokoviev, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, BoC, and anything from any genre that catches my fancy, and even Lady Gaga
