I'm interested in language, empathy, feminist criticism, cooking, politics in various forms, reading all the things, craziness (intentional use of that word), and walking (mostly in cities, not as much in "nature").
As for music, there are too many favourites to name, but recently I've been hung up on The Knife, CocoRosie, Joanna Newsom, The National, Chad VanGaallen, Matthew Ryan, Fleet Foxes. Long time favourites: Yo La Tengo and Sleater-Kinney.
TV - the general consensus is that it's good now, right? Some good shit: Lady Dynamite (literally the best show on TV), Bojack Horseman, Broad City, Fresh Off the Boat, Scandal (I like political shit, and shit where WOC call the shots),
Podcasts - I listen to so many. Faves include Code Switch, The New Yorker Fiction Podcast, Homecoming, Heavyweight, More Perfect, Another Round, London Review of Books Podcast, Sooo Many White Guys. Also, these podcasts have ended, but are still worth listening to: Politically Reactive w W. Kamau Bell & Hari Kondabolu and Colour Code.
Food--yeah, I'm a fan. I particularly like really good vegan pho (there are so many great places in Vancouver), all kinds of noodles, dense salads, and any kind of curry. I've also come late, but with much enthusiasm, to a love of avocados.
More specifically, the dynamics of privilege, power, and agency.
Right now I'm most interested in casual dating, although I may be open to it leading to something more serious with the right person(s).
By the way, I would think this would go without saying, but apparently it doesn't. I'm not going to respond to two word, or even one-line messages (unless that one line is super witty and actually says something). Essentially, if your message doesn't give any indication that you actually sent it to me, rather than every woman under 35 on the site, I won't be responding.
