Books-Great Gatsby, Catcher in the Rye, and currently for fun the Sookie Stackhouse (the True Blood) novels. Rock bios are currently one of my favorite things to read, among my favorites are Please Kill Me and Life (the Keith Richards Bio)
Movies-Breakfast at Tiffanys,Amelie, Mulholland Dr and Velvet Goldmine to name a few. I just saw Midnight in Paris and The Artist, and loved both of them! Who's up for seeing Rocky Horror at The Musicbox? I love Audrey Hepburn. The teenager in me still love the movie Clueless. RIP Britney! I love movies, can't believe I am listing this few. I'll have to add more as I think of them!
TV- Boardwalk Empire, True Blood, Treme, Shameless, and NBCs Thursday night line up. I can easily get sucked into a Pawn Stars marathon. Finally starting to binge Breaking Bad, and wow why did I wait so long?! I'm also really digging American Horror Story.
Music-I currently have an unhealthy obsession with David Bowie. He can do no wrong in my eyes. I hope he tours or at least does a show or two. Other favorites are New York Dolls, Blondie, Brian Slade, The Runaways, Joan Jett, The Beatles and the Rolling Stones. I've been a huge Beatles fan since I was 3, so I am shocked to learn I am starting to really like The Rolling Stones. My aunt recently gave me her lps. Listening to The Beatles on vinyl just rekindled my love for them. Just to prove I like stuff besides 70s rock I also like Arcade Fire, Lykke Li, Friendly Fires, No Age, El Perro among others. I also like some good ol' cheesy pop-Britney Spears, Ke$ha, etc...I've always rediscovered some bands from back in the day I loved-Garbage, Goo Goo Dolls and the like-pure nostalgic bliss! I got to dance onstage with Iggy Pop at Riot Fest last summer, and I'd have to say that was the highlight of my life!haha I recently got turned onto Sonic Youth. I know I"m a little behind on this one, but I think it could be love. I got to see Thorsten Moore recently, and it was amazing! Just saw Sleigh Bells at the Metro, and it was probably one of the most incredible things I've seen. In all seriousness, life won't be the same now.
Food-Pizza and almost anything Italian
2. My digital camera
3. My phone-sad but true
5. Diet Coke
6. My stereo/music
One of my few regrets in life is not getting to CBGB before it became a clothing store.
I want to take a trip to New Orleans. I went to school down there. Who's in?
Bowie really needs to tour, to promote the new album. My life won't be complete if I don't see him live.
I have five tattoos, which for the most part are easily hidden. I know what I want for a 6th, but not sure where to get it. Should I take the plunge and have it be more focal and not so easily hidden?
My favorite possession is a pair of flowered Dr. Martens I got when I was 17. They've been everywhere with me. I don't think I could ever bring myself to get rid of them.
...and if you live in the city. Like a lot of people here, I don't have a car, so CTA accessibility is important!ha
