I am unusual, intellectual, and hilarious
Movies that are important to me: Zentropa, Buckaroo Banzai, The Neverending Story (potentially ruined by adulthood), City of Lost Children, Delicatessen, Willy Wonka (the Gene Wilder one, don't get me started), Johnny Dangerously, Pi, Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke, Pootie Tang, Waiting for Guffman, Time Bandits and Baron Munchausen, Casino Royale (David Niven and Woody Allen), Fight Club, Kids In The Hall: Brain Candy, The Dark Crystal, Contact, El Mariachi, Donnie Darko, District 9... Film is very important to me, in my blood even.
TV shows (I recently dropped cable and am relying on my AppleTV and Hulu... so far, not as crappy as I thought): No Reservations, 30 Rock, Top Gear (so pretty), The Daily Show & Colbert, 24, Chuck... you know, writng a (longer) list of these really makes me wonder how I get any work done or have a social life. I am an encyclopedia of Monty Python's TV episodes.
Books: honestly I don't read enough, though I come off as very literary... whatever that means nowadays. I love Mark Leyner, Palahniuk, Dostoevsky, Vonnegut, Allende, and Sedaris Sedaris Sedaris!
Music: I grew up in New York in the late 70's/early 80's; so The Cars, The Rolling Stones, Blondie and Kraftwerk are a part of my identity. My musical tastes are varied and particular... They Might Be Giants practically saved my life in middle/high school. I would have given my freedom to be a manservant to Bjork on her private island, if she weren't married to that asshole (who I know isn't as much of an asshole as he comes across). I'm newly loving Muse and Chromeo, and still loving Daft Punk, Cibo Matto, Aphex Twin, Del tha Funkee Homosapien (though I've never seen him live), Radiohead... a lot, let's leave it at that.
I'm looking to be friends first with a humble know-it-all with very few boundaries; someone with a mind as clever and naughty as mine. Someone who enjoys non-sequiturs and minutiae, but likes to talk about the grand concepts as well.
