Books: The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson, A Yellow Raft in Blue Water by Michael Dorris, The African Safari Papers by Robert Sedlack, Tipping the Velvet by Sara Waters, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, South of the Border West of the Sun by Haruki Murakami, Wild by Cheryl Strayed, The Telling Room by Michael Paterniti, The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan, The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran, Just Kids by Patti Smith, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer and Fun Home by Alison Bechdel are just a few of the books I love with my whole heart.
Movies: The Fall, Bad Santa, History of Violence, The Prestige, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Hot Rod, Stranger than Fiction, Gattaca, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Clue, The Game, Running Scared (it's so wonderfully atrocious), Frida, Harold and Kumar go to Whitecastle, The Iron Giant, and pretty much any horror film.
Shows: I'm a media junkie obsessed with a good storyline. Right now I'm frothing at the mouth over The Knick and Fargo. Current obsessions and past loves include Breaking Bad, 6 Feet Under, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and You're the Worst (for a little levity).
Music: I'm constantly looking for new music to work out to, add to my naked dance party playlists or to serve as a subtle backdrop to my endless internet surfing. All time favorites include: Phoenix, Passion Pit, Putamayo World Music, The Jackson 5, Third Eye Blind, Brown Derbies, Marry Me Jane, Ani Difranco, Red Hot Chili Peppers and MIKA. I love a lot of junky pop music and have no shame about that fact. Musical elitism is boring and unoriginal.
Food: Sweet tea, meat and potatoes (southern lady here). For my last meal I'd go with one of the following: a burger and fries, a pork quesadilla (from Taco Bus specifically), a schnitzel with hot potato salad or chicken pad thai. I pretty much eat anything except seafood, and I'm working on that one.
