I'm also a big film dork. I try not to be snobby about it, though! Sometimes you're in the mood for a Michael Bay explosionfest and sometimes you're in the mood for a super-serious Warner Herzog documentary, you know? I'm doing my best to watch as many classics as I can.
When I was growing up we moved around a lot. Never east of the Mississippi but I've lived in Utah, Washington, California, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma (and Colorado has always been something of a home-away-from-home). I liked them all!
I did yoga for a little while and my yoga instructor told me that I have very flexible hips, which is pretty sweet I guess. I wasn't able to fit it into my schedule after taking classes for about a month and I fell out of it but I would not object to starting back up again.
I got a pass to Squaw Valley so I've been going skiing regularly for the first time since I lived in Utah. I forgot how amazing it feels to go so fast basically standing on long sticks.
Movies: I've seen The Fifth Element more times than I can count. Same with Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. There are too many films I love that I feel like if I started making a list I would be doing this for hours. Directors: Kubrick, PT Anderson, Kevin Smith (hit and miss), Davids Lynch, Fincher, and Cronenberg. You know, guys like that. I am not phased by black and white, silent, or foreign films. I've gone to the Secret Film Festival at the Del Mar for two years straight now and I love it! Hand-picked foreign and indie movies shown straight from midnight to noon across two screens.
Music: I listen to pretty much anything. An example of CDs I keep in my car: The Magic Flute (Mozart opera), Pink (Boris, Japanese drone metal/noise rock), The Black Album (Jay-Z), the Violent Femmes (self-titled), There is Love in You (Four Tet), Doolittle (Pixies). I also have an unhealthy obsession with Sigur Ros (bought a ticket to the last Treasure Island music fest just to see them and Purity Ring). I've been getting into old jazz and country recently, too. Billie Holiday and Hank Williams have been on the rotation. My car has had the newest Stromae album running for like two weeks straight now.
Food: I'll try anything once. South/Southeast asia (Vietnam, Thailand, and India in particular) probably is my favorite region as far as cuisine. But I love food from all over. I made kalbi beef a few weeks ago and it is one of the most delicious things I've ever created.
Drinks: Whiskey/whisky. In order: Scotch, Japanese, Irish, Bourbon. I also like rum drinks and like tequila as long as I have some training wheels to go with it. Also beer, of course. If you wanna talk scotch with me you should do it.
The other day I was preparing dinner and I wasn't paying attention and I sliced the side of my thumb pretty good. It's always weird being reminded that I'm made out of meat.
Also, I like Depeche Mode.
