Sometimes, my internal quest for enjoyment overrides the external social norms. Which is a roundabout way of saying I will always be an enthusiastic karaoke participant. But I will butcher any and all singing, and most likely choose some terrible song. It will be embarrassing for those around me (unless you can also hang), but I will be so happy.
And in all my free time, I pick up some freelance graphic design work. Mostly related to some political / social work I believe in, when given the opportunity.
A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, The Giver, Ishmael, A Separate Peace, Into The Wild, Everything Is Illuminated. Dave Eggers is my favorite writer. The last book I read was Michael Pollan's latest, "Cooked".
I own three movies: The Royal Tenenbaums, Stranger Than Fiction, and Drop Dead Gorgeous. Oh, and some great French movie I bought while studying abroad without proper knowledge of the difference in DVD types, and now I cannot play on my American TV.
The West Wing, always and forever.
Guster is my all time favorite band, and yes, I recognize that they are totally lame. The heart wants what it wants. Recently I've been into Lord Huron, Andrew Bird, Ben Howard, and San Fermin. I like Ben Folds, Bon Iver, the Beatles, The xx, Pearl Jam, Kanye West.
Thai, pickles, mustard, oysters, sour beer, stouts, good bread. Anything homemade. Really, kind of anything.
If I had a superpower, I sometimes think I'd like to have the ability to transcribe every. single. thought. that goes through my head. Can you imagine reading that over?
For example I just (in my head) considered the similarities between "pickle" and "bagel". Not at all in their form or taste, but in the words.
So, sometimes I spend too long thinking about irrelevant musings.
Update: it still makes no sense to me, but I have overcome that to learn the difference. I can now comfortably use "former" or "latter" in conversation.
