Love cooking and drinks and gaming and trying to get my favorite journalists to like my clever replies on Twitter. Finally getting back into working out, and only succeeding because I'm prepping coffee protein shakes on the weekend and then feeling obligated to use them.
Just so we're clear I smoke a few cigarettes every day so if that's a dealbreaker let's save ourselves a little time.
GAMES: This isn't part of the prompt, but I'm a dedicated gamer when I have time. Love RPGs and strategy games, but great platformers and fighting games are right up my alley too (beating me at Smash Brothers or Street Fighter is the fastest way to my heart). Also love board and card games of all varieties.
MOVIES: Give me something to think about and gripping experiences, and I'll enjoy it -- if it features weeping elderly people or exploding helicopters, doesn't really matter. Also, I like porn, but not too much.
SHOWS: The Simpsons allowed me to form a tolerable personality. Love Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Game of Thrones, Veep. I can't get enough of Tina Fey or Amy Poehler or RuPaul. Obviously Samantha Bee and Stephen Colbert. I watched Sealab 2021 in its original run and it had an outsized impact on me.
MUSIC: All time faves are definitely Bjork, The Cardigans, Belle and Sebastian, Neko Case. I've been obsessed with Tame Impala, Beach House, Rilo Kiley, The New Pornographers, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, M. Ward, and Camera Obscura lately. Before that it was non-stop Queen, Fleetwood Mac, and Joni Mitchell. A brief list of others: tUnE-yArDs, The Zombies, Deerhoof, Sufjan Stevens, En Vogue, Erykah Badu, Stereolab, Jens Lekman, Mirah, Portishead, Fleet Foxes, and Nellie McKay. Beatles and Beach Boys and Blondie and Beyonce for obvious reasons. For classical and jazz, Chopin, Ravel, Beethoven, Gershwin, Holiday, Glenn Miller, and fuckin Nobuo Uematsu (if you know this reference you should probably say hi). From my choir nerd days, Eric Whitacre, CV Stanford, The Real Group.
FOOD: Yes, please. Pass the butter. Love eating healthy but also indulge the urge for pasta early and often. Not a big sweet tooth guy.
I love cooking like a prosperous peasant. Sunday is stew day most of the time if I'm not roasting a chicken or making a bolognese baked with mozzarrella.
I am a dabbling astrologer who looks at it as a tool for personal development, and I'm interested in some esoteric stuff like tarot. Even if you don't buy it, I hope that you can respect my interest in it. Always looking for the right spiritual direction.
You like long make-out sessions before the clothes even start to come off.
