Movies: My tastes range from gritty and cult (Fight Club, The Big Lebowski) to animated (Coraline, The Adventures of TinTin). I can enjoy almost any movie, though, unless it was made by Michael Bay. But be forewarned: I'm one of those people that talks in the theater.
Shows: I don't watch much broadcast television unless it's sports or local news, but on Netflix I love Sherlock, Dr. Who, Burn Notice, Hell on Wheels, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Futurama. Not really a fan of Family Guy.
Music: I love old vinyl, even though I own none. Crosby, Stills, and Nash, Neil Young, The Allman Brothers, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, et cetera. Nineties era alt rock is my favorite, including bands like Nirvana, Audioslave, Alice in Chains, Tool, and Soundgarden. For modern music, I'm a big fan of Passion Pit, Peter, Bjorn, and John, Two Door Cinema Club, Iron and Wine, and Mumford and Sons.
Food: I love to cook, and I love to cook healthy. I enjoy experimenting with recipes and unusual ingredients, seeing what I can do with them. I also make a mean homemade pizza.
So anyway, here are six things.
1.) My laptop (only because it's got all my writings stored on it)
2.) A good pair of running shoes
3.) My old, beaten, written-in Bible
4.) My guitar (so I can practice so I won't suck)
6.) Good beer
I wanted to go the route of "loved ones and friends", but they're not really 'things'. And it goes without saying that I can't live without them.
One of my biggest celebrity crushes was/is the Supernanny.
I have a pair of Chuck Taylors that are older than the students I teach.
