Running and staying in shape is also pretty important to me. I hope to run a marathon soon. I know what you're thinking: "Yea right!" Hey, I'm gonna do it!
Some of my favs include: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Memento, Office Space, Anchorman, Dumb & Dumber, Being John Malcovich, Black Swan, Slumdog Millionaire, 28 Days Later, etc., also American indie stuff.
I love international cinematic styles as well.. like Alfonso Cuaron (Children of Men), Pedro Almodovar, Kassovitz, or Haneke flicks.. Also Chinese martial arts and melodrama movies.
I also really enjoy a good documentary such as anything on science, politics (without an agenda), religious, or interesting life stories. As a potential aspiring documentary shooter, I have the the utmost respect for the hard work and passion it takes to pull off a truly great documentary.
TV shows: The Office, Community, Parks & Recreation, Always Sunny, Party Down, Being Human, How I Met Your Mother, Buffy, Firefly, Freaks & Geeks, .. etc...
Music: Sigur Ros, Explosions in the Sky, Floyd, Zeppelin, Radiohead, NIN, Kid Cudi, Lissie, Opeth, Imogen Heap, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Silversun Pickups, Mutemath, Death Cab, Eminem, The Swell Season, Foals, TV on the Radio.. Classical if the mood calls for it. Indie rock, local bands, friends' bands, ..etc.. The list goes on and on.
"You made it Weird" podcasts, comedians..
(to be continued...)
Mac computer (with Final Cut Pro)
Ipod (w/ good headphones)
Notebook & Pen
I also think a lot about contemporary visual aesthetics, my job, what to consume next, what kind of dog I'd like to get and when, story ideas, technology, extra terrestrials, conspiracy theories, girls, and current events.
I try to think objectively with a positive attitude no matter how much pessimism may surround me. I hate when people just complain and moan about things. Quit bitching and use your perfectly capable self to do something about it!
