A good date may involve all of the above.
Five Easy Pieces is my favorite movie ever. I like early Scorcese: Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore and Mean Streets. I like movies and TV shows about crime and the mob: Serpico, Justified, and Hannibal. I like Westerns, too: The Ballad of Cable Hogue, Once Upon a Time in the West. Let's talk about the subversive fun of Starship Troopers. Time Bandits and Gates of Heaven make me ecstatic every time I watch them. Movies about food excite me: Big Night, The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover and Ratatouille.
Music-wise, I love bleeps and bloops, exquisitely-crafted pop, whiplash-inducing hooks, and big beats. I like silky chaunteuses like Ambrosia Parsley and Edith Piaf, dreamy pop like Mazzy Star and Dum Dum Girls, bubbly pop vocalists like Gwen Stefani and Kylie Minogue, and electropop divas like Tracy Thorn, Goldfrapp, Martina Topley-Bird, and Ladytron. If you like Prince, chances are we'll have something to talk about. Recently I've been digging Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX.
As for food, I like soups, stews and sauces. Richness and decadence. Fish of all kinds. Anything with jalapenos. Mustard. Vermont Curry. Anything I haven't tried before.
Ask me about why I never leave the house without a pen. It's a good story.
You draw both inspiration and frustration from our flawed world.
You like reading the Modern Love column in the Sunday New York Times.
You love Tucson. At a minimum, you aren't complaining every other second about how much you hate it, how much more you like Seattle or San Francisco or New York or Portland or Austin, and how you just can't wait to move out of here.
I work constantly. So if I don't message you back within a day or two, hang in there.
