sorry about the delay on this. i was just traveling for 2 weeks (cross country road trip and then 6 days at Fest). been super fucking sick since i got home
music: my music tastes are pretty all over the place and i tend to like at least a little bit of everything, from quebecois folk music to synthy dance jams to punk to country. i do love me some country. 90s/2000s punk, emo, ska, and hardcore will always have a huge spot in my heart since that’s what i grew up on. i also have a major soft spot for musicians' solo/side projects, especially when it's a totally different genre than the music they're typically known for and bonus points if said side project is alt country (ex: mike herrera - tumbledown, jim ward - sleepercar, jeremy chatelain - cub country, chad price - drag the river, mariachi el bronx, brett detar, nick 13, etc etc). i’m pretty open to most music. the only place where i get super picky is when it comes to bands with female singers. not sure why, but i just can’t get into most female singers. im always excited to find new bands or ones i somehow missed along the way. my two favorite albums of 2017 are 88 fingers louie and dragonforce.
i used to do a pretty good job at keeping my DF and discogs up to date but somewhere along the way stopped being so great at that haha. i do have a want list on discogs, but it’s kind of a hot mess that only makes sense to me haha. i tend to just dump tons of stuff on it and never wind up taking anything off, even after buying it. the bulk of what’s on there is just duplicates/other pressings/variants of things i already own or random things i throw on there that i might grab if they ever popped up for super cheap, but not things i’m actively seeking out. there are still a ton of things on there i do want if that’s helpful information for you to have, but i’d be just as happy with something you love that i’ve never heard of.
movies/tv: horror, comedies, jeunet, aronofsky, lynch, random music docs, cheesy lifetime/hallmark movies, crime shows (pretty much everything on ID), law & order SVU (i’ve seen every single episode. more than once.), orphan black, lost girl, skins, a bunch more things i’m too tired to think of right now.
books: i read pretty much every day on the subway when i commute to work. lately mostly fiction or music/pop culture related books. some of my favorite books include Love is a Mixtape by Rob Sheffield, Geek Love by Katherine Dunn, and The Great Gatsby. currently reading Tommy Land and it is actually way better than expected.
other random things i enjoy: zombies, david hasselhoff, butts and butt-related things (no i dont mean in a sexual way get your mind out the gutter haha. long story short. i actually started a punk rock booty appreciation club haha. and now a lot of friends and such give me funny butt related things like pins and koozies), bacon, football, hockey, canadian football, beer, narwhals, my SNES, baking, tattoos and traditional tattoo art. i also love cats. i have one. his name is jäger. he's pretty damn awesome. oh and i really love jerky if you happen to have any cool locally-produced jerky. we mostly just have the boring mass produced stuff up here in brooklyn
other random things i collect: random david hasselhoff stuff, art prints & gig posters, way too many band shirts, random small toys, lego minifigs, and knick knacks that guard my record collection.
