And as for you blog readers, think of this post as a way to get to know me better. In other words: you will know me by the fan sites I create. Or at least you’ll get an idea of what I’m listening to, reading and watching at the moment. Here’s a list of things I LIKE.
I LIKE MUSIC
Vampire Weekend- because hearing them makes me happy
30 Seconds to Mars -makes me want to sing out loud
Phoenix, the French band – makes me want to cruise down PCH with the sun roof open
Margot and the Nuclear So and Sos- because I love them and my husband and I saw them live 2x!!!
I LIKE TO READ
ONE OF MY FAVE AUTHORS OF ALL TIME IS NEIL GAIMAN - Sandman, American Gods, Coraline, The Graveyard Book ’nuff said.
YOU COULD SAY I LIKE VAMPIRES
Twilight - haven’t seen New Moon yet – I’m not THAT kind of fan but I do look forward to seeing the whole saga, and I’ve read the books
True Blood - ok so I didn’t like this HBO series at first because I didn’t think Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) was a sexy enough vampire then I discovered Eric Northman (played by Alexander Skarsgard – swoon) and that converted me. Oh and I like how Bill says “Sookie” (with that southern accent)
I LIKE TV ( BUT I LOVE MY DVR!)
And yes, I’m a sucker for shows where the cast spontaneously breaks into song
GLEE – can’t wait for the new season!
How I met your Mother – okay so I’ve only broken into song once or twice but still – a really funny show
And now for the BEST TWO AMERICAN IDOL GUEST JUDGES – they should make a movie together – a musical of course – it would be BRILLIANT!
I LIKE COOKING SHOWS.
Not a big Rachel Ray fan or Paula Deen but I do like chefs with accents.
Two of my fave cooking shows Take Home Chef and Naked Chef may be off the air but Curtis and Jamie are still darling… they can cook for me anytime! Oh wait, I’m supposed to LEARN to COOK from them… yeah, ok.
I LIKE FUNNY.
And these are my current fave comedians at the moment.
I LIKE INDIE
And finally -Anyone who knows me knows (or should know) I LOVE indie films/music! Here are my current fave indie personalities.
MICHAEL CERA - thought of putting him in my comedian category but figured he had indie cred cos of Juno. He is definitely a funny guy though especially if you see his interviews.
ZOOEY DESCHANEL – her style, her voice – she’s awesome
ADRIAN GRENIER - Yes, you know Adrian from Entourage of course but his indie cred is high – go ask people at Sundance. Cant wait to watch his documentary “Teenage Paparazzo” – heard it was good.
And finally, I built a site for TV SHOWS THAT GOT CANCELED TOO SOON including my late, lamented fave PUSHING DAISIES. I look forward to hearing what shows you miss on TV too – heard that Jericho and Arrested Development fans?
Okay, I’ve said enough.
