Going to school in the Bay Area has its major advantages. For instance, I can get Italian, Thai, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, American, or Mexican food all within a couple of blocks. Where else can I do that? Berkeley is an amazing city for finding little places to go between classes and for late night coffee runs. I can’t say where my favorite place is because there are so many!
What I can say is that my favorite band, Rancid, indeed comes from Berkeley! They are incredibly talented and every album has a completely different sound. They have been around for a long time, but still haven’t gotten too big—I can still go see them at the Warfield in San Francisco. The lead singer was raised in Albany, where I’m from, and it’s cool to listen to him singing about the same places I go to too.
As for my favorite tv shows and movies, I have tons. Right now I’m all about medical shows: Scrubs, Grey’s Anatomy, House, Nip/Tuck…. I like how Scrubs can go from incredible hilarity to instant sadness within seconds. House is great too, I always know that whatever I think is happening, it’s really just the opposite. They pull the craziest things on that show!
I think I would describe my movie taste as eclectic. My favorites range from Amelie to Mary Poppins to the Shawshank Redemption. I think it just depends on what mood I’m in at the time. Right now, I’m really into Little Miss Sunshine. My roommate introduced me to the movie and it is so funny. It’s about a dysfunctional family who takes a roadtrip so that the daughter can compete in a beauty pageant. The little girl is so cute and the heroin snorting grandfather is so crass and funny.
Whatever mood I’m in, whatever time it is in the day, I know I can watch something, listen to something, or eat something that fits the bill. Come by to our office hours and tell us your favorites!
