things i love
Wow, hi there! You found my secret page! Here are some things I'm loving at the moment.
Undertale is the perfect video game. If you haven't played it, you should. I played it on the Switch, but it's available on most systems, including PC!
I'm also really enjoying Hades (another perfect game!!), Cozy Grove, and Hero Hours Contract. Fire Emblem: Three Houses is also an incredible work of storytelling that may or may not have helped me fix a structural issue in one of my plays, lol.
I've been on a big contemporary romance kick lately. Check out the work of Sarah Hogle, Talia Hibbert, and Emily Henry! Also, shoujo manga has a wealth of incredible and fun romance stories. Ask me about it!
My favorite book of all time is the His Dark Materials trilogy. In Other Lands by Sarah Rees Brennan is a an incredible portal fantasy (with a bisexual Jewish protagonist) that should be far more popular. I recently read The Book of Eels by Patrik Svensson and I can't stop thinking about it. And of course I read a lot of plays; if you're a playwright on New Play Exchange let me know!
Tv & movies
I'm really loving Ted Lasso at the moment. Other shows I've enjoyed include Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Russian Doll, Bojack Horseman, Yuri On Ice, Battlestar Galactica, Avatar the Last Airbender, and Game of Thrones (let's pretend the last season didn't happen, though).
I also LOVE a Miyazaki movie or a magical girl anime.
I've gotten in the habit of making elaborate themed Spotify playlists lately!
I love Mitski, The Mountain Goats, The Crane Wives, Anais Mitchell, and probably whatever indie music is trending on TikTok right now. Did you hear that remix of "Castaways" from the Backyardigans?
