On TV, I'm picky. Breaking Bad, Archer, Arrested Development, Game
of Thrones (they fight, they get naked. It's brilliant), The
Shield, and about once a year I rewatch the whole run of The Wire
(even season 5, whose depiction of the Baltimore Sun makes me
question my career choices more than I'd like).
Movies, I'll watch anything, from the art house to the dumbest of
comedies. I guess I'm a pretentious intellectual populist.
I'm a proud music snob, but my taste leans towards stuff that rocks
out. Grunge, punk, glam metal and hardcore are my usual playlists,
but I'm also a huge classic rock and blues fan, and I'll dabble in
hip hop here and there.
Books - haven't read much fiction lately. I love biographies of
20th century American leaders, and investigative journalism works
like David Simon's The Corner or Jeremy Scahill's book on private
security firms in the US. I also have a weakness for trashy rock
and roll biographies. Motley Crue's The Dirt is a personal
favourite. I am currently slowly inching my way through David
Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest, a book that I'm told has defeated
many people much smarter than I.
I will literally eat everything. Seriously. Don't test me.
