On TV, I'm picky. Breaking Bad, Archer, Arrested Development, Game
of Thrones (they fight, they get naked. It's brilliant), The
Shield, and once a year I rewatch the whole run of The Wire.
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
I will literally eat everything. Seriously. Don't test me.
