Books: Anything by Hermann Hesse, Cormac McCarthy, Ray Bradbury,
Kurt Vonnegut, Jack London, or Erik Larson, Bloody White Baron,
House of Leaves, World War Z, the Gunslinger series, Lord of the
Flies, etc etc. This list could easily contain 50 books. I am
always reading a book (or two) and it could be anything from
Bukowski to historical non-fiction. Oh, and Where the Wilds Things
Are, love that book.
Movies: Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Anything by Darren Aronofsky,
One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, Goon (or anything with hockey in
it), almost anything by Kevin Smith, etc. Love horror, sci-fi, and
comedies, anything surreal, bizarre, or silly.
TV: Planet Earth (with David Attenborough, of course), Venture
Bros., South Park, most adult cartoons, Always Sunny in
Philadelphia, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, and hockey. Hockey.
And more Hockey. And occasionally baseball or American football.
Hockey is actually the only reason I would consider paying for
cable, I barely watch TV anymore.
Music: Flogging Molly, Against Me!, Alkaline Trio, American Steel,
Dropkick Murphies, Legendary Shack Shakers, Lawrence Arms. Lots of
punk, ska, rock n roll, and psychobilly. Irish folk music makes me
happy, and I know most of the traditionals. Get me drunk and I will
sing to you. I listen to a lot of random stuff. I can't stand rap
music, or most of the top 40 pop music they play over and over on
the radio, and it makes me feel like a grumpy old man. Right now
I'm listening to The Mighty Fine's album In Revival over and over
until I hate it. Check them out, they're local and good!
Food: Anything! Seriously, I'm reverse picky when it comes to
different foods, I want to try everything. The ultimate comfort
food for me is a good burger (seriously I have a problem) and a
craft beer, or Pho. Always looking to try something new. And spicy
food, Sriracha is a food group. I don't eat fast food, and try to
avoid junk food. I don't really have a sweet-tooth.
