Kurt Vonnegut (RIP) is my favorite author. He is so innovative and
insightful, and he has really shaped the way I view the world. Some
other authors that I love are: John Irving, Tolkein, Frank Herbert,
Ursula K LeGuin, David Sedaris, Neil Gaiman.
My favorite movie ever is The Big Lebowski, but I feel like that's
a cop-out akin to saying The Beatles are your favorite band. I
mean, who doesn't like The Dude?? Some other awesome movies are:
Princess Bride, Shawshank Redemption, Spirited Away.
Six Feet Under is the best show I've ever watched. It is just so
funny and smart and intensely moving. Consistently excellent
throughout the entire series. Close behind are Breaking Bad and
Firefly. Some other things that I like are Mad Men, The Walking
Dead, Battlestar Galactica, and anything on the Food Network.
Music is always tough to really categorize because there's such a
huge variety of awesome stuff out there. At the moment, my favorite
band is The Smashing Pumpkins. I'm also really digging Wolfmother,
The Muggs, The Black Keys, The White Stripes, and Richard Thompson.
Some other people that I like in general are classic rock mainstays
like The Beatles (duh), Zeppelin, the Stones, etc...
Indian food is my favorite ever, but I really love all kinds of
food - sushi, Thai, Italian, American, Mexican...
