Books: I should probably read a lot more, but I like Pynchon and
David Foster Wallace. I mostly read non fiction about history,
sociology or modern psychology. Or about food.
Film: Reservoir Dogs, The Good the Bad and the Ugly, Mulholland
Drive, Days of Heaven, Synecdoche NY, Inside Llewyn Davis
(basically all Coen Bros except for the shitty ones).
Mad Max is obviously the shit and I hope it becomes a big influence
in the future.
TV: Breaking Bad, The West Wing, X-Files, Curb/Seinfeld, good
sketch comedy (Monty Python, The State, Mr. Show, Key & Peele,
Mitchell & Webb, Inside Amy Schumer), Billy on the Street,
Broad City, Workaholics. My guilty pleasures are shows like Bar
Rescue or Restaurant Stakeout, where they put surveillance in a
shitty bar/restaurant to spy on the negligent employees, usually
resulting in hilarity.
Food: Food is probably the best thing. I like super spicy food, and
probably eat too much pork. Modern Mexican and South/SE Asian are
my two faves. I think celery is the most vile thing in the world
and Italian food is incredibly overrated. Favorite fruits/vegs
include: Tomatoes, kale, arugula, pineapple, avocados, eggplant,
Also quite into beer, preferably the high ABV, balanced and
flavorful variety. IPAs and strong Belgian beers are my faves.
