My favorite authors are Stephen King and David Sedaris. Sarah
Vowell is pretty cool too. And before you start thinking I'm a
creeper for liking the King, let me tell ya, he's more a modern
fantasy writer than a horror nut. Seriously, check out 11/22/63. I
guar-an-teeeee (french chef voice) you'll love it.
Movie wise, I'm less interested in them. I do have a few favorites,
though. Hot Fuzz, Forrest Gump, and Dumb and Dumber never fail to
put smile on my face.
Bands... uh... I love Bad Religion, The Hives, Fun, The Format, Bob
Dylan... There's more but my taste in music is something I'd rather
save for conversation material.
When it comes to television, I normally stick to comedies.
I constantly re-watch Arrested Development, old episodes of the
Simpsons, Seinfeld, and Spielberg cartoons (Animaniacs, etc.). A
non-comedy that I enjoy is Doctor Who. It's corny as hell but, by
golly, it's grown on me. Oh, and Person of Interest... I kind of
have a thing for anything involving Artificial Intelligence (except
the movie Artificial Intelligence, ironically). I also enjoy
Foods... well, just read my "six things" thing.
