Books - Lolita, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy...though mostly I
read subtitles on foreign-language movies which look like books if
Movies - Rather than rattle off my saber of sharply esoteric film
choices, I'll just tell you the directors I enjoy: Tarkovsky,
Kaurismaki, Kubrick, Kurosawa, Kiarostami, Nolan, Tarantino,
Jodorowsky, Cronenberg, and sometimes (why not?) Hitchcock.
Shows - I've watched The Simpsons far longer than I should have and
still do. Been down The Wire while I was Breaking Bad with
Sherlock, but now I'm with Yuru Yuri and Kotoura-san as we look to
see if mentioning Kodomo no Jikan raises some red flags for people.
And of course, anything by PFFR and/or Tim and Eric. Adult Swim,
hey man whatever, I'm easy.
Music - I don't listen to music nor do I breathe air. But if I did,
I'd listen to Mastodon, Blind Guardian, King Diamond, Flight of the
Conchords, Dethklok, and oxygen.
Food - I prefer stuffing myself with popcorn, but if you don't have
any, I'll stuff myself with prime rib, french fries, bacon, apples,
dumplings, or sweeeeeeet back-tack. As long as I regret it later.
