Books: One Hundred Years of Solitude, White Noise, Michael Chabon,
McSweeneys, Cormac McCarthy's stuff, Haroun and the Sea of Stories,
David Mitchell, Freedom, Whitman, Emerson, Wallace Stevens... This
list goes on.
Movies: Tarantino, Coen Brothers, Lynch, smart blockbusters, Leone,

TV: Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Breaking Bad, Parks and Rec,
Portlandia, Homeland, Mad Men, Game of Thrones... this is also
really hard to answer.

The Roots, Gershwin, The Shins, Outkast, NPR (mostly the talk

stuff are too long.
Food: I love good food without prejudice.
