The last book I read is Apathy and Other Small Victories, by Paul

lots of interesting documentaries.
Television: Arrested Development, House of Cards, It's Always Sunny
in Philadelphia, 30 Rock, True Detective, The Walking Dead, Parks
and Recreation, Planet Earth, the old Twilight Zone Series, and a
few cooking/travel shows. Occasionally some delicious
