Current leaders of the respective packs:
As far as current reading goes, Richard Clarke's Against All
But as far as favorites go: Cormac McCarthy's The Road,
Pratchett's Discworld books, Pratchett and Gaiman's Good
Omens, Style Deficit Disorder, anything by John Hodgman,
(here's where I get into the really nerdy shit, as if the last few
mentions weren't nerdy enough) Scott Pilgrim, Superman:
Red Son, Superman: True Brit (note the Elseworlds
theme), Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth,
Umbrella Academy*, Lupton's Thinking With Type.
Goon, Sukiyaki Western Django (and pretty much any
other variation on the Yojimbo/Django theme), anything Mel Brooks
(particularly Blazing Saddles), Kentucky-Fried Movie, The
Prestige (The Illusionist can chug a series of cocks as
far as I'm concerned. That shit sucked.), The Big Lebowski, Stop
Making Sense, The Usual Suspects and then some.TV
subscript sidenote: Sons of Anarchy, Archer, Party Down, Firefly,
My musical tastes change on a daily basis, so I'm not gonna get
into it outside of mentioning the latest 5 Pandora stations I've
booted up: The Go! Team, Asylum Street Spankers, Lights, Buck 65,
and The Suzan. And I've been listening to Neutral Bling Hotel's
In My G4 Over Da Sea a lot lately.
As far as food goes, I'll try anything once (I thought escargot was
no big deal at 4 years old, so yeah, anything). Feta-stuffed
olives with black pepper-crusted sausage and French bread have been
a post-work go-to lately. Also been on a major food truck kick as
of late. Personal favorite thus far goes to Seoul Taco's bulgogi
*When I ran room service to Ray Toro after My Chemical Romance
played the Pageant, I didn't even mention the band. All I could ask
was "When the FUCK is Gerard gonna write more Umbrella Academy?"
OK, so maybe I wasn't that forceful with my phrasing, but I
was definitely more concerned with Gerard's comic-writing than his
song-writing (even if I do consider MCR's latest album a raging
guilty pleasure). And then we played Gran Turismo. True story.
