Book-wise, I'm not real sure. John Dies at the End is absolutely
#1. I also really dug the sequel, This Book is Full of Spiders.
Also, the Captain Underpants series. It taught me that there's
seriously no limits to how ridiculous you can make things, and was
absolutely what got me into writing when I was a kid.
Movies would pretty consistently be comedies. I also like a good
horror movie just fine. The list is too big on both of these
genres, so it's kinda hard to give examples. I also love a good,
classic Eastwood western and have yet to fall out of love with the
"quirky indie movie with handwritten title font" genre that seems
to be getting less popular these days.
Shows? Oh man. 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, HIMYM (every now and then),
The IT Crowd, The Mighty Boosh, Snuff Box, old MadTV and SNL,
pretty much all the old Nicktoons and Cartoon Cartoons, practically
everything from Williams Street (Space Ghost, The Brak Show, ATHF,
Squidbillies, etc.), Adventure Time (though I prefer Regular Show,
honestly), and..MAN, I could go on for HOURS. Let's just move
along. (Arrested Development. Arrested Development. Arrested
Musically, it goes all around. Instead of sitting and listing a
whole bunch of bands to show how totally impressive I am at
listening to music, I'll simply say that I'll always be in love
with three bands: Primus, Ween and Modest Mouse. I also really dig
The Antlers. As for entire genres, post-rock is pretty much
guaranteed to get me in a good space. Lately, however, I've been
fostering a real love affair with EDM. The only things I really
can't stand are the grindcore that seems to be WAY too prevalent in
Houston, most country, and some of the more idiotic hip hop
(though, some of it manages to be stupid enough to win me over just
a bit. Lookin' at you, Li'l B).
Food-wise..pretty much nothing good for me. I know it's bad, and
it's definitely something I'm trying to change, but there's just
something about a fat, greasy burger that just does it for me. They
call to me, you know. In my dreams.
