I hate these big lists people put here, but I feel compelled to do
it myself, sorry.
I tend toward novels . A lot of classics. I've been on a little
comic-book kick recently. Nick Hornby and Chuck Klosterman resonate
with me; I think it's the "Pop culture through a male lens" tone
their writings seem to take?
Movies that you could describe as "so bad it's good" have been big
on my viewing list as of late. I have strong opinions on what makes
a movie "so bad it's good", but also find it ridiculous that I
City of God, Double Indemnity, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless
Mind, High Fidelity, Shawshank Redemption, Almost Famous,
BASEketball, Citizen Kane, Empire Records, Gallipoli, Glory Daze,
The Professional, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Notorious,
Strong Kids Safe Kids, Swingers, The Graduate, The Big Lebowski,
The Station Agent, The Specials,The Muppet Movie, M, The 1986
Transformers movie, Wordplay, King of Kong, Wayne's World 2, Troll
2, The Room.
I'm all over the place here too. Hosted a few college radio shows
back in the day. Mostly rock, with some blues and older hip hop
scattered in. I like pop music about 5-10 years past it's prime. I
own way too many albums by 90s one hit wonders.
I love cooking. Not great at baking (I don't like following recipes
without some improv). I'll try almost anything. I do find the whole
localvore/vegan diets etc interesting, but I would just as soon
build a bbq pit or pizza oven in the back yard.

Geeks, Breaking Bad, Community (First 3 seasons), Pete & Pete,
