I'm no elitist but media matters to me, I hope it does to you too
so we can have those fun smiling arguments about this stuff.
Books: Harry Potter in a big way, "Slaughterhouse 5", "2001: A
Space Odyssey", "Dune", the Discworld series, "The Amazing
Adventures of Cavalier and Clay", stuff by David Sedaris, the
'Millennium' trilogy, The Chronicles of Narnia, some non-fiction
like "Guns, Germs and Steel", some graphic novels like "Maus" and
"The Walking Dead". Calvin and Hobbes. Lately I've been working
through "Song of Ice and Fire".
Movies: Fight Club, Amelie, In Bruges, Billy Madison, American
Beauty, Zoolander, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, the animated Hobbit TV
movie from 1977, The Lives of Others, Hot Rod, Spirited Away,
Princess Mononoke, The Road Warrior, Trainspotting, Black Swan, The
Dark Knight, American Psycho, Almost Heroes, There Will Be Blood,
TV Shows: Arrested Development, Downton Abbey, Community, Sherlock,
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Bored to
Death, Mad Men, 30 Rock, Modern Family, Game of Thrones, True
Blood, How It's Made. And don't tell anybody but I also love
Music: I find Rufus Wainwright's version of "Hallelujah" to be the
superior version and when I hear "bum bum bum ba da da bum" I get
excited for "Under Pressure" not "Ice Ice Baby". Like with people
my musical taste is hard to explain but it's fairly specific and I
know it when I see it.
