Michael Crichton, Thomas Harris, Edgar Allen Poe, HG Wells, Mark
Twain, book I picked up in Africa about Africa, & anything
that's not academic, but work-related reading predominates.
Most 80's flicks are terribly amazing; Blues Brothers; Animal
House; Dumb & Dumber; History of the World Part 1, or really
most anything Mel Brooks (Spaceballs, etc); Jaws; Star Wars;
Indiana Jones; Top Gun; Life of Brian; Airplane, etc. This list is
TV? Mostly crap nowadays. Sports channels and shows, and the
following when they're not stooping to show insane reality TV:
NatGeo, Discovery (especially Shark Week), TLC, Smithsonian,
History, etc. HBO when it had Entourage. Seinfeld is the best
sitcom in history. When young, I was into Wonder Years, Family
Ties, some oldies, SNL up until ~early 2000's, and ALF to name a
No country or super emo stuff. I don't consider Jack
Johnson emo. No bubble gum rock (thanks for starting that
fad Third Eye Blind and Matchbox 20). No boy band or 'Call
Me Maybe'-type stuff. And I would be a happy man to never hear that
Daft Punk song again. Most all else I probably have some of in my
200+ CD collection.
Steak, potatoes, mac & cheese, hot Buffalo wings, veggies
not named asparagus or brussel sprouts, Southern cooking,
good ketchup-based (ie, TN style) BBQ, sweet tea (real sweet tea).
