This will be the long part.
Nonfiction, which is its own creature: Why I Write, The Selfish
Gene, The Big Short, Under the Banner of Heaven, Half the Sky, Team
of Rivals, The Bully Pulpit (I like Kearns Goodwin), The Bottom
Billion, Bossypants, Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynman, The Second
World War (Churchill's), Hiroshima, The Better Angels of Our
Nature, and pretty much every essay David Foster Wallace ever
Fiction, which is owned, at first: 1984, The Sandman, Paradise
Lost, Moby Dick, Girl Genius, Neuromancer, Erfworld, The Great
Gatsby, Nana to Kaoru, The Gods Themselves, Game of Thrones,
Breakfast of Champions, The Windup Girl, The Old Man and the Sea,
The Lord of the Rings, Slaughterhouse Five, A Christmas Carol,
Watchmen, Hyperion (the book), The Forever War, Huckleberry Finn,
White Fang, and NONE of the novels David Foster Wallace ever
Poetry, which is not in style, but fuck you: Not Waving but
Drowning, Flanders Field, Good-by and Keep Cold, When You are Old,
Daddy, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, An Essay on Criticism,
On Seeing the Elgin Marbles, Do Not Go Gentle into that Good Night,
The Walrus and the Carpenter and anything by Emily Dickinson
Live, which is never as good read: The Merchant of Venice, Major
Barbara, The Mikado, Wicked, Phantom of the Opera, and any ballet
with music by Tchaikovsky
Movies, which are increasingly difficult to distinguish from TV:
Lawrence of Arabia, Ratatouille, Serenity, Pulp Fiction, The Muppet
Christmas Carol (I am serious, the muppets did the best adaptation
of this story to date), The Godfather, Casablanca, and anything by
TV, which I watch more of than I admit: Firefly, Mad Men, FLCL,
House of Cards and all right all right Archer.
Music, which I sometimes feel I am the only person on the internet
without strong feelings about: Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi, Debussy,
Johnny Cash. The Beatles.
Food, which is an embarrassingly large line-item in my budget: Yes.
