I can spend hours upon hours in Barnes and Noble. I'll read just
about anything from a psychology textbook, to a graphic design
manual or how-to book, to just about any form of fiction.
I'm a sucker for a good documentary. I used to love horror movies,
but I've lost hope for anything recently made. I'm also one of
those losers that picks a series on Netflix and watches it from
start to finish as quickly as possible. Lost, Mad Men, Heroes, and
Sons of Anarchy. Bates Motel and the League have been the latest...
As for music... Just about anything, honestly. Random examples:
Streetlight Manifesto, Incubus, Brand New, Finch, Atmosphere,
Machine Head, Bonobo, Aqueous, Florence and the Machine, Thomas
Jack, Above & Beyond
