Music: Give me a pile of dusty records and I'm happy. I love blues,
soul, jazz, and music from New Orleans. Hip-hop- mostly from the
mid-90s golden era, (The Roots, Outkast, Wu-Tang.). I'll give damn
near anything a chance. Indie, EDM, bluegrass, you name it.
Books: I'm reading "A Confederacy of Dunces" right now and it is
f'n hilarious. Cormac McCarthy's "Blood Meridian." One of the
densest, funniest books I've ever read was "The Sot-Weed Factor;"
props if you've read it or even heard of it.
Shows: The usual HBO suspects-- The Wire, GOT, John Oliver, and I
really enjoyed watching Treme in its entirety before a trip to New
Orleans. Sports. 30 Rock. SNL. Parks & Rec.
Movies: I was in an ostentatiously named "Exclusive Movie Club"
where the same two friends and I would watch a weird-as-shit film
that one person picked but the others knew nothing about. Then we'd
have a beer afterward try to process it.
