Books: Most Murakami novels with a few exceptions. Same goes for
Vonnegut. Other things too, most certainly, but those are my two
primary literary obsessions.
Comics: Sandman, Transmetropolitan, The Invisibles, 100 Bullets,
Saga, God Hates Astronauts, Manhattan Projects, Lucifer, Sex
Criminals, and Y: The Last Man
Movies: Pulp Fiction, Hobo With A Shotgun, My Neighbor Totoro,
Akira Kurosawa's Dreams, The City of Lost Children, Waking
Life, The Fountain, Oldboy(original), The Big Lebowski, The
Hudsucker Proxy, Groundhog Day, Anchorman, Dredd, and Tokyo Gore
Shows: Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Star Trek:
Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: TNG, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,
House of Cards, Orange Is The New Black, Cowboy Bebop, and Parks
Music: A lot of stuff. As in, quite possibly a fuck-ton. Lately
it's mostly really funky, glitchy, mid-tempo EDM or
folksy/bluegrass type stuff.
Food: Vegetarian things. Curry, tacos, burritos, basic steamed
and/or roasted veggies, fried over-easy eggs, vegemite, bulgarian
feta, borscht, rye toast. You get the idea. Lots of stuff.
Beverages: Cold brewed coffee.
