Music is the big one here: I live and breathe it. Got to have it on
all the time. I tend towards indie rock, and stuff that makes me
nostalgic for the good ole days. A small selection of favorites:
Replacements, Robyn Hitchcock, Beatles, Andrew Bird, Nick Drake,
Peter Gabriel, Pink Floyd, Billy Bragg & Wilco (individually,
but not so much the Woody Guthrie albums they did together), Too
Much Joy, Gravel Pit, Pixies, Ryan Adams, Bright Eyes, Sleigh
Bells, Titus Andronicus, Jaymay. I'm an encyclopedia of early 80's
music. I know everyone here says it, but I mean it. Really.
As for movies and TV, I tend to gravitate towards dark and/or
clever comedies or geeky sci-fi stuff. Fave movies: Ghostbusters,
Rushmore, Big Lebowski, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, Blade
Runner. Fave TV: Daily Show/Colbert Report, Breaking Bad, Game of
Thrones, Homeland, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Doctor Who,
Walking Dead, Mad Men, Battlestar Galactica, The Wire, Freaks and
Geeks, anything on Adult Swim.
I promise that I never use the word "fave" in normal
I'm into comedy, particularly the "alternative" scene here in NYC.
I love going to see comedy shows at The Bell House, Union Hall,
UCB, etc. I regularly listen to comedy podcasts "WTF With Marc
Maron" and "Comedy Bang Bang". Good stuff.
I wish I were a bigger reader, but I'm still blaming college for
burnout. Just finished the George R.R. Martin "Song of Fire and
Ice" books (what can I say? I'm a dork!) and am biding my time
until the next one. Some of the authors I'll always go back to:
Tolkien, Vonnegut, Pratchett, William S. Burroughs, Hunter S.
