Books: Wigfield. Moral Politics. Brave New World and its
counterpart The Island. A Confederacy of Dunces is one of my all
time favorites. Anything by David Sedaris. Most things by Augusten
Burroughs and Laurie Notaro. I'm mostly into autobiographies and
books that explore and explain culture. I also totally dug Life of
Pi and The Road. I once tried to read Infinite Jest, but gave up
after about 200 pages. I prefer books that have paragraphs and
punctuation. That's not to say I wouldn't give it another chance
when I can find where I left my patience.
Movies: Wet Hot American Summer, Waiting for Guffman, Mystery Team,
Misery (for the hilarity), Horrible Bosses, Goonies, Monster Squad,
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1 & 2, but not 3, Wes Anderson
movies, pretty much anything with Will Ferrell or Paul Rudd, Brick,
Made, The Salton Sea, the list goes on. My favorite genres include
horror, comedy, action, sci-fi, documentaries. I mostly hate
Shows: It's Always Sunny, The League, Supernatural, The Colbert
Report, The Daily Show, ATHF, Workaholics, New Girl, Bob's Burgers,
Archer, Strangers with Candy, Wainy Days (this counts as a show
right?), Party Down, Veep, Psych, True Blood, Newsroom, The Walking
Dead, Dexter, Lost, and my guilty pleasure: RuPaul's Drag Race.
Don't be fooled, I also watch a lot of garbage, but I won't be
listing those on here.
Music: Off the top of my head: Spill canvas, Lovage (easily the
sexiest music I've ever heard, you should give it a listen),
Handsome Boy Modeling School, The Black Keys, Brandston,
Atmosphere, Murs, Pigeon John, Damien Rice, Imagine Dragons, Muse,
Lupe Fiasco, Buck 65, the Ultra Chilled series, Common, Talib
Kweli, Groove Armada, Mos Def, Kanye, Death Cab, The Postal
Service, Childish Gambino, Macklemore, The Bird and the Bee,
Z-Trip, fun., and so many more. Also, a good cover song always
catches my attention. As cliche as it sounds, I like a little bit
of everything but country, though there are some exceptions. I mean
who couldn't love Johnny Cash, right? I really do love all types of
music though. Let's put it this way: I need a bigger ipod because
80GB is not enough GB to hold my collection. There's also a special
place in my heart for Bossa Nova. And thanks to my parents, I have
an appreciation for classic rock and samba.
Food: I'm usually up for pretty much anything. Especially if it
