Most Coen Brothers movies. Pretty fond of Wes Anderson, Hayao
Miyazaki, Terry Gilliam, Danny Boyle, John Waters. I like low
budget horror movies, exploitation films, found footage (the
awkward kind, not the faux-documentary kind), and Korean revenge

Children of Men, World's Greatest Dad, Shawshank Redemption,
Snatch, Big Fish, High Fidelity, Survive Style 5+, Dr. Strangelove,
Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Ed Wood, Boogie Nights, Man on Wire,
Heathers, Schizopolis, 12 Angry Men, 4 Lions.
I really like sketch comedy and animated programs. I have a
particular fondness for a lot of children's television. It might be
silly, but it's really comforting sometimes. Adventure Time, The
Venture Bros., Mr. Show, Peep Show, The Kids in the Hall, Arrested
Development, Futurama, Rocko's Modern Life, Mission Hill, Look
Around You, Reading Rainbow, The Daily Show, Space Ghost, The Young
Ones, Spaced, The Joy of Painting, Breaking Bad.
I mostly read comics and essay collections. I'm partial to David
Sedaris, Neil Gaiman, John Hodgman, Stephen King, Sarah Vowell,
Kurt Vonnegut, Jason, and for a few specific books, Bone, Let the
Right One In, The Master and Margarita, and TinTin.
