Oooh, books are a toughie: probably my all time favourite comic
novel is 'A Confederacy of Dunces' by John Kennedy Toole, and my
favourite novel overall is 'Dead Souls' by Gogol (it's a little
jollier than the title suggests, but only just.) At the moment, I'm
reading a lot of historical and political studies- my favourite
books of the moment are Adam Hochschild's 'To End All Wars' about
WW1 and 'Thinking Fast and Slow' by Daniel Kahneman. I also read
'Private Eye' on a regular basis.
My favourite movies are the Godfather Parts 1 and 2, Monty Python's
Life of Brian, the Dark Knight, Get Carter, Dr Strangelove, Control
(the film about Joy Division singer Ian Curtis), and Hot Shots Part
TV Shows-wise, I mostly watch The Big Bang Theory, Frasier, Curb
Your Enthusiasm, Homeland and The Thick of It.
Music-wise: I'm a rock fan overall, and enjoy classic and
indie/alternative music. My favourite bands are Black Rebel
Motorcycle Club, Joy Division, the Doors and Can.
Finally, I'm a massive chocoholic. Otherwise, I'm cool with most
