First things first: Bill Hicks.
Well, books. Vonnegut, Marquez, Twain, Kundera, Faulkner, Borges,
Robbins... I'm surprised I could get that far. I read
"professionally" now, so it's been a long time since I've read for

Hm, movies. Start with the most quotable: The Blues Brothers, The
Princess Bride, Raising Arizona, The Jerk, Spinal Tap, Zoolander,
Pulp Fiction, The Three Amigos, Ghostbusters, Heathers, Blazing
Saddles, Joe Dirt, Life of Brian. Okay, I also love The Music Man.

Minders, Queen, Public Enemy, Chris Smithers, Stevie Wonder, Tom
Waits, PJ Harvey, Andrew Bird, Eminem, Prince, Black Keys, P Funk,
Mississippi John Hurt, Brian Eno, Billy Bragg, T Rex, Outkast, Iron
& Wine, Louis Prima, The Postal Service, Jimi Hendrix, Flaming
Lips, Radiohead, Smokey Robinson, Bowie, Elvis Costello, Taj Majal,
The Temptations, Dresden Dolls, Son House, Thievery Corp, Marvin
Gaye, Charles Mingus, Groove Armada, Did I mention T Rex?
