Killed my cable TV three years ago, and a home without technicolor
shouty advertising is indeed a happier one. Media diet consists of
news, politics, music and tech blogs, funny podcasts, netflixOD,
xbox/iphone/ipad games, live gigs, BBC anything, stand-up comedy,
graphic art and novels, worthwhile sub-reddits, street art, and

My iTunes tells me that recently I've favoured RATM, the Stepkids,
Muse, The Heavy, SOAD, Public Enemy, Beethoven, Queen, Lamb of God,
Gil and Veloso, Brian Eno, Cypress Hill, Arctic Monkeys, Brad
Sucks, AC/DC, Vivaldi, The Hives, Pulp, Wu-Tang, Franz Ferdinand,
and McLusky/Future of the Left. Probably not in that order. Also a
lot of WeFunk Radio, the greatest streaming radio station on the
I love the Dead Authors podcast. If you've never heard it, you
should get on that.
