BOOKS - The Shadow of the Wind - all time favorite book. Go read it
right now. We can discuss. other books: A Moveable Feast, The
Stranger, anything by David Foster Wallace or Kurt Vonnegut, most
of Chuck Klosterman's stuff.
MOVIES - Stay (it's from the early 2000's, it's got Ryan Gosling
and Ewan McGegor in it. No one else that I know has really heard of
it, so if you have, high fives), The Baxter (favorite line "You
speed walk and I run, that's an amazing coincidence." "Yeah!
...kinda."), Wet Hot American Summer, and maybe Winter
SHOWS - probably the same stuff everyone else has listed? Breaking
Bad, Arrested Development, etc. Also the BBC version of Sherlock,
and I'm really late to the game on watching The West Wing.
MUSIC - sooooooooooooooooooo many. Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, The
Magnetic Fields, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Cure, Sisters of Mercy,
Christian Death, Wolfsheim, De/Vision, Concrete Blonde, Peter
Murphy, Depeche Mode, Richard Hell, The Dresden Dolls, Mates of
State, Jack White, The Kills, BRMC, The Polyphonic Spree, The
Donnas, it goes on and on and on and on
