Special Topics in Calamity Physics, The Magicians, The Secret
History. Apparently I love novels where a smart outsider
ingratiates themselves into a small, hyper-intelligent group of
kids who drink too much.
The Thin Man, The Third Man, In the Company of Men. This April I
watched 15 movies in 5 days, and I could have done better.
Breaking Bad, Bob's Burgers, Children's Hospital. I may be from
Baltimore, but I think The Shield is better than The Wire.
Angel Olsen, Diarrhea Planet, The Detroit Cobras. I have listened
to Le Tigre's "Deceptacon" at least 30 times in the past couple
Savory ricotta, sweet chili, spicy nuts. My tolerance for spice is
reaching dangerous levels.
Bourbon, hoppy beer, grapefruit juice. I have a pet theory that
beer preferences split by gender.
Bill Burr, Kyle Kinane, Tig Notaro. John Hodgman recently yelled at
me because I was unfamiliar with late nineteenth century eye
Stupid Fucking Bird, The Motherfucker with the Hat, Othello. I have
a t-shirt that has a picture of a cartoon Shakespeare ripping apart
a Cliff's Notes, and it wasn't a gift.
