According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal, John Dies at the End,
This Book is Full of Spiders, The Man in the High Castle, The
Poisonwood Bible, and Oryx & Crake (and its sequels The Year of
the Flood and Maddaddam). I'm a big fan of Kurt Vonnegut because
he, like me, tends to look at the world in a unique way.
I watch quite a few movies. Some favorites are: Pulp Fiction, Repo!
The Genetic Opera, The Dark Knight, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,
Braveheart, Dead Man, Youth in Revolt, Dog Day Afternoon, Gangs of
New York, The Departed, Chinatown, and Last of the Mohicans.
Watching movies on Netflix is a staple of my Saturday
The Red Hot Chili Peppers are my favorite band. I also like Johnny
Cash, Placebo, Led Zeppelin, the Buena Vista Social Club, Willie
Nelson, GNR, Vampire Weekend, Ludo, The Smiths, The Wallflowers,
and Jack Johnson to give a random smattering. Mindless Self
Indulgence is pretty awesome too. I don't much care for country or
Indian, Eastern Mediterranean (Lebanese), Mexican and Italian. I
also love German food if I can ever find a good place to get some.
I cook, and am pretty good at throwing stuff together. Last year, I
started using recipes! Now my life is delicious! Also, if you know
what jamon iberico is and agree with me that it is awesome, we
could probably have a good talk about delicious hams.
Daily Show, the Colbert Report, South Park, Frasier, Seinfeld, How
I Met Your Mother, Family Guy, Simpsons, American Dad, and Scrubs.
I don't watch anything on the television, really, but sometimes
download episodes of these shows on the internet or my BluRay
player, which is magical.
