Books: Chuck Klosterman is probably my favorite author right now. I
beg you to read The Visible Man. I tend to read a lot of
non-fiction. Recently I read The Last Policeman series. They
changed me somehow. Just amazing amazing books. I even ended up
getting a tattoo about them. Also, I, a grown, bearded, straight
male, unabashedly and unashamedly bawled my eyes out the whole way
through The Fault In Our Stars. I also really really dig Calvin and
Hobbes (who doesn't).
Movies: I love everything Wes Anderson and Pixar - and I'm a big
fan of documentaries. Ghostbusters is my favorite movie. I really
dig Sam Rockwell. I prefer Life Aquatic to Tenenbaums - deal with
it. I like movies about the apocalypse and robots - hopefully a mix
of the two. I dig musicals, 80's action movies, zombie movies, and
movies with subtitles.
Shows: Fringe is probably my favorite show of all time?
Music: Everclear, CAKE, Jukebox the Ghost, Electric Light
Orchestra, The Beatles, Dire Straits, Otis Redding, Cat Stevens,
Boston, The Postal Service, Regina Spektor, Clem Snide, Ingrid
Michaelson, Harry Chapin, Rush, Pomplamoose, REO Speedwagon, Daft
Punk. Anywhere from singer/songwriter stuff, to ska, to adult
contemporary, to acoustic indie stuff, to power ballads - all over
Food: Breakfast food, sushi, blueberries, Fresca, broccoli and
cheese, hot wings, baked macaroni and cheese, Ben & Jerry's,
anything novelty (eg.: Limited Edition, New Flavor, etc.)
