heaven, the thin red line, old boy, lots more.
tv: dexter, the thick of it, peep show, it's always sunny in
philadelphia, sons of anarchy, no reservations, boardwalk empire,
bored to death. i don't know: sometimes i like sublimating my brain
in a thick, syrupy suspension of awful TV.
and eating is my favorite recreation (on par with sports). I'll try
anything. i've had brains, snake, dog, gator, cockroach, brains,
ants, squirrel, goat testicles, haggis...
