Books: Dostoevsky(particularly Notes from the Underground),
Vonnegut, Douglas Adams, Fables, Watchmen, We3, Walking Dead, the
Song of Ice and Fire, Saga. I think Y the Last Man is one of the
finest written things to exist.
TV: Arrested Development, The Simpsons, Its Always Sunny, The
Venture Bros, Doctor Who, Archer, Firefly, Community, Parks and
Rec, Sherlock. I think the three shows that most influenced my
personality are the Simpsons, MST3K and Late Night With Conan
Movies: This is Spinal Tap, The Usual Suspects, The Dark Knight,
RoboCop, Kurosawa movies, Clerks, Adaptation, Eternal Sunshine of
the Spotless Mind, Hard Boiled, pretty much anything by Studio
Ghibli, Hot Fuzz. Also terrible movies like The Room and
Music: Eclectic to say the least. I guess standbys are usually old
punk, preferable those that predate my ability to speak English,
Nofx, The Clash, The Ramones, Bad Religion Dead Kennedys, etc. Also
Daft Punk, Cake, Kraftwerk, Ben Folds, Gorillaz, St. Vincent,
I also, frankly, listen to far too many podcasts:
Comedy Bang Bang, The Nerdist, The Indoor Kids, Doug Loves Movies,
and How Did this Get Made? to name a few. Also probably everything
within 2 degrees of separation from these.
