Books: Just finished reading 'On the Road' by Jack Kerouac. About
to start 'Life of Pi' while traveling. Before that it was a bunch
of Bret Easton Ellis and Chuck Palahniuk stuff.
Movies: I love Danny Boyle movies. 28 Days Later, Sunshine,
Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire and such. He's directed a wide
range of genres and I love that about his films. Also loved
Superbad, Ghostbusters, and American Psycho.
Music: Grew up on the punk genre. So in chronological order from
the age of 13: Nirvana, Green Day, Ramones, Blink 182, 88 Fingers
Louie, Screeching Weasel, Operation Ivy, Minor Threat, Fugazi,
Catch 22, Streetlight Manifesto, The Slackers, Rise Against,
Leftover Crack, Citizen Fish, Against Me!, Lillingtons, The
Riverdales, Hot Water Music, Methadones, Defiance Ohio, Bomb the
Music Industry, The Menzingers, and now Gaslight Anthem.
Against Me!, Hot Water Music, and Screeching Weasel probably had
the most impact. I also listen to other stuff. Explosions in the
Sky, Sigur Ros, Avett Brothers, Steve Aoki, Chuck Ragan and etc.
