I go through phases where I don't watch much TV, but I actually
kinda love it. I've been seriously entertained by Breaking Bad,
House of Cards, and Game of Throwns in the last couple years. And I
love(d) Colbert as well as Jon Stewart and Bill Maher. Wondering
who will replace Stewart... Anyhow, I like good shows. So do you
hopefully. I used to think Reality TV was the devil (err, just
plain lame), and while I essentially still dislike it, over time
I've come to realize that's maybe because it's so unrealistic. Like
the old adage, art mimics life, maybe same holds true for life
imitating art. Sorta like Facebook and such. In real life, we tend
to publicly feature only the best parts. It takes fiction to admit
what's really going on.
Too many good movies to list. Love anything by Wes Anderson (even
if that's trite, and even if his recent stuff isn't as good), and
many things by many others. Wish I could have lived Romancing the
Stone. A while back, Drive rocked my world, and I saw it twice in
the theater (unusual for me).
As for books, I am not a voracious reader of late (other than
reading and writing all day at work), especially of fiction. (Ha -
based on above, I guess I get my fiction fix from TV). If only I
had a year off to get through The Infinite Jest... DFW rules.
Music: again, too much to list. A few big likes in the last 5 years
that come to mind are Neutral Milk Hotel, Dandy Warhols, Tapes n'
Tapes, Eleanor Friedberger, Edward Sharpe, Grizzly Bear, LCD
Soundsystem, Au Revoir Simone, Animal Collective (even though they
say Panda Bear is cooler), Suicide, Vampire Weekend, Santigold,
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah. All time faves? Velvet Underground, Simon
and Garfunkel, Joy Division, Jane's Addiction, Jimi Hendrix, etc.
to the power of infinity. I also like jazz and classical.
