I absolutely love T.S. Eliot and I enjoy Ogden Nash. I also like
Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. Sometimes I think James Joyce's
Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man and F.S. Fitzgerald's This
Side of Paradise are eerily similar to my life in certain respects.
Musically, I like the Airborne Toxic Event, but I listen to a lot
of different things depending on my mood, John Prine, Feist, Of
Montreal, Jack's Mannequin, Sugarcult, and The Pogues, just to name
a few. My newest obsessions are rockabilly and female
singer/songwriters. So far as television shows go, the only thing I
really watch regularly are certain comedic shows like Community,
SNL, and Workaholics, although my newest obsession is HBO's The
Newsroom. I'm also a big fan of Shintaro Katsu as Zatoichi and the
classic Cantonese bullet ballet "Exiled", so far as
English-speaking movies though, Boondock Saints series, and then
mostly older classics like the Bridge over the River Kwai and Shoes
of the Fisherman.
I must confess that I'm a bit of a comic book nerd. I love a lot of
Vertigo comics, my absolute favorite being Hellblazer. I only like
certain comics though, they have to fit within a certain idea of
I recently found out that Hellblazer is ending its run and
re-issuing it as "Constantine" to fit within the new 52 universe. I
do not know how I feel about this other than terribly upset that
Hellblazer is ending.
