favorite books: "The Sound and the Fury", "A Brief History of
Time", "Lolita", "Cosmicomics", and "The Road". right now i'm
mostly reading nonfiction, "no logo", noam chomsky, fast food
nation, etc. my favorite books on tape include the David Sedaris
box set, John Hodgman's "the Areas of my Expertise" (I really
appreciate John Hodgman in all mediums), Philip K. Dick' "A Scanner
Darkly" and "I am America and so can You". oh and occasionally I'll
read a comic if one catches my eye at the thrift (X-men's my
favorite probably because of the nostalgia it evokes, but I also
enjoy The Walking Dead).
Movies: Terry Gilliam, Wes Anderson, The Coen Brothers, The
Sanitarium Under the Sign of the Hourglass(that's my pretentious
film school pick), ghostbusters (the first one, that sequel was
bullshit). I'll watch almost any sci-fi movie (I blame that on my
father, he raised me on it). Anything with a Rifftrax.
Music: All kinds; talking heads, pixies and Neil Young always
favorites. I've grown to love music with a bluegrass influence such
as the Be Good Tanyas, Okkervil River, and Steve Earle. Currently
T. Rex and Big Star are getting a lot of play as well. Plus really
cheesy stuff like meatloaf (again my father is to blame here, I was
the only second grader who knew all the lyrics to "Bat Out of
Hell"). I like to be open-minded when it comes to music.
Food: Anything with chocolate and peanut butter, OJ, Bananas, dosas
from Vik's and anything I make myself. My new favorite thing to
make is Pot Pie, I made my first one a couple weeks ago and it's
becoming an important part of my repertoire.
Television: Futurama!!!, Cosmos (Carl Sagan is hypnotic) Arrested
Development, The Wire, lost. I also enjoy NOVA and BBC Horizon. I
think Louie is genius, so surreal and dark.
