Thomas Pynchon and David Foster Wallace are pretty great. Also
Calvin And Hobbes, because childhood. Michael Kupperman's
"Autobiography Of Mark Twain 1910-2010" is probably the funniest
book I've ever read.
For movies, I'm a huge Woody Allen geek. Manhattan is too
good...it's just, ugh it's so good. I also love Brazil, La Jetee,
Vertigo, There Will Be Blood, Chinatown, Rashomon, La Strada,
Christopher Nolan's Batman films, and The Jerk.
Breaking Bad and The Simpsons have consumed more of my time than
I'd care to admit. I also love Conan O'Brien's assorted shows, Mr.
Show,the Peanuts specials, Arrested Development, Parks and
Recreation, and the 3 1/2 seasons of The Wire I've watched so far.
I'm also a newly minted Doctor Who geek. Oops!
Jack White is wonderful, as is Holly Golightly. I also spend a lot
of time listening to The Thermals because they remind me of the
Northwest, and Pinkerton because I'm perpetually 17 I guess.
I think cookies are way better than cupcakes and I'm not afraid to
say it! I don't care WHOSE toes I step on!
