Name of the Wind, Song of Ice and Fire, everything David Sedaris
and anything by Sarah Vowell. Kurt Vonnegut is deep down in my
heart (and across my collar bone). David Rakoff, Anthony Bourdain,
the occasional travel memoir.
I'm pretty down with the New 52. I LOVED All Star Batman and Robin,
and want them to finish it up in a big bad way. Old Man Logan and
Hawkeye (current) are my favorite Marvelverse books. Neil Gaiman
Kevin Smith is one of my favorite people in the world, and
everything he's done is magic. Comic book movies in general,
though, I think the only technically "good" ones are Iron Man and
Nolan's Batman (as far as live action; animated Batman is the
shit). The Departed and Perfume are two favorites. So are Love,
Actually and Hard Candy. Judd Apatow's movies make me laugh, I know
they're formulaic and I don't give a damn.
EDIT: Captain America Winter Soldier is now my favorite Marvel
Comics movie. Holy mother of fuck, that was amazing.
Side note: how old fashioned is the phrase "give a damn?"
Really though, my taste in movies is all over the place. I don't do
well with horror, unless it's very fantasy or sci-fi charged. Even
then, I'm a big damn cotton candy ass about it. But, through my
fingers or no, if it's worth watching, I can be convinced.
Shows I'm not self conscious about liking: Game of Thrones, the
League, Community, Firefly, Cowbop Bebop, House of Cards, In the
Thick of It, Orange is the New Black, Arrested Development, Anthony
Bourdain's anything, the Daily Show, the Colbert Report, the Rachel
Maddow Show, Kroll Show, Archer, the West Wing, Veep,
Shows that are guilty pleasures, but I don't give a fuck: Agents of
Shield, Arrow, Real Time with Bill Maher, the Soup, South Park,
Parks and Rec, Castle.
Show's that are guilty pleasure, and I cast my eyes downward when I
admit to liking them: Hemlock Grove, True Blood, the Big Bang
Theory, How I Met Your Mother, New Girl, American Dad, (sometimes)
Family Guy, Iron Chef, Brooklyn 99.
Cake, Death From Above, Eagles of Death Metal. Mogwai, Love and
Rockets, Kasabian. Leonard Cohen, Lou Reed, Tom Waits. Gorillaz,
Atmosphere, Mac Lethal. Brendan Benson, Alexi Murdoch, Blind Pilot.
Special mention: No Doubt, Offspring and the Bloodhound Gang. I
WILL NEVER STOP LOVING YOU.
Most anything Asian; Thai and sushi at the top of the list.
Italian, which I never let myself eat because I will immediately
gain ten pounds. Everything Mexican, soul food? Cajun and-- you
know what? This is getting ridiculous I really like everything.
Except for Chicago style pizza. There's not a lot Jonny Stew and I
