Mostly postmodern lit--Kurt Vonnegut and Toni Morrison are some of
my favorites. Right now I'm reading a lot more non-fiction
though...mostly news/science articles and the occasional book on
any topic that piques my interest (a lot of archaeology and
neuroscience lately). I also just started reading James Michener's
"Caribbean" which is a brilliant melding of fact and fiction.
I like a wide variety of movies. I typically rank dramas at the top
of the list (American History X, Shawshank Redemption, American
Beauty, King of Masks). Followed by classic funny movies (Dumb and
Dumber, Wedding Crashers, etc.) and of course I can't forget the
occasional Disney movie that I watch when I'm feeling nostalgic
(Beauty and the Beast, Lion King). I'm also a sucker for period
pieces or historical fiction.
Really into Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Sons of Anarchy, Daily
Show, and Californication these days. Just started getting into
Game of Thrones. Also a big fan of Shark Week and I don't know if
anyone remembers Freaks and Geeks or Trigger Happy TV but those
were two of my favorites that were cut off before their time!
I'm all over the place with this one. I'll listen to just about
every genre from pop to rock to folk to classical. I suppose I have
a soft spot for the stuff I grew up listening to--The White
Stripes, Pearl Jam, etc. I'm a pretty big fan of Red Hot Chili
Peppers, Train, Muse, The Killers, The Black Keys as well as some
folksier stuff like Blitzen Trapper and sometimes the
Anything spicy! I'm a particularly big fan of Thai and
Central/South American and West Indian.
