political horror films, epics, documentaries about radical
resistance movements and cultures, like Kanehsatake. I like
Spaghetti Westerns, films about the Mexico/US Border,

True Blood is a guilty pleasure. I know, I know, it's terrible,
trashy TV, but I don't have a television and I never will and

suffering is just so good. I also like Breaking Bad and the Daily
Show and. The Wire and Oz and Six Feet Under are old
