Movies - Somewhat of a snob when it comes to comedy. I like smart
ones like Superbad, Orange County, and I Heart Huckabees and dumb
ones like Airplane, Top Secret and Not Another Teen Movie. I'm
pretty easy to please in every other genre.
TV - The Office was the show that made me want to write, though I
have stopped paying attention to it as of late. My true favorites
are Always Sunny, Family Guy, and The Colbert Report. As much as I
hate hearing other people say this - I have started watching a lot
of British comedy recently. Given the choice, I will always opt for
a Seinfeld re-run before any of these.
Books - The last novel I read for pleasure was probably Hatchet by
Gary Paulson (~8th grade) or something in the Matt Christopher
canon. The books I gravitate towards are typically the more
scientific ones like The Selfish Gene, Guns Germs and Steel, and At
The Water's Edge. That said, I am attempting James Joyce's Ulysses
at the moment. Sometimes I'll just curl up by the fire and read the
iTunes User Agreement or a good Adobe Licensing Update.
Music - Pretty much like it all (including country) but classic
rock is certainly my favorite genre. Springsteen, Seger, CCR,
Petty, Zeppelin. Bob Dylan never misses in my opinion and I own 18
Van Morrison albums. I'm also pretty into the SportsCenter theme
