Book: The Giver, Americanah, Bossypants, What is the What, Friday
Night Lights, anything by Kafka. I'm actually a lot more well-read
than this list implies, but it's been a while since I've read any
fiction, sadly, and I'm blanking at the command to regurgitate my
Movie: So many to write. The same goes for television shows as

Orange is the New Back.
Video Games: Metal Gear Solid, Sims 2, Ape Escape 1-3, Team
Buddies, Legend of Dragoon (if only for the awesome menu music that
I jam to), NHL 2000-2012, Gran Turismo (Damn you, ia license!),
Batman, Infamous, GTA IV)
Music: Michael Jackson (of course), Steely Dan, Rolling Stones,
Elton John, Anita Baker, Finnish Music (don't hate), R&B, some
RAP (even the "mindless droll" people claim they to hate yet dance
to and know-all-of the-words-when-they're-drunk kind). In all
honesty, I'll give anything an ear.
