Books: Pretty much anything by Chuck Klosterman, especially
"Killing Yourself to Live". I also really enjoyed Youth in Revolt,
The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and so many others. I'm currently
reading Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace
Music: Death Cab, The Decemberists, Bon Iver, The Smiths, City and
Colour, The Shins, Band of Horses, Modest Mouse, Elliott Smith,
Jimmy Eat World, The Promise Ring...you get the idea.
I love watching terrible horror movies. Some other favorites are
Rushmore, Memento, Pulp Fiction, The Life Aquatic, Shaun of the
Dead (and pretty much any zombie movie).
If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life, it would
probably be pancakes. In fact, I could live off of brunch.
