I've realized many of my favorite bands are middle-aged power-pop
groups who wear their Beatle influences proudly (see: Cheap Trick,
Shoes, The Smithereens, The Minus 5). If "uncle rock" is a
legitimate genre, put me on the mailing list.
Books: Fight Club, Our Band Could Be Your Life, 1984, American
Psycho, Tipping the Velvet. I just finished "Gone Girl"
(brilliantly disturbing, disturbingly brilliant), and I'm currently
reading a Leonard Cohen biography. My reading list is about 12
books deep after that. Life's too short not to always have a book
Films: Help!, Good Will Hunting, Tourfilm, No Country For Old Men,
Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive and Lost Highway (really, anything
David Lynch has done). Happiness is also a favorite, so if you've
seen others by Todd Solondz, go ahead and send me a recommendation
in all caps to convince me it's a must-see.
TV: Arrested Development, Weeds, Mad Men, It's Always Sunny in
Philadelphia. Seinfeld will never be topped.
