Music (current): The Cramps, Dag Nasty, Screaming Females, lots of

Neko Case, The Minus 5, Pixies, Wilco, GBV, Husker Du, Radiohead,
The Raveonettes, Jesus and Mary Chain, Ani DiFranco, Deerhunter,
and the type of power-pop that I can only call "uncle rock" (Cheap
Trick, Shoes, The Smithereens, Material Issue, Fountains of Wayne).
Basically if you know that John Waters quote about books, I feel
that way about music, too.
But also books. Favorites include Our Band Could Be Your Life,
1984, American Psycho, Tipping the Velvet, most of Chuck
Palahniuk's stuff. Currently reading "Men Explain Things to Me" by
Rebecca Solnit, and my reading list is about 25 books deep after
Films: Help!, Good Will Hunting, Tourfilm, No Country For Old Men,
Blue Velvet, Mulholland Drive and Lost Highway (ok, anything David
Lynch). Happiness is also a favorite, so if you've seen others by
Todd Solondz, go ahead and send me a recommendation for which one I
should see next.
TV: Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, Broad City,
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Garfunkel and Oates. Seinfeld remains
the all-time favorite, because it's good for your soul.
