BOOKS: "American Gods" by Neil Gaiman, "Shades of Grey" by Jasper
Fforde (please note that this book is NOT 50 Shades of Grey!
Fforde's "Shades of Grey" is a wholly other work, in a very
different genre, by an utterly brilliant author), "Jennifer
Government" by Max Barry, "A Song of Ice and Fire" series by George
R.R. Martin, "The Kingkiller Chronicle" series by Patrick
Those are some of my favorites, but I'm a voracious reader. I enjoy
contemporary fiction, feminist and gender theory, social
commentary, political satire, philosophical literature, social
movement theories, historical fiction and nonfiction,
science-fiction, fantasy, and dystopian literature.
Graphic Novels: The Sandman, Transmetropolitan, The Boys, Fables,
The Books of Magic.
Webcomics (new and old!): xkcd, Questionable Content, A Softer
World, Oglaf, Queen of Wands, Venus Envy, Grayling, Perry Bible
Fellowship, Dinosaur Comics, Sexy Losers.
Fierce Creatures, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, He Died with a Felafel
in His Hand, Clerks, Blazing Saddles, Fargo, Clue.
Anything released after 2001 is apparently dead to me and does not
fit my cinematic aesthetic.
TV: Parenthood, Archer, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, How I Met Your
Mother, Daria, Venture Bros., Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Buffy the
Vampire Slayer, Todd and the Book of Pure Evil.
Music: Florence + the Machine, The Dreadnoughts, Muse, Lily Allen.
I listen to Bootie Mashups at work most days.
