Books: I'm a bibliophile but I mostly enjoy non-fiction type stuff
like works by Jared Diamond or John K. Galbraith. Other than that I
love good satire (e.g. A Clockwork Orange or The Short Timers(You
can read it online, just google it)) I try to emulate Kurt Vonnegut
with my own recreational writing which are mostly journal entries.
Just think of what kind of life I must live where I'm having
journal entries reminiscent of Slaughterhouse Five.
Movies: I loved beasts of the Southern Wild but I mostly stick to
Satire for my favorites. My life wouldn't be what it is now if it
wasn't for Office Space. Kubrick does well on my list. and Dr.
Strangelove, and A Clockwork Orange make for a good night. Just
telling a good story in general can work for me too though, try to
top City of God.
Shows: Thanks to the 21st Century (Hulu and Youtube) I always get
way too into things when I finally find something I like then it
gets old in like a week, and since I haven't had a T.V. in a decade
it's always something that's gone off the air by the time I've even
heard of it.
What comes to mind first is The Wire, which is probably the only
non-comedy show I like.
I just found a brit-com called Peep-Show which hit the spot,
finally got into Adventure Time and Trailer Park Boys was one of
the first shows I liked in a while when I first saw it last
I know you probably think It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is
awesome but that show is pretty hit or miss. That episode with Gail
the Snail is one of the best things I'd seen on any show that year
and I'm pretty sure there's footage somewhere of me and someone
else performing Nightman for the troops a few years back.
Music: Fell in love with Motown again but I notice that I just
can't be one of those people who likes everything by any artist,
it's always one or two songs that do it for me.
Some that come to mind are I want to Take You Higher-Sly and The
Family Stone. Standing in the Shadow of Love-The Four Tops.
September-Earth, Wind, and Fire. Fern-Zoe Keating. Tamacun-Rodrigo
Y Gabriella. Where it's At-Beck. What You Know Bout Dat-T.I. Gimmie
Shelter-The Rolling Stones.
Food: Really lately, anything that's not triple processed bullshit
from a vending machine or a McDonalds. Eating that stuff can mess
