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. Candide or The Short Timers(You can read it
online, just google it)). Got a kindle this year so I've been
getting stupid with the poli sci stuff.
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. Breaking Bad was just okay, and I watched
one episode of Mad Men and started wondering what's wrong with TV
these days that this show has good ratings?
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
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.
