I admit it: I don't read a whole lot. I'm not necessarily an
uncultured dude, I just don't have a great attention span. I prefer
to read online. For some reason, it can hold my attention better
than hardbacks can. I don't really have a favorite book, though.
Some of the best literature ever crafted is wondering around on the
As far as movies go: The Celluloid Closet, Pulp Fiction, The Dark
Knight Trilogy, Philadelphia, Moneyball, Milk, I Love You Phillip
Morris, God Bless America, 1408, Terri, Life of Brian, Most of
Kevin Smith's movies (esp. Clerks, Dogma, and Jersey Girl), The
Coen Brothers' catalogue (especially Burn After Reading, The Big
Lebowski, and O Brother Where Art Thou?), Quentin Tarantino's long
list of successes (esp. Reservoir Dogs and Inglorious Basterds),
and probably a lot of stuff I haven't seen yet.
When it comes to TV: Breaking Bad is one of the greatest shows in
television history. I don't care how many people have said that
before; it doesn't make it any less true. The Daily Show, The
Colbert Report, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Sportscenter, House,
DBZ, Paranoia Agent, Push Nevada, blah, bleh, bluh.
I'm not as big into music as I used to be, but: Cake, Sublime,
Zombie Ghost Train, Streetlight Manifesto, Chase Long Beach, Rev.
Horton Heat, Psychostick, Primus, Jonathan Coulton, Soul Coughing,
Harvey Danger, Molotov, Spiderbait, Gorillaz, Great Big Sea,
Metric, Beck, Eric Clapton, Bad Brains, Save Ferris, Reel Big Fish,
Weezer, Toadies, System of a Down, Rage Against The Machine,
Volbeat, Pavement, Pixies, The Cribs, and I know I'm leaving a
bunch of shit out. That's a good enough list though, right?
And I'll eat anything. Keep your shit safe, man. I'll destroy it.
