I don't want this to be a wall of text but here's some important
ones for me:
Anything by Vonnegut, Murakami, or Klosterman. Lester Bangs is a
twisted genius. I think Kerouac is a windbag. Give me Hunter S
Thompson, Ken Kesey, or Tom Wolf if you want some real on the road
Manhattan, Eternal Sunshine, Royal Tenenbaums, Back To The Future,
Smokey & The Bandit.
Mr. Show, Arrested Development, Mystery Science Theater, How It's
Made, Tim & Eric and Tom Goes to The Mayor and shit really
anything on Adult Swim.
People I think are funny: Bob Odenkirk, Chris Gethard, H. Jon
Benjamin, Kurt Braunohler, Tim Heidecker & Eric Wareheim, David
Cross, Dana Gould, Patton Oswalt, Louis CK, Dan Harmon, Robert
Smeigel, Zucker Abrams Zucker and their collected works.
Guided By Voices, Fugazi, They Might Be Giants, Pavement, DEVO,
Superchunk, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Ween, Miles Davis'
Kind of Blue, Yo La Tengo, Belle & Sebastian, Sloan, The Fall,
Van Morrison, Billy Joel (unironically), Led Goddamn
Eggplant parm subs, pad thai, fish & chips from somewhere near
the ocean, peanut butter & jelly anything, breakfast foods for
dinner, sushi, Cheerios, bagels (either as main course or as bread
in a sandwich).

up in Jersey City. Best Show on WMFU 4 lyfe. Support public
