Favorite authors is a shorter list than favorite books---Willy
Vlautin, T. S. Eliot, George R. R. Martin and Chuck
Movies—Lately my favorite film is Rubber, this cutely sardonic
piece about a psychic tire. I'll rewatch anything directed by
Coppola, and I'll never turn down a Tom Cruise vehicle (his role in
Tropic Thunder was phenomenal).
Shows—At the risk of revealing how cliched I am, my favorite drama
in recent memory was Breaking Bad. I'm totally gripped by The
Walking Dead since accidentally catching the season premiere a
couple of Sundays ago.
Music—I'm shamelessly in love with My Chemical Romance. I will
probably never not be. Lately I just got back into a band called
God or Julie when I learned they're actually still somewhat active.
Andy Hull (Manchester Orchestra and Bad Books) is a favorite artist
of mine, as is Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!, mostly, and a solo
album under the name Tom Gabel). Other than those couple of
favorites, when I'm at home alone I normally put some Romantic-era
piano on and just let it be. When I'm out and about I tend have a
mixture of indie, folk-rock/folk-punk and melodic hard rock in my
Food—The surest way to my heart is through my ribcage. After that,
it's good tex-mex. Or stroganoff.
