My nine to five is more of a two in the afternoon till eleven. On the plus side it's only four days a week.
I did a hundred poems in a hundred days, which finished up a couple months ago. I was thinking I'd make it a daily grind, but I've sidetracked myself with a different project for the time being. For those curious: https://halfsohappy.wordpress.com/
Glen Duncan produces a sort of thoughtful pulp fiction that I can't seem to get enough of. The fact that two of his books have amazing soundtracks (I, Lucifer and The Last Werewolf) by one of my favorite musicians doesn't hurt his standing with me either. I'd be remiss to not mention Milan Kundera as well. Immortality was a book that changed the way I look at the world.
Jean Paul Jeunet's films epitomize for me what that tired old phrase 'movie magic' truly means. Some of my other favorites include Cashback, The Exploding Girl, Stranger than Fiction, Her, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Howl's Moving Castle, Shoot 'Em Up, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and the LotR trilogy.
The Venture Brothers is easily my favorite thing still on TV. I was a cartoon junkie growing up and a couple years back I got into anime. Some favorites in that medium include Acchi Kocchi, Black Lagoon, The Tatami Galaxy, Hyouka, Toradora, and Cross Game. My Anime List
