Currently reading: "Hang the DJ" by Angus Cargill
Movies: Adaptation, Amelie, The Big Lebowski (anything Coen), Wet Hot American Summer, Cabin in the Woods, Oldboy, Wizard People Dear Readers, and a ton of horror movies offset by various documentaries and comedies until I can sleep again. I just started a blog where I pair beers and movies and decide which one is better. I'll post the link if it becomes super popular and being associated with it endears you to me.
Music: I will save time by just directing you to http://www.last.fm/user/Wormwood37/
(Though, a top XX list would have The Mountain Goats, Neutral Milk Hotel, Built to Spill, Pavement, Wu-Tang Clan, Mirah, Tom Waits, Belle and Sebastian, Spiritualized, Bob Dylan, Yo La Tengo, Beat Happening, Nick Cave, NWA, and The Lucksmiths). I kind of have a soft spot for songs that are more like short stories, witty lyrics, 15 minute metal songs, old folk songs where people die, and indie pop with ukuleles.
Shows: 30 Rock, the IT Crowd, Game of Thrones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the Daily Show, Doctor Who, Peep Show, Strangers with Candy, Louie, the Simpsons. Basically things where funny words are written and then said out loud in a humorous way (with occasional breaks for time travel and/or wizards).
Food: I believe sandwiches to be the world's most perfect food. But sometimes you just need a big ol' burrito, pizza, or a plate of pad thai, or sushi or something. Also: exploring and finding new local eateries is the sport of kings. And eating most of these things with a nice craft beer is a worthwhile enterprise, as well.
When this profile was written, I was getting over a wicked cold, and was playing scrabble with my old roommate while we watched stand-up DVDs.
