(One day I will fully re-work this summary, but I don't think today's that day.)
Well, I graduated with a master's degree in English, and now I'm in film school. So. That's a thing that happened.
Except these days I find myself more often than not twisting it into an inconspicuous bun, so I guess I should figure out a new thing.
Comics: Ongoing: Sex Criminals, Saga, Black Widow, Daredevil, The Fade Out, Bitch Planet.
Classics: Preacher, Hellblazer, Blue Monday, Scott Pilgrim, Hawkeye (Fraction/Aja & co.), She-Hulk (Soule/Pulido & co.), Secret Avengers (Kot/Walsh).

Demented, Rocky Horror Picture Show & Singles. I will also watch most pre-code movies I can get my hands on at least once.
TV: Black Books, The Mighty Boosh, The Young Ones, Monty Python's Flying Circus, United States of Tara, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Deadwood, Southland, Soap, Halt and Catch Fire.
Music: SO MUCH MUSIC. There used to be a long list here but I took it out because it ended up being mostly an unhelpful wall of text. Let me just state that I'm not picky about genres, but I'm picky within genres.
Music. Music has played a major part in the process of me becoming who I am today. Plus it serves as a good element of distraction at times.
My loved ones. Also known as family and friends. The people I keep coming back to even though they sometimes annoy the hell out of me.
Reading. Escapism = love. (Also love = escapism? But that is a different matter entirely.)
Being happy at times. Quite self-explanatory. I don't have to be happy all the time, but being happy sometimes really is quite nice.
& Laughter. Both mine and that of others. I don't consider myself all that funny, but I get a warm fuzzy feeling from making people laugh. And I like laughing myself, which might explain the prominence of comedies (and stuff that's known for having a humour aspect to it) in my "Favourites" section.
(The new school year has been rewarding but tiring so far.)
Also, if there is a song/book/movie/poem/cookie you think I would really like if I'd only heard about it, and you want to be the person who alerts me to the existence of this wondrous thing.
