Firefly: I love me some Whedon, is what I'm saying.
Mad Men, Breaking Bad, 30 Rock, Arrested Development.
Friday Night Lights is one of the most rewarding experiences I've had with a television show and don't you dare laugh at me for crying at the finale.
Memento is a movie that really matters to me. Cool Hand Luke is unequivocally a movie that matters as well as being a Movie That Matters. Paul Newman might be my favorite American movie star. Movies I could turn on and enjoy at nearly any time include: 10 Things I Hate About You, A Few Good Men, Good Will Hunting.
A few books that matter to me for various reasons: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Cloud Atlas, Life of Pi, Sex, Drugs and Cocoa Puffs. I have a firm connection to Hamlet that I don't think will ever go away. There isn't a number high enough for the amount of books I keep intending to read and don't get around to.
Bands I currently listen to: The Weakerthans, Neutral Milk Hotel, Wilco, Robyn, The Cure, Passion Pit, Kendrick Lamar, The Front Bottoms, Against Me!

-Copious amounts of sleep.
- I'll get back to you on the rest.
Also the economy.
