I love Brett Easton Ellis, Paul Auster, Haruki Murakami, Erlend Loe, Hanif Kureishi...
Wristcutters, Donnie Darko, High Fidelity, Rushmore, Perks of Being A Wallflowers etc.
The Wire is the best show ever. And possibly the best thing ever.. Also love Deadwood, Firefly, Buffy, Justified, Lost [before they ruined it], Rubicon, Forbrydelsen, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, any of the Charlie Brooker's somethingwipes.
Drive By Truckers, The Gaslight Anthem, Two Cow Garage, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Ryan Adams, Lucinda Williams, The Hold Steady, Arcade Fire, Joy Division etc.
Podcasts are cool and I spend quite a lot of time with earphones on listening most probably to either Nerdist or Skeptic's Guide To The Universe.
Food is ok too.
