I have a sarcastic sense of humor. But I turn that off when necessary.
I wrote/directed three short films that The 48 Hour Film Project described all three as "Meeting submittal requirements".
I use Twitter as a test audience for my comedic material. Its easier and cheaper than going to the comedy clubs and hearing crickets.
Trivia. It's one of those things where you're happy you've won gift cards out of the deal, but then when you realize that you won it by sitting in a slightly darkened room and knowing that the fountain that they dance around in during the theme song to "Friends" is the same fountain that Charleton Heston falls into when he gets shot in "Last Man on Earth"...and it takes some of the bragging rights away from it.
Movies: Early-era and more recent Woody Allen movies, Hitchcock films (Except for "Hitchcock" the Will Smith movie and "Hitchcock" the Anthony Hopkins version) comedies mostly, a lot of indie films, Buy the Ticket, Take the Ride, and The Room, because its the total opposite of a perfect film, yet still amazing.
Music: kind of a tricky one. A lot of old stuff (Sam Cooke, The Beatles, some Motown, Otis Redding, Queen, early bluesy Rolling Stones, blues music in general, Billie Holliday) a few Top 40 songs at any given time, and a lot of indie bands (Detroit Cobras, Those Transatlantics, Bishop Allen, Heartless Bastards, Little Joy, etc) I'm all over the map. I listen to anything really but country music.
Shows: John Oliver, Daily Show, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Real Time, Arrested Development, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Archer, Family Guy, The Simpsons, and Spaced. I'm wholly aware that a majority of these are no longer on the air, but still. Classics are classics for a fairly good reason.
