Favorite bands :
Miles Davis, Primus, Chumbawamba, Coheed and Cambria, David Bowie's 'Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars' (not a big fan of most of his other work), Bloc Party, Yellowcard (but not their recent work), The Get Up Kids, Akira the Don, The Shins, Band of Horses, Colonel Claypool's Fearless Flying Frog Brigade, and The Who.
Favorite guitarists :
Larry LaLonde, Buckethead, Pete Townshend, and Buck Dharma.
Favorite bassists :
Les Claypool (!), John Entwhistle, and Geddy Lee.
Favorite books :
Flowers for Algernon, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, the Harry Potter series, Ender's Game, Ender's Shadow, and The Godfather.
Favorite tv :
Monty Python's Flying Circus. But seeing as this is no longer on television besides PBS, I'd have to say the only good current show is King of The Hill. All else sucks.
Favorite movies :
Brazil, Clockers, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Amadeus, Ratatouille, Monty Python and The Holy Grail, This Is Spinal Tap, Unforgiven, and Shawn of the Dead.
