Favorite bands :
Lately I've been enjoying some experimental stuff, including but not limited to math rock. This list also applies, and is the core of my tastes:
Minutemen , Oblivians, Black Lips, RL Burnside, The New Bomb Turks, Mos Def, Cannibal Ox, all Daniel Dumile incarnations, John Fahey, X, Gories, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, The Reigning Sound, Bassholes, Black Sheep, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, The Compulsive Gamblers, The Stooges, New York Dolls, Pagans.
There's many more, but I doubt anybody will read this far down.
Favorite guitarists :
D. Boon, RL Burnside, Greg Cartwright, John Fahey, Chuck Berry, Mark Ribot, Bob Quine
Favorite books :
I don't read much though I'd like to do more of it. I liked One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Cat's Cradle, Slaughterhouse 5. I like Christopher Buckley. Pending free time, I'm gonna start reading non-fiction soon, and I'll (maybe) update this then.
Favorite tv :
Arrested Development, The Office (US and UK), The Simpsons, Futurama, ATHF, and I've finally come to see the light of It's Always Sunny...
Favorite movies :
I'm a fan of any quality comedies or documentaries. I'm not too picky with movies so long as they're not too long.
