GeneralWriting (obviously), Arrested Development, My Name is Earl, old music (new stuff sucks), comics, movies, Swinging London, dogs, foreign movies from 1945 to 1980 (I'm taking the coolest class). Old books and magazines. I like old things because you can steal all sorts of stuff for your writing and nobody will ever know, because they're all mesmerized by Lindsey Lohan and the crap on TV.
MusicThe Beatles and classic rock. Prime cheese from the 70s like ELO (Time-Life series is the BEST!). Some 80s and 90s. Not anything that came out when I was in high school 'cause I hated it. I am just getting into jazz and like Charlie "Bird" Parker, Theolonious Monk, Miles Davis and Bud Powell. I want to like classical, but every time I listen to it, I fall asleep.
MoviesMy favorite movies, in no particular order: Dr. Strangelove, 2001, The Shining (when I can stand to watch it--here's a really cool essay about it), La Dolce Vita, 8 1/2, The 400 Blows, Seven Samurai, Throne of Blood (yes, I am taking a course, "Foreign Date Movies of the Postwar Period"), Animal House, Holy Grail, Life of Brian, The Big Lebowski, Jaws, Squirm, some David Cronenberg movie where there are parasites in an apt building
BooksThe Onion, America: The Book, Barry Trotter, Blarnia (this is only available in England but it's really funny), anything by Dave Barry, anything by Robert Benchley, My Life and Hard Times by James Thurber. FRESHMAN (with strong reservations, since it's supposed to be about me, but it's frequently wrong.)
HeroesMy dad, who is currently serving time in a German jail. (I'm not kidding.) Buddha. Martin Luther King. FDR. Martin Niemoller and Sophie Scholl. Walter Payton (even though I never saw him play). Jesus' crazy uncle Goob, who has been lost to history but came up with most of the ideas.
About me:I'm currently finishing up my sophomore year at Stutts University (of course you've heard of that), living with my roommate Peter in temporary college housing, which is even worse than it is normally--and since I'm in Dacron, that's saying something. Peter, who as I type this is currently raping a sock monkey, has just been crowned Beat-Off King of Great Littleton. Peter and I run The Cuckoo, which is our school's humor magazine. If you don't like it, it's all his fault, especially the drawrings.
Who I'd like to meet:The Beatles, Conan O'Brien, Piet Mondrian, John Cleese, Aubrey Beardsley, Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler, Egon Schiele, Lord Stutts, Hermione Granger (oh, the things I would do to her)
