Tubers

...wherein local TV connoisseurs intimate what keeps them on their couches.

  1. Aqua Teen Hunger Force On Adult Swim, Sunday nights. "It's about a floating, talking box of French fries, and a talking shake, and a talking meatball. They live next door to a human, in New Jersey. The talking food items annoy the neighbor. It's only 15 minutes long, but it's amazing."
  2. Modern Marvels on the History Channel. "They find amazing new inventions and constructions and relate them to past prototypes. I like to learn sometimes when I'm watching TV."
  3. CNN Headline News. "I like to be on top of current events-at least a little bit. I think every news station has its own bias, but CNN is better than Fox News."

Bound Up

Currently reading: The Film Diaries of Richard E. Grant-Richard E. Grant "He's an actor from Great Britain who's been in several films I highly recommend (Henry and June, Withnail & I). It's his take on behind-the-scenes Hollywood. He's witty and acidic, with a great sense of language. He went to a sex shop with Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley. It's an amusing read."

One book everyone should read: Hopscotch Julio Cortazar "It's like a book within a book. You read it once, and then start the book over-this time following cues to jump to different parts of the book to discover new revelations about the original story-hence "Hopscotch." It's about an Argentinean living in Paris."
