  4. Polysics, "Polysics or Die: Vista"
  5. Animal Collective, "Strawberry Jam"


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

  1. Futurama "I tend to stick with Adult Swim most of the time and love all their show, but-and I've seen every episode a million times-Futurama is my favorite. It's the brainchild of The Simpsons creator, Matt Groening, about what the future is like in the year 3000-or what it should be like. I can see it happening. I think it was ahead of its time and hilarious. Bender is probably my favorite character-he always speaks his mind. I'm a little like him because I can occasionally be an asshole."
  2. Viva la Bam "A guilty pleasure. It's kind of like Jackass with a plot. It's Bam Margera torturing his friends and family, and I don't know why I enjoy watching them tortured so much. His friends sometimes deserve it, but his dad is the most laid-back person in the world and you've got to love that. His mother's explosions are always pretty fun. The pranks are usually pretty clever, like when they turned the living room into a skating rink."
  3. Project Runway "I like most of Bravo's reality competition shows, but for the sheer drama I would go with Project Runway. They pick the next hot designer by coming up with crazy challenges every week, like having them make a fashionable outfit out of trash. Jeffrey Sebelia, the winner of last season, was my favorite designer. I kind of liked Jay from the first season-he wasn't the person I wanted to see win, but he was fun to listen to. I like the idea of the challenges and seeing the designs. I'm not a huge watcher of fashion, but I do enjoy seeing cool outfits."

Bound Up

Currently reading: "The Book of the SubGenius: The Sacred Teachings of J.R. 'Bob' Dobbs" by J.R. Dobbs "This one's tasty. We found it in the hallway and put it on the toilet. It's too good to be real if it is-it's a mind fuck trying to figure out what they're telling you or trying to make you believe. It's a cult that says the world is going to end about every three years, like, '1994 is gonna be our year!' The book is just an entire rant. They break it into chapters, but it's basically a continuous rant telling you that this church is going to change your life-you'll get all the fucking money and women that you want. Just stay away from 'pink boys.' I don't know what they are. Nothing is very clear in this religion, but their motto is "Fuck 'Em If They Can't Take A Joke'"

One book everyone should read: "Everyone Poops" by Taro Gomi and Amanda Mayer "It's a solid book. It's a kid's book with kind of an Asian girl that tells you where to poop and what hole it comes out of-in the book it's just a cartoon 'X' that stands for the butt hole. Her mom's trying to explain to her what she just made in the toilet. She's like, 'Mom, what's that?" And mom's like, "That's poop. Everyone poops, honey." It's a realization. I think everyone should read this book because sometimes we forget."
