too many, and it always changes order.
Sonic Youth, Radiohead, Death Cab For Cutie, Kaki King, Built To Spill, Sufjan Stevens, Sun Kil Moon, Brendan Canning, Broken Social Scene, Grizzly Bear, East India Youth (and various other William Doyle projects), Elliott Smith, Slowdive, The Long Winters, Yo La Tengo, Dorothy Ashby, Fugazi, mewithoutYou, The Flaming Lips, The Beatles (Revolver onward), The National, Jawbreaker, Caribou, Kevin Devine, The Smiths, American Analog Set, Brand New, Pedro The Lion/David Bazan, The Weakerthans, Nick Drake..... and Terrain. IMO there's no reason to make music if you're not actually making music that you would consider some of your favorite, songs of mine take years to develop because I want them to be perfect and enticing at every corner
I like a lot of kinds of movies, there's no real order or structure to it. If I like the acting, or if I think the punchlines are goofy, then I probably like the movie.
Favorite TV Shows
the NFL -- those "intelligent" comedies that everyone on AP also likes (Arrested Development, etc.) -- British sitcoms. Britain's mainstream sense of humor is so much better than ours. -- anything on Nat Geo
What the fuck is a "personal note"? I've never seen this on any other social media
I want to either be an NFL analyst or tour in my band for a living. Ideally I'd tour during the late offseason and do both. But I've been on this site since I was 16 and the people I've met have been a motivation for me chasing those two dreams. Kind of weird how much influence the internet can have -- surprisingly I've made and personally met more real, great friends from AP than I can count on both hands.
Writing Music, Learning how to record it professionally, etc. -- being nocturnal (seriously, you'll see a lot of 4-5 AM timestamps on my AP posts) -- The Jaguars (and really all the other teams in the NFL too) -- COUCH COACHES. Tell yo wife, tell yo mistress too. www.CouchCoaches.co -- Nature and going to the mountains and marijuana and moving to Seattle or Portland and all that hippie shit -- I just think most people choose dull lives and I want to make mine fun, basically.
