These are a few of my favorite things.
  1. TNG
    Cause I was raised right.
  2. My So-Called Life
    In high school, my near and dear Sam and I decided we would celebrate our hypothetical-future-daughters' first periods by gifting them the MSCL box set, and I stand by that choice.
  3. The song "Autumn Sweater" by Yo La Tengo
    Yo La Tengo in general, sure, but this one really kills me and every time I hear it I commit myself to spending the rest of my life with whoever is in charge of the stereo.
  4. Rainbow Rowell
    She wrote a book called Fangirl, so it's sort of a Möbius strip of love and fandom.
  5. Sufjan Stevens
    This is now well documented on ListApp and in real life and @tothemaxxx knows it.
  6. Goodness gracious, @sarahdessen is on ListApp now
    Whenever I re-read "Someone Like You," I feel my gosh darn feelings and I am transported to my 8th grade school library.
  7. Elephant 6 Collective
    It started with "In the Aeroplane Over the Sea" and ended NEVER.
  8. Manual Cinema
    My #1 favorite Chicago-based shadow puppet company. I saw them again last night and I'm still brimming with joy.
