    I play this through at least once a year. It's a fun little Shadowgate-style adventure on the NES. With vegetables.

    Well I really like French-Westerns, currently watching Another Man, Another Chance. The whole introduction of using a Cadillac as a buggy for a horse is delightfully ridiculous.

    I'm also currently wanting to read The Guillotine Squad.

    If we're talking anime, I would say Darker Than Black or School Rumble. There are better ones out there, but those for me are just really enjoyable series to watch again and again.

    I’m pretty shameless, but the one that seems the most random to people who don’t know me personally is Project Runway (and PR Junior).

    Yeah I also maintain my AOL email. I think of it as a badge of “I was online when the internet was becoming a household word.”

    I'm not sure about Dragonball Super yet. The biggest problem is the show is boring for the very reason that there simply is to much excitement. Because everything is high octane action, very little episodes are actually spent toward building individual characters. It's not an art thing, it's just being a good writer that seems to get missed.

    I think so far, only four episodes, out of like 130 something, even go into the MCs every day life.

    Maybe the manga will have more, I'm not sure. But just going by the anime, it's just not enough to really want me to buy the books.

    After a little more consideration I'm going to say Nickleback. I'm not a superfan, but I like their songs. I don't understand all the hate, I love his rough voice and the dirty growl of their guitars.

    It's a guilty pleasure because I often avoid mentioning them when I list the music I like.

    For anime, recently it's been Kakegurui. And I love every season of SAO except the most recent one (can't even get past the 3rd episode). I know it's bad. I don't care.

    For movies it's... I've got a lot. 300, Battlefield Earth, Hot Tub Time Machine. I like good movies too, I swear...

    For music, I'm with Jun. Nickleback. I'll go a step further and say that if you don't think their album Silver Side Up is good, you're just lying to yourself.

    No real literary guilty pleasures. Unless you count the capitalism induced ideological guilt that gnaws at me while I read anarchist and marxist literature. There's that :D
