What follows is a list of readings, music, and movies that have in one way or another become integral to my life. Each has been deeply influential and instructive to my emotional health and development, and all are presented here guilelessly. None are included as a joke or as a "bad" example of their medium.

Certain items are out-of-print or non-commercial works that are hosted on this server for download. For others, an informational or YouTube link is provided. If you are having trouble locating any of these, please don't hesitate to contact me.
