Dylan Shelton spent a decent part of our interview concerned his picks for this Things We Love feature were too generic, but also convinced it was the only way forward for the New York-based comedian. It makes a certain amount of sense considering Shelton's comedy often approaches the everyday and mundane from fresh perspectives. Shelton returns to Columbus on Dec. 26 for his fifth annual (and free!) showcase of comedians, "Comedy, Pizza and Booze: These Are a Few of My Favorite Things."

My Facebook newsfeed

I have, like, 1,500 Facebook friends. I donít actually know these people. These arenít people Iíve chosen to spend time with. I donít comment on any of them, and Iím not someone who interjects and gets into Facebook fights. Some people complain about their Facebook feed and people posting stupid stuff. For me, itís a reminder of, ďOh, these people are the people that could have been my friends, but somehow got weeded out.Ē To me, itís like bathroom reading.

Netflix, my new savings account

I couldnít be more infatuated with Netflix, Hulu and HBO GO. Itís depressing how much I watch it. Iíll spend a solid 12 hours straight if itís a day off. Iím married, and if my wife has a day off too, itís amazing how easy it is to order a pizza and not move. I donít think I ever did that before when it was just TV. I pay $7.99 a month, and itís by far the only reason I have any money because itís the cheapest form of entertainment. Iím buying [Christmas] gifts for my family, which is something I actually love, but if it wasnít for Netflix I wouldnít be able to do it. [Netflix is] not generating income, but it feels like it is.

Columbus, ďThe SimpsonsĒ of cities

I realize this is widely generic, but itís in the forefront of my head. Itís so hard for me to not move back [to Columbus]. I have better crowds, better audiences [in Columbus]. Iím continuously impressed with and excited about [the city]. Itís very much like ďThe Simpsons.Ē ďThe SimpsonsĒ took Springfield and made every group of person that exists in America and shrunk it down to a hundred people by percentages and made that into a TV show. It had everything in it, and I think Columbus is the same. You have staunch conservatives, super left, all different types of religion ó thereís diversity. You have great food, great sports and we have the best concerts. You donít miss anything by being in Columbus. The more Iím here, the more I have an appreciation for how well-rounded Columbus is.
