This was getting long enough to be impenetrable... My tastes in
movies, books, music, and TV are ridiculously broad, but I'll
always come back to punk rock/ska/Celtic punk, well written science
fiction and comics, and movies that are so ridiculously bad they
I tend to go on genre benders, especially with music. I'll listen
to sea shanty-ish punk rock for days, then suddenly be on third
wave ska, then satirical folk a la Tom Lehrer, then 90's rock or
weird indie pop, but ska and punk are where my heart lies.
As far as food goes... I'm not exactly picky... I do love coffee
and tea, and I'm a sucker for a really good burger or brick oven
pizza and for southeast Asian and middle eastern food... and when I
cook, I usually gravitate towards things that I can cook by tossing
seemingly random pantry items into a pot and convincing anyone who
doesn't catch on that I might be a sorcerer.
