Books - Game of Thrones, what I call "Pop Non Fiction" like The
Perfect Storm, the Accidental Millionaires, and Fast Food Nation.
I've read pretty much everything by Stephen King (even the
Gunslinger books, TEAM JAKE 4 LYFE) and I really like reading dry,
scholarly works on Naval warfare (really!)
Movies - I'll just throw a list here, I'm not even going to try to
defend it. Anchorman, Ted, Starship Troopers, Transformers,
Battleship (It was good! REALLY!), This Is The End.... Actually,
you know what, it's easier to just say "Every movie with at least
two member of the Frat Pack in it" and "Action movies that
stimulate the little lizard part of my brain that enjoys watching
Shows - Parks and Rec, Archer, The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Game
of Thrones, Sleepy Hollow, New Girl, All the Fox animated shows,
How I Met Your Mother, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. I like
single camera comedies over the broad multi camera ones (NERD
Music - Top 40 music. That's it. Well, and Japanese pop music. And
music by Immediate Music. You know the cool pulse-pounding

Food - Peanut Butter. Burgers. Good Steak. Nerds Rope. Choco-Chip
cookies by Peggy Lawton (Only available in a 50 square mile radius
from their factory in Walpole, Massachusetts, so I'm at the mercy
of friends who come visit to bring me a case or two when they
arrive). Veggies and stuff make their way in there as I start
losing teeth and hair to scurvy.
