Television: My television is mainly used to watch movies and if my
computer is hooked up to it at the time. I have become hooked
watching Downton Abbey on PBS for some reason. I can't really
Books: I don't have much time to read for fun these days, but like
my taste in music and movies, I enjoy a wide variety of genres.
H.P. Lovecraft, Clive Barker, J.R.R. Tolkien, Hunter S. Thompson,
Oscar Wilde, and assorted historical and political books. I was
also the only one who enjoyed reading the assigned books in my high
school english class, or at least the only one who'll admit it.
Stuff like Wuthering Heights, Moby Dick, and The Last of the
Mohicans. As a former comic book geek, I'll also take some of my
comics out of their dusty old boxes occasionally.
Movies: I don't have the time right now to decide on a precise list
of my favorite movies, so I'll just list some of the ones I own.
They're not necessarily my favorite ones, but I thought I'd give
you an idea of the variety of movies I like.

Cell, Children of Men, A Clockwork Orange, Dances With Wolves, Dark
City, The Dark Crystal, The Doors, Dracula, Eastern Promises, Enemy

Zoolander, Zulu, and assorted Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan flicks when
I feel like reminiscing about my black belt days.
I'm a ridiculous movie geek, to the point that I know tons of
worthless trivia, even about movies that I've never seen. If
Blockbuster was hiring someone to recommend movies for 50 grand a
year, I'd be set.
