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
explain that. I've finally gotten caught up on Game of Thrones and
am currently trying to catch up on The Walking Dead while trying to
avoid spoilers from friends that are watching the current
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.

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. After all of
these years, I'm finally getting around to reading The Sandman
comics, which I've downloaded on my touchpad.

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 100 grand a
year, I'd be set.
