Love science books, big old illustrated ones. Seldom have I found
better reading than The Biology of Spiders!
For more book fun, the Nights Dawn Trilogy, Expedition by Wayne
Barlowe (that one’s a peach), and Animal Life are a few of my
favourites. Thankfully I have a decent sized bookshelf since the
illustrated ones are damn heavy!
As for artistic appreciation I am a huge fan of cartooning, which
is rather strange because it’s almost the exact opposite of my own
style. I also love me some surrealism (Dali is a good egg) and any
well executed science fiction art.
Movie wise I love District 9, Pans Labyrinth, the LOTR Trilogy; the
more fantastical and imaginative the better! On the flipside I also
like the aforementioned utter crap (Attack of the Giant Leeches et
TV wise: Community, The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, Home
Movies, Frontline, anything by David Attenborough, Brass Eye, Curb
Your Enthusiasm, The Micallef Program and Adventure Time.
For musical fun it’s a diet of soundtracks, a pinch of heavy metal,
lots of weird drone tracks and some sexy dance fun.
Podcasts: The Ricky Gervais Show and Adam and Joe have been on my
Ipod for quite a long time!
