Generally in my life I try what intrigues me and I try to remember
what I enjoyed. Although with some subjects it's a little
I cook. I do it well. But I like a lot of kinds of food in all
kinds of situations.
Books: Good stories, with above average plot lines. Preferably
something Sci-Fi/Fantasy-ish. But I greatly Enjoy Kathy Reichs'
Tempe Brennan stories and such as well.
(Yes, she wrote the books first...)
TV: Before reading this list: I have some kind of TV or show on all
day when working from home, because I work better in a "living
environment" and that means unpredictable voices or actions around
me. So... it is a lot:
Anything from the UK with any number of the following: Richard
Ayoade, Jon Richardson, Stephen Fry, Bill Bailey, Phil Jupitus,
Noel Fielding, Dara O Briain, David Mitchell, Richard Ayoade, Chris
O'Dowd, Hugh Laurie (If you don't know he's English, you need to
borrow some of my DVDs), Frankie Boyle ("Racist Door"), Jimmy Carr,
Sean Lock ("Spine in a sack"), Rob Brydon, did I mention Richard
Ayoade? Also just about anything originally hosted by Angus
Deayton. And John Hannah, yesss! to A Touch of Cloth! And Karen
Gillan is starting to proof herself as well. (I do also like most
of the Doctor Who, but that cast keeps changing)
But also many non-UK based shows, amongst which: X-Files, Better
off Ted, House, Chicago Fire, ST-TNG (Deal with it! I'm awesome,
but also a nerd), Body of Proof, American Dad (usually), Family Guy
(often), Futurama (See ST-TNG), Californication, Dead Like Me, The
Finder, Fargo, Franklin and Bash, Last Week Tonight with John
Oliver, Late Late with Craig Ferguson, Modern Family, The Daily
Show, New Girl, Orange is the New Black, Firefly (again, see
Also, in the case of music: Anything that isn't easily replicated
by slamming one's head repeatedly into a cheap late-90's keyboard.
Examples? Postmoden Jukebox (YouTube), Ingrid Michaelson (YouTube),
Maria Mena, Regina Spektor, Enya, Anouk, Elton John, Ilse DeLange,
Yello (Yello? Yes! Yello!) and most others that fit that pattern.
