Books - science fiction, but kind of old science fiction. I like
reading what people in the past thought about the future. Jules
Verne wrote a story about launching a spaceship to the moon a 100
years before Apollo, from Florida, with 3 people, and it splashed
down in the Pacific Ocean. He got some things wrong too. His
astronauts opened a window while in orbit and everything was just
Movies - I like the standard guy action movies. The movies that
have left the biggest impression on me are these: Highlander - this
was, by all critical acclaim, an awful movie. But, you've got Sean
Connery, immortals whacking each other's heads off in a grand
battle for a mysterious prize, and a soundtrack by Queen in their
prime. If you can't find something to love about this movie, you

The Silence of the Lambs - this is the first movie I saw where the
bad guy didn't seem like a written Hollywood necessity, but like a
real person who could be living in my neighborhood, keeping girl

different world. It disturbed me. Movies should do that.
Monty Python and the Holy Grail - the knights have a serious and
noble objective - find the grail. But they keep getting side

Fight Club - this was the story of a young professional questioning
his possessions and his life's decisions, and it came out at a time

psychotic episode and start an underground fighting cult (to my
knowledge), but I did start to question more things in my
The Star Wars trilogy - I'm going to pretend that the prequel
trilogy never existed.
Shows - Netflix has been one of the other best things to come along
lately. I've been watching Breaking Bad, Wilfred, and Arrested
Food - I'm not a picky eater, and I enjoy many varieties. My wife
is more of a foodie. She can tell you where to find a GOOD
tiramisu. I'm just happy to cram the yummy sugary treat into my pie
