Neil Gaiman, most anything by Terry Pratchett or Douglass Adams; I
read almost constantly about any subject that interests me: from
ancient sword-making techniques and siege weapon construction all
the way up to modern crime and forensic procedure. I currently read
anthologies. This Shakespeare guy is pretty good, and I like to
read middle English out loud for my own amusement. I have a thing
about George RR Martin; I somewhere between worshiping the ground
on which he walks and beating him over the head with a rock until
his last two books come out. I've also been enjoying Chesterton
I maintain an eclectic collection of movie tastes that shifts
periodically depending on my mood. Currently, anything witty, a
little dark, with a dash of whimsy and vikings. Vikings are pretty
awesome. Why yes, 'How to Train Your Dragon' DOES fit all of those
TV Shows: As above. Leverage, Dr Who, Burn Notice and Supernatural
(as far as Season 5, anyway) are some of the best shows on TV, and
I will fight anyone who says different. Community makes me want to
have epic paintball fights. I've also been pretty heavily into
Defiance, Penny Dreadful, Salem and Vikings (whenever it's on). I
want Showtime to make another damned season of Black Sails,
already. I watch Game of Thrones mainly so I can watch my friends'
reactions to things I read about in the books.
I'll listen to almost any kind of music the catches my fancy. I was
raised on show tunes and AC/DC, so usually classic rock, but I'll
wander through heavy metal, industrial techno (lets be honest with
ourselves; it's techno) and rock from the nineties. Also, Amon
Amarth makes me happy.
