When not working, I still go every week to NYU's Sci-Fi Club for some amazing discussions with great people and regularly attend meetings of the NY Sci Fi & Fantasy Meetup group, particularly the book clubs they organize. I'll be upfront and say that I also really enjoy D&D. Say it loud, I'm geeky and proud! I'm also a massive cinemaphile and try and see multiple films a week, both at home and in theaters. This film obsession led me to create a meetup group with other NYC commenters at the best film site in the world, The Dissolve, to see films together and play movie trivia as a team in Williamsburg.
Movies: Into a huge number of them. My perennial favorite will probably be Star Wars for being the first film I fell in love with. Other favorites include On The Waterfront, Moonrise Kingdom, the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, The Cabin In The Woods, Anchorman, the good Star Trek films, the Godzilla series, Birdemic! Shock And Terror, Grand Budapest Hotel, Brazil, and just so much more. Promise me something bizarre and interesting or something deeply moving and I'll likely be there.
Music: Even longer than movies. Here are just a few: Elvis Costello, LCD Soundsystem, Young The Giant, The Killers, Weezer The Who, The Kinks, Matthew Sweet, Arcade Fire, The Doors, Al Green, Big Star, Young The Giant, Wilco, ELO, Marvin Gaye, Joe Jackson, Arctic Monkeys, Van Morrison, Blur, Oasis, Tegan & Sara, R&B, Black Sabbath, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and my namesake, Ben Folds. Also enjoy starting music projects. On and off right now is listening to what's considered the best albums of 1984.
Food: I used to be fairly picky but now I'd like to think I'm willing to try most things and from most cultures. The only thing I absolutely can't have due to allergies are peanuts and peanut butter. I particularly enjoy pizza, Middle Eastern, Chinese, Italian, meats of all sorts, melons, and I have a large sweet tooth.
TV: The comedies I watch on a regular basis are Community and Parks & Recreation. For classic sitcoms, I love The IT Crowd, Blackadder, Seinfeld, and classic Simpsons. And while it's not a sitcom, I absolutely love Mystery Science Theater 3000. Love Doctor Who and all the Star Trek series, with a particular love for DS9. Currently watching Babylon 5, which is supremely awesome.
