Books: Stuff by J.R.R. Tolkien, Cormac McCarthy, Hunter S.
Thompson... The Great Gatsby, The Dark Tower series, A Song of Ice
and Fire... I read manga from time to time too, but I'm getting
pretty fussy about which ones these days. Also some webcomics,
namely Homestuck and Achewood because they are awesome and crack me
up. I get quite into non-fiction stuff like history books, which
most people would probably find really boring, but I don't care - I
like it :P Anything a bit interesting and thought-provoking I
I'd have to say Tarantino movies are some of my favourites. Not
that fond of more basic, straight up action movies as they tend to
be a bit predictable, but every now and again I guess they're okay.
I enjoy watching comedies, horror, drama, thrillers and anything
that is done in an interesting way or has exceptional acting.
Shows: Some of my favourites are Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire,
Game of Thrones, South Park, The Simpsons, Family Guy and some of
the Adult Swim cartoons like Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Sealab
2021, just cos they're so weird and random. British comedies often
crack me up, including Brasseye, League of Gentlemen, The Mighty
Boosh, Peep Show and Snuffbox to name a few. I also watch
documentaries sometimes if they look cool, particularly shows about
animals or society.
Music: I have pretty varied musical tastes, I think - mostly
classic rock, bluesy/folksy stuff and different kinds of metal
would be what I sorta grew up listening to though. Stuff I like
includes Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, The
White Stripes, The Black Keys, Mogwai, Electric Wizard, Cat Power,
Tenacious D, Tool, The Offspring, Queens of the Stone Age, Sleep,
Om, Alt-J, Refused, Sublime, The Kills, The Dead Weather, Deep
Purple, Godspeed You Black Emperor! and The Prodigy.
Food: I'm not really too particular about what kind of food I eat.
It just depends what I feel like at the time. Lasagne, bolognese
and risottos are a few of my favourite meals though. Also fish, but
that is about all that I will eat from the sea, lol.
