Books: I read a lot, almost exclusively fiction. I quiet enjoyed
the works of J.D. Salinger and have been working my way, on and
off, through Hemingway. The Sun Also Rises is fantastic! Jonathan
Franzen is a great contemporary author.
I'm also in a book club, it is awesome.
Movies: Wes Andersen flicks (Fantastic Mr. Fox), Charley Kaufman
(Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), Richard Linklater ( Before
Sunrise), and lots lots more.
Shows: Been slacking on my tv viewing, but I like AMC and SHOWtime
shows (Californication is AWESOME!)
Music: Very eclectic, all radiating from alt rock. Bands like Muse,
Radiohead, Travis, and Weezer are my core. Though if you head out
you'll find everything from Norah Jones to Skrillex and all the way
around to Katy Perry and Marnie Stern.
Food: I like to bake cheesecakes.
Games: I used to be a hardcore gamer. Not so much anymore. Right
now I enjoy Magic the gathering, Diablo 3, and just made a
character in Guild Wars 2.
