Let's see, where to begin?
I love music, and I'm perpetually listening to songs that catch my
interest. Most of my favorite tunes are from the punk and pop
genres, but there are plenty of exceptions.
A small sampling of my favorite groups/singers are:
Fall Out Boy, New Politics, John Mayer, Elliott Yamin, The Killers,
Matchbox Twenty, Jimmy Eat World, The Script, Paramore, Jon
McLaughin, Sarah Bareilles, Taking Back Sunday, Anberlin, Alkaline
Trio, Josh Groban and Alfie Boe.
Also, I'm also a devoted concert-goer when time permits. There's
just nothing quite like live music! I've seen Paul McCartney once,
Third Eye Blind twice, AFI three times, New Found Glory four times,
New Politics eight times, and the list goes on. Message me if
you're interested in finding out more, or which bands I've met
I spend copious amounts of time reading, and I'm well on my way to
my 4,000 volume library already! Last time I checked, I was pushing
about 2,000 books, but that figure is almost a year old. I'm sure
its grown again. It's mostly sci-fi/fantasy, but I've got all kinds
of literature in there.
My favorite authors include Jim Butcher, David Weber, Raymond E.
Feist, David Gemmell, David Eddings, Charles Stross, Patrick
Rothfuss and Brian Jacques.
I enjoy vegging out on occasion for a movie or television show
(just about any kind will do, to be honest, as long as it has smart
writing and good acting), and I have a sizable DVD collection to
feed my addiction.
My favorite movies of all time (in no particular order) are:
Holiday (Cary Grant/Katherine Hepburn), The Lion in Winter (Patrick
Stewart/Glenn Close), The Man Who Came To Dinner (Nathan Lane), and
The Man From Earth (David Lee Smith). A Dog's Breakfast (David
Hewlett) and Suburban Knights (Nostalgia Critic/Doug Walker) are
close runners up!
My favorites TV shows in the last few years have been Stargate
Atlantis, Sanctuary, Supernatural, Sherlock, Eureka, Attack on
Titan, the first two-thirds of Sword Art Online, and The
Sandbaggers. I'm just working through Burn Notice and Once Upon a
Time right now, and I'm loving them!
Finally, I love theater and attend performances whenever I can.
Live acting is just amazing to watch, and I'd love to share an
evening out at the Gamm with my significant other!
