Books - Some of my favorite all-time books include Lord of the
Rings, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Devil in the White City, and
World War Z. Recently reread the Game of Thrones books, in reverse.
I found it pretty illuminating. Currently just finished Girl with
the Dragon Tattoo.
Movies - Way too many to name but let me throw some movies out
there. Braveheart, Inception, Pirates of the Carribean 1-3, Star
Wars (original trilogy + I like Revenge of the Sith), Lord of the
Rings, 500 days of Summer, Fifth Element, Shawshank
Music - Mostly an alternative/rock kind of guy. I do have a real
affinity for oldies music (particularly 60's and 80's). I also have
been on a jazz/swing music kick.
TV shows - LOST is my all-time favorite show (well...season 1-4
anyways). Current favorite might be Downton Abbey. I have been
really enjoying Sherlock recently too. The last few years others
have included: Firefly, Community, 30 Rock, Breaking Bad, Mad Men,
Archer, Arrow, Castle, House of Cards, Cosmos, and Orange is the
Food - I'm pretty open to most types of food. Indian food is my
favorite of any type of "ethnic" category. I have a bit of a sweet
tooth as well.
