The lists below are not exhaustive in any way but should hint in
which direction my tastes lie.
Mostly classics, science fiction and fantasy. A few favorite
authors are Robin Hobb, George R.R. Martin, J.R.R Tolkien, Isaac
Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, Alexandre Dumas and a bunch more.
Movies and series:
Comedies, action, adventure and science-fiction, drama... you know,
lets just say everything. To mention a few examples: The Kings of
Summer, V For Vendetta, Dark City, 28 Days Later, Cemetery Man,
Dawn of the Dead, Lost in Translation, In Bruges, Pulp Fiction
I tend to change taste quite quickly. Starting from the most recent
genre obsession and going backwards: 80s industrial pop/rock, 90s
pop, folk (proper medieval-inspired, not the latest indie rock from
Brooklyn), modern industrial, electroclash, synthwave... I could go
on. Sisters of Mercy is the present favorite.
