We'll start with food, 'cause it's easy. I've done a pretty good
job broadening my horizons with what I'm at least willing to try,
especially compared to when I was a young'un. Pumpkin pie is my
absolute favorite, and I don't need to wait for autumn to enjoy it.
Sushi's something I love, and I'm slowly getting better with
spicier foods. I tend to prefer chocolates and candies over
pastries. And of course, there are a lot of specific foods that I
enjoy, but I don't want to make a boring list.
Music? I like some classic and modern rock, but a lead singer's
voice can very easily turn me off to a band. There are some more
pop-ish artists I can listen to, and lately I've been exploring

ability to drop the bass and even a sick beat is insignificant next
to the power of Metal.
I don't watch much TV anymore, but Babylon 5 will always be one of
my all-time favorites. I can easily sit and enjoy an episode of
Star Trek, too. But, I'm of the opinion that the best show to ever
air on network TV was M*A*S*H.
I've also watched a fair amount of anime, but I haven't really had
the opportunity to sit down to that in a while. I've seen all two

movies, -and- the live action series. I am not ashamed.
As far as movies? I saw Pacific Rim in theater. Game, Set,
A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R.R. Martin. The Coldfire
Trilogy, by C.S. Friedman. The Night's Dawn, by Peter F. Hamilton.
Ender's Game. The Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix (although I've come
to the conclusion that Nix -loves- his similes.) The list goes
