Books: It, The Dark Tower, The Count of Monte Cristo, Ender's Game.
I don't know, I like a lot of books, especially if they spend the
time to really develop their own world. I like most of Stephen
King's books, a lot of classics, and epic fantasy.
Movies: This could be a pretty eclectic mix and I've seen so many
movies it's weird to try to pick favorites, so I'll just list
whatever comes to mind. Aliens, Lord of the Rings, Princess Bride,
Pan's Labyrinth, V for Vendetta, Seven Samurai, How to Train Your
Dragon, Man on Fire, Shaun of the Dead, almost anything by Pixar
and a lot of old Disney movies.
TV: I actually stopped watching TV a couple years ago. Most shows I
liked either got canceled or just imploded, though I've just
started watching The Walking Dead on a recommendation and it's kind
of cool. I'm not a fan of episodic content, so most shows really
don't hook me. Some of my favorites are Firefly, Deadwood,
X-Files(early stuff only), South Park and The Daily Show.
Music: Grunge, heavy metal, classical. I don't know, if I like
it... I like it. If I had to list groups, Evanescence, The
Offspring, Green Day, Sum 41, Live (only their first album), Three
Day's Grace, Godsmack, Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin. I also have a
strange affection for Irish folk music. Go figure.
Food: Anything not spicy.
