I'll pretty much try anything once. Sushi, Thai, Mexican food is
I'm a sci-fi geek. The Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson is
rocking my world right now! Anathem by Neil Stephenson, House of
Leaves, Palimpsest by Catherynne Valente, Neil Gaiman, HP
Lovecraft, and too many more books to name.
Tunes! I am living off Tropicool mixes at the moment. Goldfrapp,
Pretty Lights, Thievery Corp, Imogen Heap, Jamiroquai, Gladkill,
etc. Pretty much anything mellow and electronic.
Movies! Serenity, because Mal and Zoe know it's a trap, Wes
Anderson movies, The Fall, Forgetting Sarah Marshal. Generally for
me, "blockbuster" equals "poorly written." That said, I enjoyed GI
Joe: The Rise of Cobra more than I thought possible :P
TV shows: Pushing Daisies because of the whimsy, color, and Emerson
Cod's snark, Avatar because Zuko had to learn things the hard way
and boomerang does always come back, Firefly because intelligent
writing and strong characters make 13 episodes stronger than many
shows with a 100, Fringe because John Noble plays a nuanced mad
scientist, Wonderfalls because you listen, and lots more. Pretty
much scripted television in general.
