Books: Stephen King, especially the Dark Tower series, Tolkiens
works, but especially The Hobbit. Laurel K. Hamilton's work, in
spite of her obsessions with over-explaining her choice of
clothing, fire-arms and sexual partners. Dean Koontz works are hard
to put down. I go into phases where science fiction/fantasy/horror
alternate, then I read something completely unexpected like Marley
and Me...A good mystery isn't out of the question.
Movies: back to Tolkien's Lord of the Rings...Many of Tim Burton's
works, The Princess Bride, Monty Python movies...A Christmas Story,
the first 3 Indiana Jones movies (nostalgic reasons), Star Wars
movies and a variety of anime...Akira and Ghost in the Shell got me
started. I am willing to sit through a good chick-flick...but if I
cry, you have to pretend you didn't see it. I still haven't lived
down Moulan Rouge...she had tuberculosis...it was tragic...(stop
Music: Everything except vulgar rap, extreme-twang Blue grass and
German baroque Opera. I grew up on what they call "classic rock"
now, but dig grunge, alternative, indie and country...hard to find
a radio station I wont listen to.
Food: Pretty much anything! I'll eat (or at least try) just about
anything people call food. I have a good palate, but like to abuse
it occasionally. I love a huge range of food from Thai food to a
good German sausage on a roll with sauerkraut...Lately, I have been
hitting the wilted spinach salads pretty hard...is spinach
