All the books! I mean, where do I start? I'm on Audible every day,
it's the only thing that can get me through something like painting
or drywall, but I'm a binge reader on the Kindle. I'll go without
reading anything on the Kindle for a while and then scarf down half
a dozen novels in the space of a week. Literally. That's exactly
what happened on my last vacation.
In reverse order of what I've read/listened to lately: The Son, The
Martian, Sharpe Series, Kitchen Confidential, Aubrey-Maturin
Series, school books, Red Shirts, The Graveyard Book, The Dresden
Files, The Atlantis Gene, Game Of Thrones, American Savage, Sex At
Dawn, Zealot (the bible nerd in me loved this one). I could go on
for like, forever.
LOTR spoiled me for high fantasy. It's Tolkien or nothing as far as
I'm concerned. Everything else is a pale imitation. Even Game of
Thrones, which I actually liked quite a bit.
I'm a sap for Harry Potter. Deal with it.
I used to be a huge Sci Fi geek and consumed everything extant,
good or bad. I'm still a sucker for a good Sci Fi, but a good Sci
Fi is rare as hen's teeth. Oddly enough, I read Ender's Game only
very recently and it lived up to it's reputation. The rest of
Card's writing? Meh.
Bananas (but I don't truck with Woody any more, because fuck that
guy,) Lars And The Real Girl. Avengers. I'm a total sucker for a
classic 80's movie, but I'm also one of those pricks who waxes
eloquent on some unheard of indie flick and then goes and swoons
over Chris Hemsworth at the megaplex.
Mr Selfridge, Mozart In The Jungle, Arrested Development, The
Increasingly Poor Decisions Of Todd Margaret, Extras, Archer,
Adventure Time, Game Of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Justified, The
Office (English), anything with Karl Pilkington in it, Red Dwarf,
Reno 911, Warehouse 13, Sherlock (Why is everyone ape shit over
Cumberbatch? Martin Freeman is much more attractive.)
If I'm framing I need straight up butt rock, maybe a little AC/DC
or Led Zeppelin for spice. Interior remodel, Kings of Leon station
on Pandora. Cooking, I go with the 80's station. But it's mostly
about Bowie. If you don't like Bowie, you are probably a
I'm a foodie. I love to cook. My work mate and I make a point of
cooking on site as much as possible and the sky is the limit:
grilled ahi with home made mango chutney? Why not? Grilled
portobellos drenched in vinaigrette and swiss? Sure! (There's a lot
of grilling going on.) However, I love sushi more than anything. My
partner is passionately ambivalent (is that a thing?) about fish,
so I often get my sushi fix by going on a sushi date with someone
else. You like sushi? Yeah, we can hang out.
