I've literally read thousands of books, averaging
about 300 a year since I was 5 (Hey, my mother was a librarian.) My
favorite genres are historical mysteries
, science fiction
, and fantasy
. Name an author in
those genres and I've probably read him/her, at least once.
I like action, sci-fi
(the suspenseful sort, not
sadistic or gory), as well as campy movies. Johnnie To
and Ryuhei Kitamura
are my favorite
directors. Also love old movies
, especially serials and
Although it's a bit hard to reconcile with my admiration for
artistic creation, even badly done ones, I am a big MST3K
I generally only watch TV to watch the (baseball
game or the History Channel
. The last sitcom I
liked was The
, and the last drama...I don't know, I am afraid to
watch them because they always seem to get canceled when I like
I have a Last FM page -
Mostly a combination of '80s stuff, classic rock
, and Electronic Dance
). Led Zeppelin
, Suzy Solar
(her radio show), and
A Flock of
are my top three.
I actually haven't liked a new rock song in almost 15 years (though
I've tried to get into psychobilly), but on the flip side, there's
more good music being produced today than I have time to listen to.
It's all pretty much EDM, though.
And yes, I really do like disco. Quite a lot. Particularly the
orchestral sounding stuff that just goes on and on and on. K.C.
& The Sunshine Band not so much.
is my favorite. About the only great thing about St. Louis is the
style of pizza, which I love. Faraci's on Manchester is the best, I
can't even imagine a better pizza. Well, Farotto's is really good
St. Louis has a lot of pizza places - do yourself a favor and don't
eat at Imo's, or god help you, Cecil Whitaker's. They are
respectively the McDonald's and Arby's of St. Louis style
And while I'm being preachy about pizza, use your skillet to heat
it back up, not a toaster oven. Just put some tin foil over it, put
it on medium, and give it a few minutes! Just try it. You'll kick
yourself for not doing it earlier.
Just to add my own categories:
Get Fuzzy, Drabble, Mother Goose & Grimm
Et in Arcadia Eco by Nicholas Poussin
, A Friend in
Need by C.M.
, Flaming June by Frederic Leighton, and most
landscapes by Caspar David Friedrich
but especially The Tree with Crows and A Couple Gazing at the Moon.
Art is something I've grown to appreciate more as I've gotten
Jon Pertwee - he was the most stylishly dressed
(even looking good in a cape) and flew an autogyro. And Leela would
be my favorite companion, she's very...stabby.
