Books : I've a rather varied reading interest, fiction or fact,
fantasy or history. I've got an entire row on my bookshelf
dedicated to Norse Mythology / Viking stories though. Authors such
as Adrian Tchaikovsky, Giles Kristian, Robyn Young, Tim Severin,
Robert Low and Bernard Cornwell come to mind. Though I'm
unashamedly reading George R. Martin's stuff at the moment and have
a tome and a half of H. P Lovecraft to get through still.
Movies : Literally anything, from Disney to obscure film festival
stuff. I've a movie collection of over 400 works of art (art being
subjective, I'll admit to having some awful pieces in there), I
find myself watching at least one or two a day, or at the very
least have something playing in the background that I've seen
Music : The Decemberists, Alexi Murdoch, Bell X1, Leonard Cohen,
Mazzy Star, Sun Kil Moon, Poets of The Fall, Belle and Sebastian,
Antony & The Johnsons and many more of that kinda thing.
Instrumental stuff like Two Steps From Hell is pretty awesome too.
Recently added Kyla La Grange to this, she's amazing.
Food : Living alone somewhat limits my home cooking cuisine as
nothing is portioned well enough for the bachelor life. Though I
can entertain with the best of them, cooking anything from a decent
Sunday roast to authentic* Mexican food stuffs.
*As authentic as them packets of taco making kits can be.
