Hard to pick just a couple authors or books from all that I read,
but here goes...
Brandon Sanderson, Timothy Zahn, Robert Jordan, Terry Pratchet, and
Isaac Asimov. Ender's Game, Dune, Wheel of Time, The Hitchhiker's
Guide to the Galaxy, Red Dwarf, and Catch 22.
I am currently reading the Dresden Files series.
I don't watch a lot of TV shows. So when I find something I like, I
tend to binge watch all the episodes.
Princess Bride, Crash, American Beauty, and the original Star Wars
trilogy. Firefly, Castle, Dr. Who, Sherlock, and Top Gear.
Trigun, Bleach, Witch Hunter Robin and Cowboy Bebop.
In the non-TV sense of shows, Waiting for Godot is my favorite
play. Breaking my leg this winter prevented me from seeing it live
on Broadway with Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen.
I like all sorts of music, just about everything short of rap,
country and bluegrass. Some favorites would be Breaking Benjamin,
Bleeker Ridge, Art of Dying, Imagine Dragons, Red Elvises, Thirteen
Senses, Hurts, Simon and Garfunkel, and Finger Eleven.
