I grew up on the classics of science-fiction. Robert Heinlein, Ray
Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, Ursula K. LeGuin. Also a ton of Agatha
Christie--I love that old book smell. I don't have a chance to read
a lot of fiction these days, but I'm a huge fan of the Dresden
Files books by Jim Butcher, although not the TV show.
Illusions by Richard Bach is one of my favorite books ever,
and I've read the entirety of Grant Morrison's The
Invisibles, Warren Ellis's Transmetropolitan, and Neil
Gaiman's The Sandman. In terms of non-fiction I have a
reference library I'm always checking for spiritual stuff. Ted
Andrews, Chantel Lysette, Scott Cunningham and Gustav Davidson, of
course. I'm pretty sure if you know who any of those four authors
are it's Scott Cunningham, and if you don't, it's cool. I pretty
much assume anyone I match with at a high percentage is gonna
disagree with me about religion and spirituality.
I am one of those people who doesn't own a TV. When I lived in a
house with a TV I was writing for a TV blog doing
recaps/reviews/musings-on for The Walking Dead until I moved
and by then the writing had gotten so much better it was more
disturbing than I wanted to deal with. I spend embarrassing amounts
of time watching people play video games on YouTube.
I've been a gamer my whole life, cut my teeth on Pokemon and still
occasionally have dreams about new Pokemon games. I play a lot of
Minecraft, was obsessed with Skyrim for a month until I got to such
a high level that it wasn't challenging anymore and had done
everything I wanted to do anyway, and enjoy checking out
interesting indie games that do something cool. Games like
Starbound, A Dark Room, Thomas Was Alone, and The Binding of Isaac.
Harvest Moon was a huge influence on me growing up.
Movies: Favorite movie is Singin' in the Rain. I love old
musicals--Guys and Dolls, The Music Man, Top Hat, Summerstock, Kiss
Me Kate (fuck Howard Keel though). Other movies include:
Casablanca, Brick, Withnail and I, Young Frankenstein, Unforgiven,
3 Days of the Condor, The Naked Spur, Hellboy, Step Up, Monty
Python and the Holy Grail, and Mozart and the Whale.
Music: Favorite band right now is The Glitch Mob. I expect nobody
in my life to share my love of Glitch Hop. I also like: Ellie
Goulding, Adventure Club, Depeche Mode (Someone was playing them
when I made this profile, hence the name choice), VNV Nation,
Infected Mushroom (not their older stuff), Ella Fitzgerald, Nina
Simone, Pretty Lights, Lupe Fiasco, Puscifer, The Beatles, and bits
and pieces of Jay-Z, My Chemical Romance, Rage Against the Machine,
Radiohead, AC/DC, and Donovan. Most of the time I'm listening to
music it's electronic, anything from dubstep to chillout.
I like sushi, New York City pizza, donuts, fresh fruit, fancy
chocolates, beef cooked as rare as humanly possible, and if it
meets my high standards for it, Mexican food. I love the Japanese
places on St. Mark's Place and have never found a BBQ joint in this
city that's good enough for me.
