Books: Ender's Game. Game of Thrones Series. Dune (slowly working
my way through this series). World War Z. That's just what I've
read recently. Also comics (mostly trades and graphic novels -
Grant Morrison, Robert Kirkman, Warren Ellis, Alan Moore, Rick
Remender, and others I'm probably forgetting).
Movies: Jurassic Park, Big Lebowski, Zoolander and Dumb &
Dumber are the best movies ever.
Shows: The Wire. Game of Thrones. Dexter. Mad Men. Community
(before Harmon left). Seinfeld. Boardwalk Empire. BSG. Arrested
Development. Walking Dead. Treme. Generation Kill. (I like TV
better than movies, as there's more opportunity for character/plot
development - probably left some out).
Food: Love everything really. Current favorites include Shawarma
(thanks Tony Stark), Sushi, Pho, Thai (Red Curry is killing it),
Mexican, and pretty much anything exciting that tastes good!
