Books: The internet has stolen much of my novel-length reading
time, but I like Nick Hornby, Chuck Palahniuk, Neil Gaiman, and
TV Shows: I am absolutely a fan of the trend towards the "long
movie" in TV Shows. House of Cards, The Americans, Homeland, Mad
Men, that sort of thing. I can enjoy a good sitcom, too,
Movies: Almost anything except horror/slasher flicks. Grindhouse

Music: There's not much I won't listen to at least once. Skrillex
doesn't often get a second play through, though. I've been
listening to an awful lot of trip-hop lately (Moorcheeba, Zero 7
that sort of thing) Save me and suggest something new!
Food: Indian, Italian, Thai, steakhouse, pub, taqueria... All these
things are good.
