Inception is my favourite film, with Fightclub and The Shawshank
Redemption joint second. I also enjoy V for Vendetta, Scott
Pilgrim, and most anything by Christopher Nolan.
My comfort book is Spares by Michael Marshall-Smith, I love Lolita
by Vladimir Nabokov and both the Birds and Rebecca by Daphne Du
Maurier (Hitchcock was an awful awful Director as far as I'm
concerned). Reading the Illuminatus Trilogy has been one of the
best experiences of my life and I would highly recommend it (for
what that's worth). I also enjoy sci-fi, though there's certainly a
lot I haven't read yet, I especially like Dune, The Hitchhiker's
Guide to the Galaxy and most everything by Iain M. Banks. His books
make me feel at home.
For graphic novels, Alan Moore is the absolute master of the genre
and I especially love Watchmen.
For TV series I love House of Cards, Black Books, Game of Thrones,
Futurama, Catterick, Angel and Rome. I also enjoy anything Addams
Family related, including the rubbish TV series, and have a soft
spot for any number of the terrible cheesy programmes James Nesbitt
has been in (Jekyl, Murphy's Law).
I also love games - Baldur's Gate, classic Doom, Fable II, Farcry
3, Rayman Origins, Uncharted, Assassins' Creed, COD, the Lego
games, Halo, Little Big Planet, Katamari Forever. I wanted to like
Music I like: The Smiths, Billie Holiday, Bo Burnham but I'm mainly
one of those annoying people who likes two songs by your favourite
artist but knows of nothing else they've ever done. Broadly
speaking I like folk, classic rock and soul mostly. I like rap but
its too distracting and I hate trilly singing (looking at you Leona
Lewis) so a lot of current pop is right out. If we're in a shop and
someone asks what the song is I can pretty much guarantee I won't
know the answer.
I like fruit and veg very much, meat cooked until its almost
inedible and delicious non-gluten puddings.
