E-books and comics usually. The ones I read are almost always the
base material for my favorite films. I like going further down that
rabbit hole... I also listen to audiobooks, especially if they're
read by the author. Currently reading A Confederacy of
Dunces by John Kennedy Toole.
Typical guy movies: action-adventure, almost any movie based on a
comic book (MCU, DCU, Dark Horse, etc.), comedy, sci-fi, and a
chick flick once in a while (I can't help it). I'm especially a fan
of Sylvester Stallone as a writer and director along with Darren
Aronofsky, Guillermo Del Toro, and Robert Rodriguez.
A few stand-out favorites: The Addams Family, Machete, Back to the
Future, Hellboy, any James Bond...new favorite: Buckaroo
Frasier, The Brink, Silicon Valley, Penny Dreadful, almost any
British comedy sans Monty Python...definitely Doctor Who.
Currently, Wet Hot American Summer.
Almost anything is good listening: pop, soul, jazz, 8-bit,
scores...as long as it's not country or new gangsta rap (old school
rap, however, is awesome). Mostly, though, I'm very much a rocker
I'd like to try anything at least once...why not?
Safe bets are Freebird's, California Pizza Kitchen, Wing Stop,
Sonic, and any local Italian.
