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. Been into classic literature lately:
Frankenstein, Dracula, The Invisible Man, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,
The Picture of Dorian Gray, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea,
Typical guy movies: action-adventure, 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...
Top Gear UK, Parks and Rec, Have I Got News For You, Wilfred,
Fargo, almost any British comedy sans Monty Python...definitely
Doctor Who, The Cosmos (I fucking love science).
Almost anything is good listening: pop, soul, jazz, 8-bit,
videogame/movie compositions...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 and metal-head.
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.
