I love science fiction. Something about sailing through the
universe in a massive vessel built of metal, just speaks to my
inner child in a way no other genre can. I'm a born and raised Star
Wars geek, and know far too much random factoids about the movies
and extended universe. If you ever want to watch the movies with
the worst kind of dvd commentary, get me drunk and sit me down in
front of the movies and I'll tell you how Watto can fly despite his
tiny wings or why the X-Wing fighter has to "lock S-foils in attack
Beyond that, I enjoy fantasy, action, and history films. Though I
am a sucker for a good romantic comedy and will not hesitate to
shed a manly tear at the end of a sad movie. My big favorites
include the Lord of the Rings (super excited for the hobbit), Pixar
films (Ratatouille is my favorite), and Scott Pilgrim vs The World.
This obviously only scratches the surface and I can talk for hours
about films and how they are made.
Television I enjoy sit-coms, especially Scrubs, Big Bang Theory and
How I Met Your Mother. Also a long time fan of Buffy the Vampire
Slayer and its spin-off Angel. Mythbusters also keep the splines in
my brain reticulating. I've also been playing catch-up on shows
that I've neglected over the years such as Futurama, Dexter, and
whatever else pops up on my Netflix queue. Walking Dead and Game of
Thrones never fail to impress me though week after week.
Oh and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson is the best thing on
Odd to clump food in here as well, but pizza is perhaps the
greatest thing ever invented. I blame the Teenage Mutant Ninja
Turtles for corrupting my young mind back in the day to thinking
that pizza was the only food group for years.
My musical interests change from month to month, but I am quite
open to listening to anything at least once. Though I have strange
vendetta against country music. Current artists that show up on my
Pandora station is The Hush Sound, Panic! At the Disco, The Fray,
Cee-lo Green, and oddly a fair amount of top 40 hits... I don't
take my musical taste too seriously and if we're being honest here
a touch of Katy Perry once a day can brighten anyone's mood.
As for literature I read constantly be it magazines, novels,
non-fiction, rule books, heck even packaging for products. I can't
claim I remember or follower any authors basically, but that is
simply because I'm terrible at remembering names! To compensate I
can pick up a book or comic months after reading it and it is
almost a brand new experience for me. I enjoy revisiting old
favorites sitting on the shelf after years and remembering why I
kept it around to begin with!
On that note, I love comics, and have been slowly rebuilding my
collection digitally. Been giving DC a shot lately, but really the
only books I follow monthly are Detective Comics, Batwoman, and
Aquaman. Hellboy is one of my favorites, but I really only grab the
trades from time to time. Recently completed burning through the
omnibus of Bone and absolutely loved it.
