Books... Books books books. I'd have to go with Gödel, Escher, Bach
by Douglas Hofstadter, The Eight by Katherine Neville, Digital
Fortress by Dan Brown, or Prey by Michael Crichton.
Movies... Pretty much any good comedy or action/adventure movie.
Definitely things like James Bond, Star Wars, and Indiana Jones, as
well as some that don't take themselves as seriously like
Dodgeball, Shrek, or pretty much anything with Will Ferrell or
Robin Williams in it.
Shows... HOLY CRAP PERSON OF INTEREST, Eureka (though it was
canceled, boo), Warehouse 13, Mythbusters, Doctor Who, any Star

Music! Quite possibly my favorite category among these. Most

like a printer when I'm weaving, and I mean that in the best
possible way. I don't know how to explain what I like about it, but
I like it.
- Programming! It's what I do for a living, so this shouldn't be
too much of a surprise, but I enjoy it as a hobby, too.
- Minecraft! It lets the mad scientist in me run rampant, create
overengineered contraptions, and just do all sorts of crazy things.
I... may have put a squid in a minecart. And I may have... ehm...
set the minecart on fire just before it hurtled over the edge of a
