I love to read! Mostly sci-fi and fantasy, but I have a decent
collection of noir novels so that I can walk down more aisles at
Half-Price looking for more. Terry Pratchett is probably my
favorite author, and I have read Discworld novels so much that I
once surprised my friends on the depth of my knowledge.
I read comics as well because I am an adult geek and I can spend my
money however I like. I did not, however, read them when I was a
kid geek. Mainly because I did not have money to spend however I
liked. But now I can read about Batman and Atomic Robo while I
drink some Kool-Aid. Please note, I will not actually drink
Kool-Aid. It tastes terrible.
I don't watch a lot of ongoing tv, as I cancelled my cable, but I
do own a number of box sets, mostly cartoons and sci-fi. I do,
however, have friends that pay for tv and I go to their place to
stay current on series they are watching, like Dr. Who. Farscape is
probably my favorite series to rewatch that I own.
I love watching Kung-Fu, Blaxploitation and B movies with other
people. I am always willing to sit down and watch a spectacle that
isn't a horror film. I think that everyone in those acts stupid as
hell and it irritates me because I would have just set the entirety
of East Texas on fire before getting chainsawed by an inbred
redneck. It's East Texas, who's gonna miss it anyway?
Other than that, I pretty much watch anything else, as it seems I
have a weakness for moving pictures to the point where I can't
sleep if a tv is on.
I feel that Speed Racer is the number one Feel Good movie of all
time. Understandably, you may not feel the same way. We don't have
to talk about it if that's the case. If it's not, let's fuckin'
watch Speed Racer.
My taste in music is fairly varied and Pandora keeps making it
worse. New Wave, irish folk, afro-rock, mariachi, lounge, hiphop,
zydeco. I could keep going but you get the idea. Out of everything,
my favorite band is Clutch. I might like your dad's southern rock
All of my favorite food can be eaten out of a hand and bought off a
truck. Gyros, pizza, tacos, hotdogs. And technically ramen but that
is due to a very specific truck that no longer runs and tricked me
into thinking it was but instead was serving burgers.
