Books: Deadpool graphic novels, House of Leaves
(seriously, read it) The Passage, The Twelve, any of the Dirk Pitt
novels, The Halo Encyclopedia, the book versions of web comics and
blogs (XKCD, Saturday Morning Breakfast Serial, Garfield Minus
Garfield, The Interne t is a Playground), books of useful and
useless facts, and the Pocket Reference.
I like a LOT of movies. My favorites are psychological thrillers
(like stuff by David Lynch and David Fincher) and horror. I like a
lot of the classics like The Shining, The Pink Panther (with Peter
Sellers), as well as stuff like the Jason Bourne Series. I like
Lord of the Ring and Star Wars, and I own a copy of the Weird Al
move UHF. I also have a guilty pleasure of watching over-the-top
Japanese gore movies. They are overly violent, but so fake it's
TV: Arrested Development, It's Always Sunny in
Philadelphia, Workaholics, Community, Game of Thrones, Fringe,
Warehouse 13, Girls, The Ricky Gervais Show, Frisky Dingo, Top Gear
(UK), Lost, Dexter, Weeds, House, Futurama, 30Rock, Venture Bros,
MST3K (Space Mutiny and The Final Sacrifice being two of my
absolute favorites), X-Files, and pretty much anything
produced/written by Dave Willis. Also pretty much anything by Tim
& Eric. I like a lot more TV shows, so if you want to know if I
like a certain show, just ask.
Music: Mostly rock. Chevelle, Foo Fighters, Sick
Puppies, stuff like that. I also frequently listen to Dubstep,
mostly UK artists, like Flux Pavillion and Nero. I do have eclectic
tastes in music, so I can be found listening to a wide variety. For
example: I have Mastadon, Hanson, and Boston on my iPod. Don't hate
on Hanson. They are talented.
Food: Anything, as long as its not grotesquely bad
for me, or horrendously spicy. I have to confess I did order the
The Coronary Bypass at The Vortex in Atlanta. I could only finish
half of it.
I also love trying new and different kinds of beer. Beer is food,
Video games: First of all: The Halo Series. Not
just the games (minus Halo Wars, not much of an RTS fan) but the
suplemental material as well (the books, cosplay, etc.). I wouldn't
say I'm obsessed with Halo; in fact I spend very little of my time
on Halo-related things. Being an introvert, Playing Halo in middle
school allowed me friendships and social interactions (and
acceptance) that I would otherwise have not experienced, so it
means a great deal to me. Minecraft, most Valve Games, and Modern
Warfare. I also like the classics like Tetris and Super Mario.
