Books: Don't read too much anymore (school does that to you), but
during the summer I'm a huge fan of sci-fi and mystery/thriller
books. John Grisham, Clive Kussler, and Dean Koontz are some of the
stars. Right now I'm going through "Hard Sell," the story of the
Viagra salesperson that inspired the movie "Love and Other
Movies: I come from a bit of a movie buff family, so my movies list
goes beyond a profile blip. The highlights: Pulp Fiction, V for
Vendetta, sci-fi B-movies (Battlefield Earth wasn't that
bad..), Firefly/Serenity, The Fifth Element, The Blues Brothers,
The Prestige, The Boondock Saints, The Princess Bride, The Matrix
trilogy (yes, I said trilogy), and I'll watch anything with George
Clooney, John Travolta, or Denzel Washington in it. Well, I'll
watch them at least once.
TV: I don't watch much TV, but the few shows I do watch, I watch
religiously, which is why I put it on here. Breaking Bad, Firefly,
Dexter, Fringe, NCIS, Burn Notice, Family Guy, Metalocalypse.
Music: Despite my orchestral influences, when it comes down to it I
love music that will blow your head to pieces. Electronic and
metal. I'm not going to be a snob and list all the subgenres of
each because frankly, I'll listen to anything under those two
categories. Specific artists: The Prodigy, Pendulum, Tiesto,
deadmau5, anything put out by the Ministry of Sound, and i'm just
getting into dubstep so I don't really have any specific artists
there (maybe Glitch Mob or Nero), all the way to Trivium,
Archenemy, Dream Theater, Machine Head, Fear Factory, As I Lay
Food: I love food. Grew up fishing, so seafood is definitely at the
top, a little smoked salmon will make my day.
Mexican/Spanish/whatever will burn your mouth is definitely a close
second, with Italian rounding out in a close third (I will eat more
pasta in one sitting than you can even imagine). I love cooking and
make a mean Reuben Roll; if you want one let me know :)
