Books: Mostly Art(and other skill) Technique books, with an older
collection of fantasy novels I randomly got into, but I really
mostly read non-fiction or realistic fiction. I have read a good
sci-fi book or two as well.
Movies: Like with most things in my life, I have unrealistic
standards. I'm great if you like witty comments but not so great if
you're really serious about your movie watching. I'll respect
movies you'd been waiting awhile to see though.
Some Movies to note:
(In no particular order) Rocky, Star Wars, Sin City, The World
According to Garp, Brazil, Alien, Clockwork Orange, Fern Gully,
TMNT, Terminator series, Die Hard series, Zoolander, Most Star
Treks, Monty Python movies, OldBoy, bunch of Martial arts movies,
Ace Ventura, Seven, and I always have a soft spot for Fifth Element
and anything Wes Anderson. Guilty pleasure would be any superhero
movie, even the bad ones. Typically I hate B-movies though.
Music, I like, has changed so much over the years. My first likes
have a lot of classic rock routes from Bluesy Southern rock like
The Allman Brothers, Bad Company, Lynyrd Skynyrd to 60's rock like
Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendricks, etc. Also love
for Bowie, Klaus Nami, and Queen. Beatles too. Blue Oyster Cult..
In my embarrassing high school phase, my music was fairly 90's
angst ridden with; Marylin Manson, Hole, Kittie, ICP, Beastie Boys,
Korn, Limp Bizkit, Nirvana, Cake and similar stuff. I still like
some of the timeless songs but damn. I bet I wore a lot of baggy
black layers then too.
Few years ago I discovered my love for obscure 90's indie and surf
rock with some more current stuff like Action Plus, Nada Surf,
April March, Apollo Sunshine, Amy Millan, Grand Buffet, Bjork, The
Books, Chess Club, Leftover Crack, Pulp, and a lot more like
I'm still into that stuff, but, right now I'm really into techno
type stuff for some reason. Daft Punk, Justice, DeadMaus, Fatboy
Slim. Also really into M.I.A. and Lady Sovereign. Getting into rap
more too in general. Rediscovering a lot of fun 90's rap and
dubstep is really fun. Lots of female indie singers too like Feist
and Yeah yeah yeahs.
More more recently I like Die Antwoord and the funkier sounding
dubstep in the Bassnectar and PANtYRAiD range. I should also take a
second to note that I really don't care for most rock genres at all
and I'm not just saying that to push an opinion because I don't
care what music makes you happy, I just want to avoid having an
awkward moment of disappointment if I can. You know how precarious
those first dates can be.
I don't really like one band definitively. Just songs here and
there as I discover sounds that move me.
I'm a lot deeper then this section suggests.
