For books, one of my favorites is John Hodgman's trilogy collection
of "Complete World Knowledge," but I love humor books in general. I
grew up with the Harry Potter series and consequently like it quite
a bit. Admittedly I'm not as well read as I'd like to claim I am,
so to remedy that I just bought a Kindle, and I am currently open
to your suggestions! Please, no Stephanie Meyer.
As for movies I like comedy, adventure, animation, musicals,
fantasy. I adore Pixar's films, especially Wall-E and Up. I
un-ironically hold the belief that Pootie Tang is one of the
greatest films of our generation. Basically, I love movies that are
funny for all the wrong reasons, especially when they get the MST3K
or Rifftrax treatment.
I don't watch a ton of TV but I'm just getting into Arrested
Development thanks to the magic of Netflix, I realize I'm 10 years
late or whatever but I admit my younger self would never have
understood half these jokes when a majority of it was brand
There's a lot of music I love, across many, many genres. From the
trashiest of pop, to classical, which was obviously the trashy pop
music of it's time. As well as 80's and 90's rock. Rap and R&B
to a lesser extent. I'm open to suggestions in this respect as
well; I'll listen to anything, but please don't be distraught if I
say I'm not into it.
I adore spicy food. I enjoy Cuban, Mexican, Italian. My favorite
dish is probably Rabo Encedido. I'd like to learn how to cook, so
that's definitely on the agenda for the near future.
Since it fits here, I like video games too, I don't like calling
myself a "gamer" though. A certain stigma has developed with that
term over the years, and I no longer want to associate with them
beyond the fact that I like playing games at all.
