As I don't commute at present I don't read anywhere near as much as
I used to. The pile of books next to me contains George R. R.
Martin, Terry Goodkind, Terry Pratchett (twice), Richard Dawkins,
Lawrence Krauss, a book on professional poker, and a sudoku book.
Make of that what you will.
I'll give almost any film a go, and my favourites list tends to
change a lot. Generally sci-fi and fantasy films score well with
me, and comedies. I confess to being partial to a good romcom too.
Anything by Pixar is great.
Recently I'be been watching House of Cards, Archer, Dr Who, Family
Guy, and random things on Netflix.
Music is a bit of a wide one. I'll listen to all sorts, and don't
really have a favourite genre. Recently I've mostly been listening
to Hammock and M83, which are post rock and electro respectively. I
also like a splash of classic rock, metal, various soundtracks and
musicals, folk, and even the odd bit of classical. I've yet to find
an opera that I like, nor much country, but you never know, there
could be some out there!
I love japanese food, and cake of almost any variety.
