First off: i've seen the musical episode of Buffy and i liked it.
Apparently that says something about me. ;)
In short: i like SciFi & Fantasy (including Steampunk,
Cyberpunk, etc.), Action, some Romance, music across all
Now feel free to skip this whole monstrosity. Apparently i'm
extremly bad at defining my tastes with just a few examples, so i
get what i'd call "datarrhea", when it's about stuff like this. If
you read on: you've been warned. ;)
LotR, Star Wars 4-6, Star Trek series, japanese (!) Godzilla, Akira
Kurosawa-movies, Equilibrium, Dredd, Studio Ghibli animes, Lethal
Weapon, anything with Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill (they're
hilarious in German!), the new Batman movies, The amazing
Spiderman, The usual suspects, Hot fuzz&Sean of the dead, The
forbidden kingdom, Inception, Cloud atlas, The Gamers: Dorkness
rising, Star Dust, Aliens, Dark City,...
If it's fantasy, sci-fi, anime or "mindless" action (preferably
from the 80s), chances are, i'll like it. Even if i don't, i've
probably seen it. Seriously, ask me. :)
I also like romantic movies like 500 Days (of Summer), The Silver
Linings Playbook or The Vow and the odd drama. I loved 50/50.
Oh yeah...and i like dancing movies. Guess i'm embracing my
feminine side as i get older or something. ;)
SciFi, Fantasy, Cyberpunk, Steampunk, some historical and crime
stuff mixed in. I really enjoy alternate-worlds-stories, like the
Thursday Next books, where everything is just a bit (or a bit more)
off from what we know.
The lord of the rings, Kingkiller chronicle (can't wait for part
3!), The Gentleman Bastards Series, Discworld, Artemis Fowl, A song
of ice and fire, The sword of thruth, Thursday Next series, His
dark materials, Dune, old Perry Rhodan books, anything by Dan
Abnett, Joe Abercrombie, Tad Williams, Trudy Canavan, Micheal A.
Stackpole, Jasper Fforde.
I like the Battletech and Shadowrun series.
Basically, again, if it's scifi or fantasy, i've read it and more
often than not i like it. And i really read a lot (i have easily
read over a thousand books so far).
I also follow several webcomics:
Order of the stick (pure genius!), Questionable Content,
Weregeek, Skullkickers, Goblins, Ravens dojo, Least i could
Comedy stuff: The Big Bang Theory, How i met your mother, Friends,
Pushing Daisies, Phineas and Ferb, Flight of the Conchords, The
Finder, Community, Raising Hope, IT Crowd.
Again, SciFi/Fantasy like Firefly, Star trek (all series except
Voyager), Battlestar Galactica, Terra Nova, Stargate + Atlantis,
Fringe, Haven, Dollhouse, Sanctuary, Moonlight, Misfits, Buffy
+Angel, The Walking Dead.
Crime series: CSI (NOT CSI Miami though, that's just awful),
Castle, Burn Notice, NCIS, NCIS Miami, Hawaii five-0.
Old series i still very much enjoy: "Die Zwei"(The Persuaders, much
funnier in German), A-team, Mash, Macgyver, Saber Rider.
Just to name a few... plus lots of anime series...
My taste in music is all over the place. I don't really stick to
any genres or anything.
Examples: Kraftklub, Angus&Julia Stone, Blumentopf, Deichkind,
Duran Duran, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Eminem, The Ting Tings,
Johnny Cash, Beatsteaks, White Stripes, The Asteroids Galaxy Tour,
Beastie Boys, The pretty Reckless, Looptroop Rockers, Gotye,
Blumio, Abney Park, Flash&Gordon, Blondie, David Guetta,
Jennifer Rostock, La Roux, Nouvelle Vague, Oh Land, Reverend and
the makers, Sóley, Shaban&Captain Peng, Moop Mama,...
Food: i eat almost anything, except for spinach, liver and fennel.
Woohoo, finally managed to go vegetarian! No more eating poor
innocent animals. Not missing meat much but a lot of that evil
stuff is quite delicious; for completions sake. :)
Whew, long list...to anyone who actually reads this: i'm sorry, but
they're all important. ;) Be thankful i spared you the other
thousands of things i really like. I guess i'm really media-phile.
