Books: Honestly I haven't come across many books I haven't liked,
even books that were assigned reading in high school. My favorite
series hands down is the Odd Thomas series by dean koontz. The man
also happens to be one of my favorite authors. Other favorites
Steven King, Michael Crichton, Anne Rice, but I'll really read
anything from sci-fi fantasy to classic literature.
Movies: Just some of my favorites, Infernal affairs, Boondock
Saints, Shawn of the Dead, Daddy Day Care, Unforgiven, Seven, Iron
Man, The vengance trilogy, Fulltime Killers, WALL-E, Kung Fu
Hustle, The Star Wars saga (Although I agree that the prequels are
mostly crap I love it because it is star wars) Back to the Future
trilogy, Leon the professional, Indiana jones saga (and no that's
not where the name came from) Anchorman, Memento, Finding Nemo,
Saving Silverman, Reservior Dogs, The Incredibles, Batman begins,
The Dark Knight, Tim Burtons Batman films, These are all just off
the top of my head.
TV: Has to be mentioned for the simple fact of the simpsons. My
favorite show ever, of all time. (points for that reference)
Let me put it this way I own every season on dvd and buy new
seasons very shortly after they are released. If you can understand
the simpsons I mean really understand it even when the writing
started getting weak then you've got a good shot at understanding
my sense of humor. I also enjoy Lost, Weeds, Heroes, Entourage, 30
rock, How I met your mother (kinda), Nip/Tuck, Spaced, Party Down,
Waiting to see Freaks and Geeks (Stupid netflix)
Music: I give everything a chance but I do happen to gravitate
towards bands rather than artists. My favorite band is Weezer,
Second is Muse. After that there's no real order.
Food wise I'll try anything once, but if I dont like it there's
usually no going back, and if I like it I'll eat it.
