Books: Haven't read nearly enough since finishing school, but some
of my old favourites would be anything by Douglas Adams (The
Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, etc), the His Dark Materials
series, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, and To
Kill a Mockingbird.
Movies: Usually things that are a bit different to the norm. Fight
Club, Donnie Darko, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Scott
Pilgrim... Also Pixar and Disney animated movies, and a few anime
films like Summer Wars and The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.
TV Shows: I'll have to categorise these, since I watch far too
Comedy - Arrested Development, Community, Parks and Recreation, 30
Rock, Party Down, Archer, and anything else that's clever, original
and does not have a laugh track/audience. I'm currently obsessed
with Gravity Falls, Rick and Morty, and Silicon Valley.
- Too many to
name. Fullmetal Alchemist, FLCL, Cowboy Bebop, Welcome to the NHK,
Baccano, Durarara and Steins;Gate are a few favourites.
Drama/Dramedy - Joss Whedon (Buffy/Angel/Firefly/Dollhouse/Dr
Horrible), of course. Bryan Fuller's shows (Dead Like Me, Pushing
Daisies) if they didn't keep getting cancelled so damn fast. Doctor
Who/Torchwood. Chuck. Veronica Mars. Breaking Bad.
- This isn't
actually part of the question! Disappointing, OKCupid. Anyway, I've
found lots of favourites over the years, but I'd start by
, Super Smash Bros
, and anything else awesome I can find time for. I like
games that incorporate lots of puzzles, but are not strictly puzzle
games - hence Zelda, as well as games like Portal and Braid, and
Adventure games (LucasArts/Telltale/Double Fine).
Music: I'm bad at this. Don't really have favourite bands or
genres. I tend to mainly listen to music that I've heard in some
other context, like a movie/TV show/game. I'm somewhat obsessed
with music used for storytelling purposes. Also, musicals are
