I love to read. Normally I enjoy fantasy,
science-fiction, and humor. Some specific examples are Neverwhere
by Neil Gaiman, Lord of the Rings, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy,
, The Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin.
Anything by Terry Pratchett or Robert Heinlein. I also loved
Michael Chabon's Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. I'm also a huge
comic book nerd, and can talk your ear off about them if you let
me. Some faves include almost anything from Alan Moore or Brian K.
Vaughan, Sandman, Y the Last Man, The Umbrella Academy
pretty much any Avenger book, Preacher and Runaways.
I'm also a bit of movie geek. And love everything
from dumb comedies, cheesy horror, riveting dramas,
balls-to-the-walls action and event the occasional
thought-provoking documentary. And having Netflix for a while now,
my list of great films or films I love (not necessairly always the
same thing) has grown considerably. Big ones for me include The
Avengers, Royal Tenenbaums, Almost Famous, Moulin Rouge, Batman
Begins and Dark Knight, Serenity, Iron Man, Kevin Smith's and
Quentin Tarentino's films. The first two X-men and Spider-Man films
(what's with the third parts being so disappointing? But X-Men:
First Class was a ton of fun!), Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The
Ring and the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy, Zombieland, (500)
Days of Summer, Captain America, Thor.
Not reallly music, but my radio is most often set to
NPR. More on topic: Jonathan Coulton, The Beatles, Bif Naked, Billy
, Garbage, Professor Elemental, Barenaked Ladies, Foo
Fighters, Bowling For Soup
, Weezer, Tori
Amos. I'm one of those types that can listen to most anything and
Food wise I'm willing to try anything, but tend to
stick with the classics. Pizza, Cheesecake, a good Philly
Cheesesteak sandwhich (I'm picky with my Phillies), Mexican. Every
once in a while I get a craving for sushi.
Right now the big shows for me are Doctor Who
, How I Met
Your Mother, Leverage, Parks & Rec, Burn Notice, and Community.
I recently cancelled cable so I'm behind on some shows, but hey,
that's what Netflix is for. For the "Gone but not forgotten" shows
I love all of Joss Whedon's shows, especially Firefly, I'm also a
fan of MST3k, Veronica Mars, Pushing Up Daisies, Lost, Arrested
Development, Titus and Freaks & Geeks.
I can play a lot of games but I tend to lean
towards RPGs and platformers. The Final Fantasy series, Ratchet
& Clank, Psychonauts, World of Warcraft, Metal Gear Solid
series, and Rock Band are all favorites. I currently own each of
the big three console systems.
