I mostly read non-fiction books about non-monogamy, polyamory,
personal development and modern autobiographies. Although, I also
really enjoy some fiction... Ready Player One, A Song of Ice and
Fire and the Harry Potter books.
I watch pretty much everything except most horror and the sappiest
of romantic comedies. Everything else is fair game...good, bad,
foreign, documentaries, everything. My favorites are Pulp Fiction,
Fight Club, High Fidelity, Clerks, Children of Men, Kingdom of
Heaven, The Lion King, American Beauty, Shawshank Redemption...and
all things Disney/Marvel/Star Wars.
My music taste are really eclectic. I get into a bit of everything
except new country and most new hip-hop. I'm always looking for
songs to workout and run to, so I buy lots of albums just to get
that one song that'll push me at the finish line.
I'll sit down in front of Netflix and marathon through seasons of
shows I've heard are good. (Lost, House of Cards, Firefly,
Battlestar Galactica, Archer, Orange is the New Black, Breaking
Bad, Avatar) But, outside of ESPN and Parks & Rec, I don't keep
up with a lot of new shows.
My video game collection is pretty varied. I'm into sports games,
puzzle/strategy, third-person shooters and action games, but my
real love is being able to sink 100+ hours into any RPG with a
complex story and quality character development. Which is to say, I
love Bioware games.
A lot of my media intake these days comes in podcast form. I
regularly listen to Savage Lovecast (Dan Savage), Life on the
Swingset, Girl on Guy (Aisha Tyler), The Moth, Grantland/ESPN,
Podcast Beyond, IGN Gamescoop and Dave Ramsey.
