a) Anything fun to read. I don't usually stick to an author, but
sample a lot of random or new. Douglas Adams, Stephen King, Ray
Bradbury, Orson Scott Card...These are authors I've returned to
repeatedly, but they aren't the only awesome ones I've come across.
I'm sure this is true with everyone, right?
b) I like weird and unique and whatever else is neat. Try me. This
is part of the fun, right? You're not even reading this section
anyway I'll bet. ;)
...You only stopped because there was a visually interesting winky
c) All sorts of stuff! The Decemberists, Frank Sinatra, Postal
Service, April March, Air, Concretes, Matt & Kim,
I like lots of other things, but those just happened to be ones I
read on my recent playlists.
d) I like to make things and then force other people to eat it.
Usually they don't mind too much.
