I'm pretty big on sci-fi/fantasy, military/history, and
mind-opening books and movies. But what I love most is a good
comedy/satire cheesy horror movies are also up there. Pretty much
anything by R. A. Wilson, R. A. Heinlein, Timothy Zahn, Terry
Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Patrick Rothfuss, or George R. R. Martin
will find itself in my hands at some point. Vonnegut has always
been near and dear to my heart, and Heller's Catch-22 has mirrored
much of my life.
For movies, I'm a sucker for series, and anything thats got a good
solid plot. I'm also not above musicals.
I've been following The Walking Dead and wait with baited breath
for every new episode of Game of Thrones.
Music. I love ska, mostly the stuff from the 80s/90s. Huge Marcy
Playground fan, so far I've seen them twice and planning on a third
show whenever I find them touring again. My tastes are rather broad
though, mostly anything that isn't a modern attempt at rap or
country. Lately I've found myself listening to a lot more folksy
stuff. Like, Stan Rogers, Great Big Sea, and lots of traditional
sea shanties. Mostly because I can't stop giggling at songs when
they describe venereal disease using nautical terminology.
Recently saw Reel Big Fish/Less Than Jake/Authority Zero and hoping
to maybe see them when they come back through NYC for their
snowed-out tour stop.
FOOD! I love Italian food and I will never turn down a good steak.
I'm always open to try something new though! I'm a sucker for Thai,
sushi, and pho. Every trip home to NYC, where I can enjoy real
pizza/bagels whenever the fancy strikes, makes me homesick the
instant I set out on any trip.
