The books that have probably had the greatest impact on me in the
last few years are the Farseer and Tawny Man trilogies by Robin
Hobb. Also a fan of the Song of Ice and Fire books, though I hit a
bit of reader's apathy at book four and haven't picked it up again
yet. I LOVE Jorge Luis Borges and Mervyn Peake. Also Calvin and
Favorite movie, if I had to pick one, would probably be Shawshank
Redemption. It's such a serious movie, but I love it because it's
about hope and the triumph of character over circumstance, and
friendship. I also think 12 Angry Men is one of the most perfect
movies ever made.
Favorite shows? I re-watch Firefly often, secretly hoping it won't
end abruptly this time around. I recently discovered and watched
the entire run of Community, now I'm on to Parks and Rec. Old
favorites are Friends, Scrubs, Star Trek: TNG and NYPD Blue. I
watch the Late Late Show regularly, more for the host than for the
B celebrities that come on. Favorite animes are Cowboy Bebop, FMA:
Brotherhood, and FLCL... and Cowboy Bebop again.
For music, safe to say I will happily listen to rock and roll and
most of its sub-genres. I don't really have favorite bands or
artists because everyone has a handful of bad/just average songs,
but I do like most things by Pink Ffloyd, Counting Crows and They
Might Be Giants. With other genres I like things on a case-by-case
basis, I can enjoy some rap but not all, same with classical, etc.
My phone is full of film and video game scores and weird silly
songs like Yes We Have No Bananas and Kung Fu Fighting.
