Books: I enjoy some of the classics of science
fiction from Heinlein, HG Wells, Asimov, Douglas Adams and anyone
in between but also the newer stuff like Neil Gaiman, GRR Martin
and others. I appreciate the sense of work ethic and personal
responsibility presented in it, I think the world would be a better
place if more people aspired to those ideals. I'm also a fan of the
Harry Potter series, Lord of the Rings, and like the Dresden Files
books. I wish I had more time to read, but I rarely seem to have
time to settle down with a book. I've read through all the
published "Game of Thrones" books and am looking forward to the
next season on TV!
Television: Doctor Who/Torchwood, Big Bang Theory,
Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Spartacus, South Park,
The Office, Stargate Atlantis, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly,
Supernatural, and oddly enough The Waltons. I think there is a
sense of honor and community presented in the last that has been
lost due to cynicism. I find "Regular Show" hilarious and there's
also something to be said for "Adventure Time" and it's weirdly
psychedelic world too.
Movies: Good action movies, horror, science
fiction, historical, and even a few of the 'chick flicks' as long
as they don't become too sappy or unbelievable. I think the Marvel
Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies are the best thing to happen to
films since the addition of sound. What can top movies that
continue to build on one large world, with more movies planned for
years to come?? It's all just blowing my mind at the
interconnectivity with them and things like "Agents of SHIELD" and
Music: I listen to a lot, but recall names of few.
I enjoy the CruxShadows in particular and enjoy attending their
concerts at DragonCon every year. My Ipod is a bit eclectic, and
I'm always trying to add something new to it. There's little rhyme
or reason for what I like it seems, some songs just speak to me and
demand my attention. For instance, P!nk and Labiach has found its
way into my rotation.
Food: I like to go out and try new - and new to me
- places. Taste of Thai has a good selection of dishes. I also
enjoy the traditional American, Italian, Greek, and Japanese. The
Sitar in Knoxville is also pretty good, though the spices are a bit
heavier than I prefer.
