Favorite series is A Song of Ice and Fire by George Martin. Just
finished The Dresden Files and working on The Iron Druid
Chronicles. In terms of books that changed who I was and how I saw
the world; The God Delusion by Dawkins and God Is Not Great by
Hitchens. Honorable mention to Born to Run by Christopher McDougall
For movies, my top 5 would look something like - Green Street
Hooligans, Gladiator, Pool Hall Junkies, Friday Night Lights, and
Thankyou for Smoking. Favorite movies that are more recent would be
Premium Rush, End of Watch, The Cabin in the Woods. Goon (best role
Sean William Scott has ever done) and Silver Linings Playbook in
terms of hitting me right in the feels.
Music is a big deal to me. I have so many favorite groups based on
the memory they bring back or the mood their music personifies.
Favorites would be: The Gaslight Anthem, The Dangerous Summer, The
Narrative, Lydia, The Format, Four Year Strong, The Forecast, New
Found Glory, and Explosions in the Sky. Recently saw The Dangerous
Summer at the Orpheum.
TV Shows - Dr Who, Being Human (US), Game of Thrones, and Suits are
the current standouts. And of course The Daily Show religiously.
Also, So You Think You Can Dance is a guilty pleasure.
