Books: Harry Potter series, Eragon Series, House of Leaves, Ender's
Game series, Moneyball
Shows: The League, iZombie, HIMYM, Walking Dead, Agents of
S.H.I.E.L.D., BMS. I'm not ashamed to admit that I find dumb,
perverted college humor hilarious and love movies and shows that
use it. (Looking at you Seth Rogan.)
Movies: The Guardian, The Great Escape, the new Batman trilogy,
Dodgeball, Inception, The Adjustment Bureau. Anything that either
makes you think hard about something, ties action into a good
story, or does an exceptionally good job at dumb humor.
Music: Anything but "ghetto rap," slow country, or repetitive hip
hop, works for me - I have about 50 wildly different Pandora
stations. Favorites are The Offspring, Toby Keith, Flogging Molly,
Ludo, The Shins, and movie soundtracks (look up Hans Zimmer). I do
enjoy pop music; judge me if you want.
Food: Okra is a terrible food. Seriously, it's not even that
healthy and tastes terrible to boot. Beyond that, I'll try anything
once. Applesauce, anything with a lot of cheese and spicy tang, and
pulled pork are my favorites. I was vegetarian for a few years,
completely respect that decision, and still eat very little meat.
