Books: Jane Eyre is probably my favorite classic; recently read
Fahrenheit 451 and thought it was excellent. Haven't done much
"pleasure" reading recently, though. I've been reading a lot of
dance education and sustainable-living books.
Movies/series: In no particular order - FIREFLY (and Serenity),
Braveheart, the LoTR trilogy, Armageddon, The Fifth Element, The
Princess Bride, "V" for Vendetta, Fight Club, Dogma, Moulin Rouge,
Titanic and The Notebook (which, I guess, makes me girly... but
whatever). I love Babylon 5 and I have seen all StarTrek ever
produced. Full Metal Alchemist, Fight Club, Die Hard, The Dark
Knight, Ghost in the Shell, the Bourne trilogy, the first Saw
Music: My library has a wide range of genres from country to rap to
industrial. My favorite artists are as follows: Evanescence, Linkin
Park, Fort Minor, Powerman5000, Nine Inch Nails, Rammstein, Hanzel
und Gretyl, Marilyn Manson, Smashing Pumpkins, Within Temptation,
and Jonathan Coulton. I also enjoy an occasional musical
soundtrack, like Sweeny Todd or Jane Eyre (the Broadway musical). I
love opera, especially French Romantic (read: dramatic, everybody
dies), but don't listen to it much at present. I am also very fond
of my belly dance music - Solace, Beats Antique, Pentaphobe etc.
Oh, and the Bastion soundtrack kicks ass.
Food: I'll eat just about anything, but I'm not really into seafood
or spicy foods.

loss of faith for me, it was a discovery of self. I had faith that
