Help your potential matches find common interests.
These are all abbreviated lists! I have many favorites, but walls
of text are liable to cause injury.
Books: The Martian, Ender's Game, Foundation, Flowers for Algernon.
I'm a huge fan of well-developed plot twists.
Movies: LotR, Matrix, Star Wars (yes, the trinity). All the Marvel
movies. Team America, Bridesmaids, and Austin Powers are my
favorite comedies. Big Hero 6 and Incredibles. I love seeing
movies, and invested in a nice home theater setup to get maximum
enjoyment from them (as well as TV shows and games!).
TV: Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, Flash, Arrow, Downton Abbey, Mad
Men, Family Guy, South Park, New Girl, Arrested Development. TV has
gotten seriously great!
Games: Zelda, Final Fantasy, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Metroid. Just
the tip of the iceberg though :).
Music: older Muse, Moby, Nightwish, Hans Zimmer, Yasunori Mitsuda,
Shiny Toy Guns, Infected Mushroom, Metric, Orbital... my favorite
music has many layers that all work together to achieve sonic
perfection. Apparently I also like modal harmonies. Thank
pandora.com for that analysis :).
Food: I love all kinds. Sushi, a medium-rare filet mignon, or
perfectly seared foie gras are always good, and my favorite
restaurant is Fearing's in uptown Dallas. I strike a balance
between going with foods I've enjoyed before and experimenting with
new (sometimes even scary) menu items.
