I don't read as much as I should, but I enjoyed Cloud Atlas, The
Curious Case of the Dog in the Night-Time, The Hobbit (though I
never really made much headway with Lord of the Rings, sadly), and
the Harry Potter series, though a good half of that was read in a
Film-wise, I love Inception, Lucky Number Slevin, Wall-E, Taken,
Spirited Away - lots of different genres. I appreciate film both
from a sort-of snobbish, hipsterish critic sense (if it's actually
good), but also from the point of view that says that films should
be fun to watch - like Rush Hour, or Hot Fuzz.
Don't watch TV much, though the original series of 24 holds a spot
on my shelf, and many of the cartoons from my youth have a special
place in my heart - like Animaniacs, and Invader Zim (though I was
only introduced to that later).
As far as music goes - anything that isn't rap and R&B, though
even on those fronts I can be pleasantly surprised. I quite like a
lot of music from video games, but anything from Muse to Pendulum
to Metallica to Billy Idol to even a bit of Bangles from time to
time. I'm good with most things!
And food - well, again, I'm easy. Not too fond of seafood, but I've
not tried much of it.
Now for the nerdy stuff. Games I guess are my true passion.
Dishonored, FTL: Faster Than Light, Civilization 5, Bastion and
Persona 3 are a bunch I've played recently that I really enjoyed,
but there are plenty of others.
