Books: The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, A Song of Ice and Fire,
Harry Potter, most things by Terry Pratchett, most things by James
Michener, The Joke by Milan Kundera. Most books I like tend to fall
into the fantasy realm, though I like historical books as
well--both fiction and non-fiction.
Movies: Assorted B-Movies, Goodfellas, most things Tarantino, the
(original) Star Wars trilogy, Beetlejuice, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure.
In general, the movies I like best tend to be sci-fi, comedies, and
documentaries. I'm hardly a film buff or anything, though, so I
still haven't seen many of the classics.
Shows: The Simpsons (seasons 1-9), Futurama (seasons 1-4), The
Venture Bros, Arrested Development, Seinfeld, Game of Thrones, Home
Movies, Rick & Morty, Metalocalypse, Harvey Birdman, South Park
Music: Progressive rock (Yes, Jethro Tull, King Crimson, Van der
Graaf Generator, Pink Floyd, Rush); Progressive metal (Dream
Theater, Atheist, Opeth, Cynic); "Classic" rock (The Beatles, Led
Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Kinks); '60s psychedelic
rock (The Who, The Zombies, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix); Garage rock
(13th Flood Elevators, The White Stripes, The Action). I also
dabble in a bit of this and that, including most other subgenres of
metal, jazz and jazz-fusion, and folk.
Food: Some of my favorite cuisines include Polish, Indian, Italian,
Thai, and Georgian. I also love to cook. When I cook, I mostly make
Italian and Thai food. I'm a very adventurous eater and love trying
