(Books)Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and Angel comics. I also read
books about my other interests, mostly books by comedians. Sarah
Silverman, Tina Fey for example and I feel like I'm constantly
performing stand-up comedy anyway. I don't really read that much
though, the reason is my other interests take up too much time and
with books, especially when it comes to novels I have trouble
keeping track of things. The characters biographical details,
appearance, and even their names, locations etc. so often I can be
half way through a book and not feel like I've actually read it. I
thought I should give an explanation because when someone hears "I
don't read" they automatically assume that person is stupid. I know
that's what I assume.
(Movies) Serenity, Dark City, Gattaca, Dirty
Work, Office Space, About A Boy, 12 Monkeys, Changing Lanes, Donnie
Darko, Mean Girls, Shoot 'Em Up, The Cabin in the Woods, The
Avengers, Much Ado About Nothing, The Hunger Games, Mad Max Fury
(Music) I don't really listen to music. Probably because it always
seemed so subjective. I can't even say why I'd like or dislike
something so I've never been comfortable with music being what
represents me to people. People are also more passionate about what
they do and don't like and I didn't want to get into that. I don't
like a lot anyway. I couldn't even fill the half gigabyte iPod
shuffle model from 2005.
I did love the show Love Monkey though, which was about a guy who's
an A&R rep for a music label. I'm a mystery.
So the only music I own is by comedians, like Bo Burnham and
and Oats, and a DVD of Video Games Live which I saw twice in
the same weekend.
(TV) Any show made by Joss Whedon, Buffy, (Buffy the Vampire
Slayer, not the district attorney) Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse, and most with
Tim Miner, like Angel, Firefly, The Inside and Wonderfalls. I also like stuff
from Bryan Fuller like Wonderfalls, Hannibaland Pushing Daisies. There's a lot
of overlap on those shows because I've assumed people who make good
stuff work with good people and I'm usually right. Continuing this
over written list, Archer, The Daily Show, Community, House, The Soup, Terminator:
The Sarah Conner Chronicles, The 4400, Battlestar Galactica,
Doctor Who, the
various Star Treks, a couple of Gundam series. Veronica Mars, plus
the movie which I helped fund and got two tee shirts for it. Parks
and Recreation, Lost, Daredevil. I watch documentaries because
learning is fun!
The three shows I'd say are of high enough quality that to not like
them would be a personal failing rather than a flaw with the show
are, Veronica Mars, Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, and
(Games) Another invented category. Civilization, old Final Fantasy,
Dragon Quest, Chrono Trigger/Cross, Mass Effect, XCOM. I also like
Master of Orion, but each version manages to make some mistake that
taints the game in some way. The World Ends With You
is probably my favorite single game.
(Food)I don't like a lot of food. I'm not trying to be difficult, I
just don't like things and it's an inconvenient way to live but
people act like it's a problem I'm creating for them. Griping done.
I eat salsa almost every day. Other things I eat often are
hamburgers, pizza, pasta, yogurt, waffles, chocolate chip cookies
and muffins, and smoothies. I oft talk with the girls at the
downtown smoothie place. I eat caffeinated chocolate in the morning
because coffee it too bitter, and I don't want to be bitter.
These lists are not comprehensive, or necessarily up to date. I'm
forgetful, even with my favorite things.
