I'm not great at deciding that I like A better than B, and C is my
favorite. I'll instead inflict upon you a list of positive
Books: Dune, Tom Robbins, Michener, Phillip K. Dick, Illuminatus!
Trilogy, Gaiman, Book of the New Sun, Herodotus...I find it really
easy to get into a decent book. Shakespeare is decent even when on
the page! Tennessee William's Glass Menagerie was great.
(Mostly). New Dragon Gate Inn was a lot of fun, and I like Hero's
(propagantastic) take on a classic historic episode. A Knight's
Tale. I think Inglorious Basterds was a better movie than it got
credit for, but I wouldn't say "favorite." Dancer in the Dark. I'm
a sucker for Star
, and will use all the mental flexibility I have to work
around the glaring problems of the new ones. A Streetcar Named
Desire (original film version) is a PHENOMENAL production.
TV Shows: The Wire, Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Venture Brothers. The
(original) Prisoner. Survivorman, 'cause Les Stroud is my hero. I
don't feel like I have a very deep attachment to TV, although
recently I've been falling in love with Doctor Who
. Game o' Thrones is being
Music: TMBG, Splashdown, Strauss, Atom and his Package, Live,
R.E.M., Bjork, Tom Waits, Universal Hall Pass, Led Zeppelin. Dead
Milkmen and/or Kennedys. Jim White
! I have a lot of fun playing
M.S.I. once every four months.
Games: Metal Gear Solid series, Smash Brothers Brawl.
Warmachine/Hordes. Settlers of Catan. Infinity. Presently running
some Polish-esque mercenaries through a devastated town in
Mordheim. Developing a taste for backgammon, Humanity's oldest
Food: Thai beef salad; barbecued pork steak, plums, feta and
Stilton cheese, swanky coffees of whatever type,
espresso/cappuchino that doesn't taste like charcoal. FRESH
VEGETABLES. French bread, horseradish mustard, Polish cookies that
my mom makes around Christmas whose name I can't spell.
