Books: Neil Gaiman and Jim Butcher off the top of my head
It has occurred to me to simply list a selection from off my
- Justice for Hedgehogs: Ronald Dworkin (a work of ethical
philosophy, not a treatise on hedgehog abuse)
- Freedom Evolves: Dan Dennett (this man astounds me)
- Night Watch: Sergei Lukyanenko (It's in REPRINT!!!)
- Good Omens: Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
- Straw Dogs: John Gray (Arguing against the concept of Human
Recently got dragged (happily) back into comics, recent
- Saga (How great is one series allowed to be?)
- Federal Bureau of Physics (Never have I wanted more for gravity
and time to fail)
Online Comics (one of the best inventions from the internet):
- Tweep (all told, probably my favorite on the list)
- LICD (Just great, occasional nsfw topics)
- Questionable Content (almost too much angst)
- John Allison's anything really, though now it's called Bad
Video Games: The Zelda series is pure nostalgia and Professor
Layton is a new classic. If the names Day of The Tentacle, Indigo
Prophecy, or Advent Rising mean anything to you congratulations on
a well rounded life. Add to that list Duck Hunt, Battletoads/Double
Dragon and Zombies Ate My Neighbors for a good idea of some of my
favorite games over the course of my childhood.
Movies: I love noir, comedies with wit. I'd forgotten how much I
love old Hong Kong Kung Fu movies (back when Chow Yun Fat still
went by Yun Fat Chow in the credits, and poorly dubbed Jackie Chan
If you ask my favorite nerd trilogy I'll answer "where there are no
roads". If only because the second always has snakes.
Television: (disclaimer: don't watch broadcast or cable)
- My mornings usually involve the previous night's Daily
Show/Colbert Report/@Midnight off of Hulu though those can and do
- British: Doctor Who and Sherlock obviously (how great is the
reimagining heavy on the sociopathy?) Moone Boy, IT Crowd, Spy...
The more I think about it the more I feel this list will get WAY
- I am a Firefly, Community, and Arrested Development die-hard
if this makes you bust a gut we'll get along fine:
Music: Mix of classic rock, indie rock, folk, blues, bluegrass for
fun. Sounds Hipster when I put it that way lol.
Sampling of songs:
JJ Grey and Mofro
Pearl and the Beard
The Lone Bellow - Button
Food: I like to cook, need I say more? Perhaps I do, I love stews,
followed closely by soups, though I draw the line at chowders. I
make a mean Coca-Cola taco and a great Guinness beef stew.
I'm currently working out the kinks in my head for a Kiwano Melon
Taco... I'm determined to make it work.
