I don't understand people who haven't seen Star Wars. Doesn't it get beamed into your brain as soon as you're old enough to comprehend movies? I'm known to quote Jurassic Park incessantly. I like off-kilter movies like Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and The Fifth Element.
I tend to read mostly sci-fi. I like a lot of Michael Crichton's books ("Sphere" was a real page turner for me), the Ender's Game series, and The Kingkiller Chronicle. I'm a sporadic reader, so I like things that grab me and suck me in to find out what happens next. I believe this makes me delightfully unrefined.
STEVEN UNIVERSE. I ain't playing, this is my favorite show since Firefly.
I also watch Arrow, binged Supernatural last year, and I tend to enjoy anime; Cowboy Bebop, Big O, and Psycho-Pass are favorites.
Dire Straits is the best band in the universe. This is one of the few such claims I will make with absolute confidence. If I had to pick one band to listen to for the rest of my life, that's it, but I would miss the likes of Elton John, Tom Petty, Journey, Brandi Carlile, Will Hoge... and a whole mess of others. If I had to pick one album for the rest of my life, I would gather freedom fighters to start the resistance, because screw that.
Hey, can I put video games in here? Metal Gear is about the only franchise that I'll really geek out about these days. I freaking love Metal Gear. I've put more hours into MGS5 than is safe to admit in a dating profile.
Wait, I need four more? As you wish.
Glasses, progress, big words, and the Oxford comma.
... you roll on shabbos.
... you know kung fu.
... you figure if you're going to make a time machine, you might as well do it with some style!
