I enjoy reading, so picking out only a few authors is difficult;
I've read quite a bit of science fiction, but I like books in
almost all genres. Still, to name a few authors that I really like;
Lem, Heinlein, Bradbury, Calvino, Palahniuk, Greg Egan and Neil
Gaiman- they're all on the top of my list, but there’s so many
other great authors out there, and so many others who’ve just had
some one-off stories that either made me think or drew me into
their worlds for a little while.
I also like nonfiction, either themed histories (like Kurlanski’s
“Salt”) or documentaries on something novel; events, places,
cultures, or things. It all depends on what looks
I’m not a big movie buff, I prefer books. Still, I like mostly
action/adventure or comedies, typical guy stuff, though sometimes I
get into the mood for art-house or horror movies.
My favorite movie so far is either Casablanca or Groundhog day, (so
much for action-adventure and comedy) though I can’t decide which
of the two is better, there are very few movies that I’ve watched
more than once, and both of them seem to be movies that I’ll find
myself watching again every few years.
Certainly, I like it, and different sorts of music too. But I don't
get too confused by it or invest identity with something that
someone else might very well decide is just noise.
Still, I like a few artists more than others. Counting Crows is at
the top of my list right now, but it's certainly not the first time
I've made a list.
Yes please. I'm a very happy omnivore, and get along best with
others of the same culinary bent. I enjoy sitting down to a table
for nutrition and pleasant conversation, and never come to the
dinner table in search of an argument.
I like Italian food best, but I like pretty much everything that’s
well prepared. I really like sushi, and if there’s a place near me
that does it well, I end up going there often. Of course, I’ve
never tried to make the stuff myself.
So far, I don’t think I’ve found a cooking style that’s disagreed
with me, the only thing I will not get near is brains, and, you
know, I don’t care how good it might be, I just won’t eat 'em.
