Videogames: I like sidescrolling platformers and sidescrolling
adventures; classics such as your Marios and your Dankey Kangs and
Castlevanias, along with some oddities here and there – recently
Battleblock Theatre, Risk of Rain. I enjoy multiplayer
bizarro-fests; Dokapon Kingdom, Smash Bros.. RPGs and FPSes though
both of the older variety.
Tabletop Gaming: GURPS, D&D, Warhammer, CoC, Mordheim. GMing
GURPS again is a dream of mine. I can never find the players or the
time. Mostly the time.
Books: My mind was formed earlier in life by the likes of Robert
Howard, Haruki Murakami, Terry Pratchett, Ann McCaffrey, H.P.
Lovecraft, and Tolkien. I'm a bit of a LOTR nerd, and also a fan of
fantasy art books (my most positive take from the tragedy that was
Age of Conan is its art book.). I have a love-hate relationship
with the preachy, pretentious, typo-laden yet imaginative world of
Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series. I keep up with George R. R.
Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series.
Movies: I'm a big fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and have
high expectations for Batman vs. Superman. I usually watch
Miyazaki/Studio Ghibli films these days, but I'm a fan of Kurosawa
films. My favorite movies right now are probably Mrs. Doubtfire and
The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou.
Music: My favorite band is Nightwish. Through them I grew attached
to Sonata Arctica, Tarot, Charon, and formed a love affair with
symphonic metal in general; Kamelot, After Forever, Epica.
Variously also Celesty, Korpiklaani, and Mandragora Scream.
TV: Cartoons all the way. 90's Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. The
DCAU. Beetlejuice the cartoon. Various other shows I have at one
time marathon'd but lost track of: Battlestar Galactica, The
Walking Dead, True Blood.
I am a New Whovian, though. I occasionally watch some of the old
serials just to experience them.
I'm watching a lot of intro anime these days.
Food: I've recently given up any meat that is not from the sea,
because I am a huge fan of ingesting mercury. There are no fruits
or vegetables I dislike, but I grew up with home grown squash,
zucchini, tomatoes, broccoli, and peppers. I eat something spicy at
least once a day, and champ peanut butter. I tear up mushrooms.
