Books: Currently reading A Song of Ice and Fire, as I'd like to
have them read BEFORE I watch the TV series. I love anything by
Neal Stephenson (Snow Crash, Diamond Age, etc.), Timothy Zahn,
Christie Golden, or Drew Karpyshyn. In general, science fiction,
fantasy, or for mind expansion: theoretical physics.
Movies: The Matrix, Serenity, Avengers (and most other Marvel
movies), Pacific Rim, Scott Pilgrim), Inception, The Incredibles,
How to Train Your Dragon...lots of action/adventure, plus the
occasional animated film.
Shows: Game of Thrones (watching slowly, as I work through the
books at the same time), Firefly, Dead Like Me, Battlestar
Galactica, Supernatural, The Walking Dead, Big Bang Theory
Music: Some rock, some metal, and some classic rock. I'm honestly
pretty easy when it comes to music.
Food: Pizza, pasta, Italian cuisine in general, the classic
Canadian poutine, a good caesar salad. Sandwiches on pretzel
BONUS CATEGORY - Games: Portal has to be listed here. Zelda games
in general. Smash Brothers. Chrono Trigger and many of the other
classic Super Nintendo RPGs.
