I'm a big fan of things in the sci-fi, fantasy, and superhero
genres. I especially like these franchises: Doctor Who (before you
ask, the answer is Capaldi), Star Trek (also, before you ask, it's
either Picard or DS9), Star Wars, and the MCU (if Cap isn't your
favorite Avenger, you are literally
I also appreciate goofy comedies (Parks & Rec and Brooklyn-99
being my current favorites) and political dramas (The West Wing
being the best one, of course).
My perfect movie is Independence Day. If the mention of that movie
brings this scene
to mind, message me NOW.
I generally prefer TV to movies, especially now-a-days where TV
shows are more comfortable with long-form story-telling.
Webcomics- xkcd, smbc, Questionable Content
I try to read two books a month (one audio, one regular). My
favorite genres are Sci-fi, Fantasy, 20th Century History
(although, I try to branch out to other eras), and Science. I'm
currently reading Proof, about the history and production of booze.
It's super interesting! If you like anything dealing with zombies
at all, do yourself a favor and go listen to the World War Z audio
I listen to 40+ of these things, so it's hard to choose favorites.
How about some superlatives?
Most fun: Thrilling Adventure Hour
Most pun: The Gist
Sexiest: Savage Lovecast
Most Judicious: You'd think it'd be Amicus, but you'd be WRONG...
it's Slate's Political Gabfest (you're welcome Emily Bazelon)
Most revolutionary: Revolutions... it's all about various
revolutions in history... it's a joke, you see... ok, I'm done
Video Games -
I'm a sucker for BioWare RPGs. I also like Civ games. I'm currently
suffering from a Kerbal Space Program relapse... It's as much fun
as it sounds (or more fun if you wrongly don't think it sounds like
that much fun).
I mainly listen to music to remove myself from the noise of the
outside world (usually so I can focus on work). I primarily listen
to music without lyrics of the following types: TV/movie/video game
music, fast-paced celtic-y music (ala Riverdance), or
electronic-y/pop-y versions of classical songs. When I'm feeling
like words, I'll throw in some Earth, Wind, and Fire or some
Fun fact: I've avoided the South Park Game of Thrones episode
because I don't want to think about weiners whenever I listen to
the theme song.
You know all that food that's terrible for you? The kind with all
the fat and grease and sugar? That's the food I prefer. Burgers are
(obviously) the best food in existence, followed closely by
chocolate chip cookies. Honorable mention for Stephen Colbert's
Americone Dream. My alcoholic beverage of choice is cider.
