Flaming lips: These songs bring comfort when your scared (and going to lose a kidney). Later I found out that the album was written for a friend dying from cancer.
Catcher in the Rye, Flowers for Algernon, David Copperfield, The Tao of Pooh, Oscar Wilde, Ender's Game, Anxious to Please, The Princess Bride (amazing), Black Boy (Richard Wright is one of my favorites), Childhood's End (I hated this book so long that I realized it had a profound effect), Ethan Frome, A tale of a death foretold and 100 years of solitude (Gabriel Garcia Marquez). Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. I read a lot on applicable philosophy, Epictetus, Plato, Betrand Russell, the Epicureans, Montaigne etc. I also read a lot on religions and meditation. I've just added hard boiled mysteries to the list; authors such as Raymond Chandler and James M. Cain.
I want someone who loves to read and will read out loud to me.
I love comics. As I aged the subjects have changed but my enjoyment of comics have stayed the same. It began with a dream of being a superhero (age 7) and now I read mostly autobiographies. Writers: Frank Miller, Mark Millar, Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman. Artists: John Romita Jr., Frank Quitely, Sam Keith. And many many more.
Memento, Fight Club, The Matrix. I also like I <3 Huckabees, which is one of those "love it or hate it" movies, and i loved it.
Newsies, I'll admit. Watching movies is what I do with my father.
I stay away from watching t.v. I'd rather work out. But if I give in I found I love silly comedy such as Modern Family and South Park.
I play lots of European board games, like Settlers of Catan, Seven Wonders, Ra, etc I'm addicted (I love competition, but I'm not a poor sport) Cosmic Encounter!
(P.S. I have pretty much stopped playing games.)
I'm into retro games: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Super Ghouls and Ghosts, DDR! (man I was good at that). I don't own any of the new systems... don't have the time.
