After reading through multiple thick technical books getting ready
for my network engineering cert, I'd love to get back into reading
things purely for enjoyment again. I did read Hyperbole and a
Half's book recently though, and just started xkcd's What If?
On that subject, I do read a lot of webcomics!
A notable few:
Girls With Slingshots
Lighter than Heir
I like going to the movies on occasion, as well as lounging around
at home or with friends watching various things on Netflix...
And I just re-read through this post and figure I need to actually
list some because my last answer kind of sucked... so here goes
some various favs:
(Also note in trilogies, etc... just referring to the work as a
Star Wars, Star Trek, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Indiana
Jones, The Avengers, Iron Man, Super Troopers, Robin Hood: Men in
Tights, Spaceballs, Limitless, Inception, The Hobbit, Lord of the
Rings, Harry Potter, Superbad, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, (going
to need to revisit this later and add more)
Including anime for now, although it could take up its own
Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, Doctor Who, Dexter, Burn Notice,
Weeds, Breaking Bad, Dexter, The Walking Dead, Ghost in the Shell:
SAC (and 2nd Gig), Fullmetal Alchemist (and Brotherhood), Archer
(only what is on Netflix), The L Word, Lie to Me, The Boondocks,
The Venture Bros., It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Torchwood,
Outlaw Star, Gundam Wing, Dragonball Z, Top Gear, The Green Wing,
Scrubs, Family Guy, The Simpsons, American Dad, Aqua Teen Hunger
Force, SNL, Adventure Time, Mythbusters, (again, tons of things I'm
forgetting to list...)
I love music. Live for it. For the sake of my sanity, only going to
list a small fraction of what I'm into:
Daft Punk. I'm mentioning them first because if they ever go back
on tour, I will pay a pile of money and drive over 1000 miles if I
have to so I can see them live. Also, been listening to Random
Access Memories a good bit since it came out. A lot of people
weren't happy with it, but I love how they managed to put such a
diverse sound into an album like they did. Fantastic.
(And now just listing) Ladytron, Metric, Gorillaz, Die Antwoord,
The Rolling Stones, MGMT, Tegan and Sara, Borgore, Deadmau5, Black
Sabbath, Foo Fighters, Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Benny Benassi, The Black
Keys, Knife Party, T.A.T.U., Steam Powered Giraffe, Beat Machine,
Volkstroker, Flux Pavilion, Bob Marley, Santana, Skrillex, Frank
Ocean, Michael Jackson, David Bowie, Empire of the Sun, Calvin
Harris, Miike Snow, Michael Buble, Diplo, Frank Sinatra, BT, Armin
van Buuren, Linkin Park, Ferry Corsten, Pink Floyd, The Beatles,
1200 Mics, Infected Mushroom, The Grateful Dead, Ke$ha, Pink,
Justin Timberlake, Akon, FloRida, Shpongle, Pendulum, Evol Intent,
System of a Down, Journey, TLC, Cherub
(will stop there for now)
Sushi (Gotta start there), Mediterranean food, Indian, Italian,
Thai, Mexican, Vietnamese, Southern homestyle, Chinese, seafood,
Cajun, BBQ, breakfast foods...
I can prepare most of these varieties of food... my diet is
relatively varied and mostly anything at the moment... although I
try to keep it relatively healthy.
