Books: Fantasy and sci-fi, especially anthologies. A Song of Ice
and Fire > Lord of the Rings, so there. Random science-y books
as well. For the most part, I enjoyed the books I was forced to
read in high school.
-List: ASOIAF, LotR, The Gods Themselves, Foundation, The Dresden
Files, Hitchhiker's Guide, Dune, 1984, Animal Farm, 'Cry, the
Beloved Country,' To Say Nothing of the Dog, Uncle Tungsten,
'Surely you're joking, Mr. Feynman,' Flatland, Candide, Machine of
Death, Ender's Game, World War Z, Brave New Worlds (That's not a
typo), and many more.
Movies: I don't watch many movies anymore, but I'm not a
consistently intelligent viewer. I'll watch, and like, just about
all the blatant-cgi-fx-action-packed-no-plot movies that Hollywood
mass-produces, in addition to brilliantly written
-List: Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang; Contact; Real Genius; How to Train
Your Dragon; The Avengers; The Prestige; more as I remember
Shows: No TV service, but Netflix galore. I just started watching
Arrested Development, The Walking Dead, and American Horror Story.
The first two episodes of Black Mirror left me dead inside, but in
a potentially good way. I think.
Music: You like a bit of everything? Try me. Interests range from
progrock to Nordic power metal to showtunes to neo-classical choral
music. You know what they say, the best way to piss off a music
hipster is to genuinely enjoy music. I've also recently been
increasingly drawn to EDM and glitch hop, like Glitch Mob, Zedd,
SomethingALaMode, Flux Pavilion, etc.
-List: Closure in Moscow, Fair to Midland, Nightwish, Epica,
Kamelot, Halestorm, Phildel, The Birthday Massacre, The Glitch Mob,
Something A La Mode, Mochipet, Ratatat, Paramore, Mae, Tally Hall,
Relient K, Sleepthief, Florence + the Machine, Metric, Project 86,
The Romanovs, Kimbra, Eric Whitacre, and more.
Food: I can't stand rotisserie chicken, I will never have enough
sushi, and I usually prefer getting drunk on hard cider, wine, or
vodka. That's about it.
