I have read too many books to consider just one my favorite.
However I like science fiction (I like most sub-genres especially
space opera and hard sci-fi), comedy, and the occasional military
fiction book. A random selection of my favorite authors are:
William C. Deitz, Jim Butcher, Vernor Vinge, Charles De Lint, Lee
Child, Iain M. Banks, Douglas Adams, Arthur C. Clarke, and John
Ringo. These are just several among a long list of people whom I
don't have the space to list and/or I've forgotten.
I like most action and adventure, sci-fi, and comedy movies, as
well as the occasional documentary or drama. Some of my favorite
movies are, A Scanner Darkly, Children of Men, anything with Jason
Statham, Jim Carrey, anything by Guy Richie, Mel Brooks, and so
many more. Basically any 80's comedy movie (or sci-fi for that
matter, I'm a sucker for cheesy movies). I also enjoy documentaries
such as "The Yes Men Save the World", "Capitalism: A Love Story",
and "Exit Through The Gift Shop".
My favorite genre of music is punk rock, But Metal and Rock are
great too. I've been getting into the band Ok Go lately (Check out
their music videos). My favorite band is currently Bad Religion but
I also like Wax Fang, Stiff Little Fingers, Steppenwolf, Pink
Floyd, a bunch of Blues musicians, Dropkick Murphy's, anything with
a catchy tune to it.
I really like spicy or hot food, especially buffalo wings. Don't
knock hot sauce until you've tried it... on everything.
