Far, far, far too many to list, but I'll give it a try.
Books: The Girl Next Door and Red, by Jack Ketchum. Off season is
also pretty good, but a little too fantastical. If you don't like
gore, don't bother with these. My favorite book of all time ever
remains IT, by Stephen King. Thus far I've read three copies to
tatters. I also love Neil Gaiman, Tolkein, Jeff Lindsay (writer of
Dexter, I just pretend the third book doesn't exist), Matheson,
Clive Barker, and Peter Straub. I also like to pretend that I'm too
good for James Patterson, but when I'm desperate...
Movies: As stated above, I am a horror movie fan. My favorites
include Jaws, Halloween, The Changeling, and Black Christmas. Older
horror is the best. I also cry at the Shawshank Redemption, laugh
out loud at Serenity, and delude myself into thinking I can do
awesome kung fu after watching any number of gorgeous HK action
I also enjoy doing my very own MST3K's to any number of 80's horror
movies, often featuring slime in a prominent role.
Music: My god, so many. Let's go though my ipod a little, shall we?
Let's see - Amuro Namie, The Herd, Chocolate Watchband, Janis
Joplin, Epik High, the soundtrack to the Social Network, the
soundtrack to The Matrix, a little Kanye, a little Dead Prez, a
little Less than Jake, a little MF Doom. That's just a fraction. I
like a lot of stuff.
TV: My only cannot miss shows are Top Gear, Top Chef, Game of
Thrones, and RuPaul's Drag Race. I'm also Joss Whedon's bitch, and
I'm kind of okay with that. I'm ALSO watching through The Wire for
the first time and it is amazing.
