I love a good book, I wish I could read more than I currently have
time for. I'm especially fond of fantasy, sci-fi and fiction. My
favorite authors include Douglas Adams, Aldous Huxley, H. P.
Lovecraft, George R. R. Martin, Joe Abercrombie and Kevin Hearne.
Of all my books, my favorite is probably Last Chance To See. I just
finished reading the side-stories to Joe Abercrombie's The First
Law trilogy, and I already miss them fiercely. I'm now onto The
Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.
Like my taste in books, I love fantasy, sci-fi and fictional
movies. I'm also very fond of the horror genre and animated movies
have a special place in my heart. Typically, I like my movies to
have a significant storyline and good characters - I don't care
much for summer popcorn flicks if they're purely visual affairs.
Three favorites are The Nightmare Before Christmas, Wall-E and
I don't watch all that much television, I instead supplement the
bulk of my viewership with several youtube channels. Of what TV I
do watch, my favorite shows include Game of Thrones, Hannibal, The
Wire and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Other noteworthy shows
include Southland, QI, Sleepy Hollow, Doctor Who, Tiger & Bunny
and Attack on Titan.
For the most part my taste in music is grounded in the rock /
alternative genres. If it isn't country, rap or hip-hop I'll
probably give it a listen! I care very much about a song's melody
and flow, and have an strong affinity for irish songs. My favorite
bands include Flogging Molly, Korpiklaani, The Offspring, Gaelic
Storm, Queens of the Stone Age and Carbon Leaf. I've lately been on
a folk / blues / western kick, and I've been greatly enjoying what
I've stumbled across. Jamie N. Commons is brilliant.
I'm not a fussy eater, but texture matters a lot to me and there
are some ingredients I positively detest (water chestnuts, yech).
I'm very big on pasta and love italian food. I also thoroughly
enjoy japanese, mexican and thai foods, and am willing to try just
about anything different or culturally unique.
Since there isn't a category for it: Video games! I'm currently
addicted to Mechwarrior Online, but my other favorites include Dark
Souls, Skyrim, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, the
Dead Space series, Portal 2 and Amnesia.
