Books: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Great Gatsby, Philip
Marlowe stories, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. Currently
reading Cloud Atlas, Fahrenheit 451 and a book called No Saints of
Angels somebody on Twitter recommended.
Movies: Being a film student, that's a difficult question. Most
things from John Woo to Singing in the Rain. Ponderous naval gazing
is all very well and good, but watching a car explode as it flies
through the air is always fun. Lord of the Rings (extended cuts),
all of Marvel's cinematic universe (including the Ed Norton
Incredible Hulk), Gladiator, Highlander, Casablanca. I'm a big fan
of early silent and slapstick movies; Buster Keaton, Chaplin,
Laurel & Hardy, Roscoe Arbuckle, etc.
Shows: Lost, Breaking Bad, Battlestar Galactica, House of Cards,
Black Books, Spaced, Game of Thrones. Anything that I can watch in
one huge chunk.
Music: Franz Ferdinand, XTC, Talking Heads, Ladytron, St Vincent,
Maximo Park, Elvis Costello.
Food: Greasy take-away pizza, late night burgers, curry.
Alternatively, a pot of tea and something cake based.
Videogames: I'll tag these on because I like them too. Anything
with a character creator you can spend hours in when you'll hardly
ever be looking at your avatar. And short downloadable games with
cool ideas that don't outstay their welcome.
