UNPOPULAR OPINION TIME: I don't like black metal or dubstep. Sorry,
rest of the world. Also, sorry I'm not sorry.
Food -- I like pretty much all kinds of food, with the exception of
seafood (gasp, a Denverite that didn't list sushi here!). I didn't
eat it much when I was growing up, and never really developed a
taste for it. Favorites include Mexican, Italian, Indian,
Mediterranean/Middle Eastern, and bacon cheeseburgers with green
chile cheese fries.
