This is always hard. I always hate how these turn out. Don't be
surprised if this changes kind of a lot.
Music: The Protomen, Coheed and Cambria, The Cruxshadows,
Nightwish, John McCutcheon, Andrew McKnight, Queensryche,
Disturbed, Bon Iver, The Glitch Mob, Black Sabbath and Kris
Kristoferson. Probably at least a few others besides that I'm not
thinking of right now. I'm also quite partial to the music of Pink
and do not really give a damn who knows it.
I listen to a sampling of just about everything under the sun. No
genre is really off limits to me.
Movies: Same caveats all around. Doctor Strangelove, Gandhi, Saving
Face, Gangs of New York, Persepolis, Mr. Holland's Opus, Princess
Mononoke, Casablanca, The Prestige, Moulin Rogue, Dogma, Amadeus,
Training Day, Evita, Charlie Wilson's War, Drumline, Big Trouble In
Little China, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Behind the Mask: The
Rise of Leslie Vernon, Con Air, The Illusionist, Drive, American

Books: I can't even wrap my head around the number I'd have to put
so let me just give you some authors. Micheal Chabon, Malcolm

and let's say Alan Moore. I also have a very hate/love relationship

Television: I don't really watch a whole lot of this anymore, but
here's what I have for you. Community, Daria, Firefly, Star Trek,
Babylon 5, Rome, Legend of Korra, The Venture Brothers, Doctor Who,
Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, Gargoyles, Batman TAS, 30 Rock, No
Reservations, and the occasional splash of something like Adventure
Time or Pawn Stars.
Food: As a rule, I like food. There's not much I won't at least
try. I'm rather partial to Asian cuisine though, whether it be
Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Thai, Malaysian or any of the various
traditions contained within those broad categories.
Though I myself am not a vegetarian, I've been getting into
vegetarian cooking lately. Mostly to do something different and
