Books! I'd be down to read most books, but I definitely love a good
fantasy series (5 books of 700 pages, at least). I've read some of
the basics, (Tolkein, Jordan, Williams, Martin, etc.), but I end up
re-reading them instead of reading new books. Right now I'm reading
The Dresden Files in preparation for the next book, but I'm always
interested in good books. I also occasionally read one of the
classics, but I don't always finish. Dostoevsky I can read through,
but Joyce and Milton end up put down in favor of a better book.
Additionally, I keep a book on set theory by by bed in case I need
some help falling asleep; one or two pages and I can't keep my eyes
For movies, it really depends on my mood, but I generally favor the
Disney/Dreamworks movies like How to Train Your Dragon or else a
comedy like Hot Fuzz. I'll occasionally watch an action film, but
I'm definitely not a fan of horror.
I don't generally watch a lot of TV, (the whole cord-cutter
generation and all), but I do binge watch what I do enjoy. Doctor
Who, House, Rick and Morty, Simpson, Archer, Sherlock, etc.
Basically, I enjoy something that has an interesting plot, usually
with some laughs to break up the mood.
As for music, I unapologetically know nothing. I've never felt the
need to listen to music while doing anything, and just haven't put
the effort into learning anything. I do enjoy listening to some
Dvorak or Tchaikovsky if the mood strikes, and a bit of Infected
Mushroom really helps if I'm programming, but other than that I'd
rather whistle to myself. Basically, I'm the guy at Chainsaw who
can only sing 90's pop hits.
I generally enjoy any kind of food, but I really enjoy a nice
hearty soup, especially in the winter. Give it a decent amount of
spice, and I just fall for it.
