I just finished Kraken by China Mieville and I really liked it,
though I understand now why critics think he's a smug s.o.b. which
I would probably get along with. I really am fond of H.P.
Lovecraft, and some of the later horror writers that he inspired,
P.K. Dick is great, I love Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep
(Also, Bladerunner). Neil Gaiman
has amazing comic books
(Sandman) though I enjoyed American Gods and Neverwhere, too. I
finally have all of the Scott Pilgrim graphic novels, kind of happy
about that. Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash and Diamond Age are
probably my all time favorites.
Movies? Well I like those, too. Especially if something blows up.
In truth, I do really like Bladerunner
and Alien, two of Ridely
Scott's (even though Prometheus sucked), not going to lie to you,
really a fan of Labyrinth. Things I saw recently that I liked John
Dies at the End, The Prestige, Hellboy, Shaun of the Dead, Running
Man and Total Recall. I have been watching a lot of Star Trek: The
Next Generation lately. If you hate Firefly, we probably won't get
Music, I can't even... I could go on for a while. Radiohead
is by far my favourite
band, hands down. I have a new love of Marina and the Diamonds, The
Decemberists, alt-J, The Naked and Famous, Sleigh Bells, Pretty
Lights, and few others, and old love for Yeasayer, Daft Punk,
Halou, Zero 7, Portishead, Morcheeba, Massive Attack, The Faint, TV
on the Radio, and a list as long as my arm.
I freaking love felafel. I will eat it until I'm sick. I've been
trying (real hard) to stick to the South Beach diet lately, getting
my veggies in. I exist on a diet primarily of stir fried vegetables
and meat. I hardly ever eat any sugar, but I will always go to
Glace if I'm near the plaza, because ICE CREAM.
I also really like gaming
. Board games, table top games,
role-playing games, video games, you know, real nerd things (I have
all of Arkham Horror, if you know what that is, we should probably
get to know each other. Just sayin'). Me and my friends have been
playing a lot of Magic
, Commander/edh style.
