MOVIES AND TV
Anything Sci-Fi, as long as it has good writing/acting (critical)
and isn't too unbelievable. I'll watch bad sci-fi when none other
is available, but I'll happily critique it in the process. My
favorite movie has to be 2001: A Space Odyssey, hands down.
I just started getting into Dr. Who, although I've always been
critically curious (Or curiously critical). My one wish is for a
season that takes itself a little more seriously. My top pick for
the next Doctor: John Noble.
I have a weakness for Hogan's Heroes. It has gotten me through some
pretty tough times over the last decade.
I'm a Myth-busters fanatic.
I also enjoy science based television, such as Carl Sagan's Cosmos
or generally anything with Neil deGrasse Tyson.
The Skeptics guide to the Universe, The Star Spot, StarTalk Radio,
The Green News Report, The Jimmy Dore Show, Astronomy Cast, The
Morning Stream, The Instance, Convert to Raid, and many more. Okay,
I get it - I listen to a lot of podcasts.
The Young Turks, Veritasium, Head Squeeze, SciShow, Minute Physics,
Mr. Deity, Legendary, NASACast Video, Tekzilla, Chainsawsuit: The
My favorite books at the moment are The Sirens of Titan by Kurt
Vonnegut, the Mars series by Kim Stanley Robinson, or generally
anything by Bernard Cornwell.
I like rock, alternative, and classical music (depending on my
mood). Metallica, Megadeth, and Dragonforce are definitely the
hardest stuff I listen to. Tom Petty, Van Halen, and Pink Floyd get
special honors. If I can't understand the lyrics, I'm probably not
going to enjoy the song. I just recently started getting into Muse
(thank you, Elon)
As far as food goes - I'm pretty open. If you want to get on my
good side then suggest a trip to a good steakhouse. That being
said, I also love a good salad. If steak wasn't so tasty, I could
totally see myself going Vegetarian.
