I'm one of those easily engrossed readers, so if I'm reading a
novel I really can't get anything else done till I finish it.
Because of that I tend to stick with short stories , or Something
techie, Historical, or Sciency... But there are a couple that I
need to find time for one of these days.
Whatever makes me think, laugh, cheer, or is just amazingly
campy... Tropic Thunder; The Usual Suspects; Gattaca; Zombieland;
I-Robot; The Game; 3:10 to Yuma; The Shawshank Redemption; Cowboys
and Aliens; Hudson Hawk; etc.
I rarely watch anything being broadcast, but when I'm in the mood
for some mindlessness I download/stream: AMC shows about Zombies,
Railroads, and Aliens; shows about Thrones, Blood, and News on HBO;
all manner of wackiness on BBC; This one Horror Story on FX; Some
really nerdy/original stuff from SyFy; and a couple bad sit-coms
like this one about a Korean exchange student named
Nearly all of it, I'm not a music snob at all. I'm an Alt Rock kid
at heart, but I love the abstract structure of jazz; the intricacy
of classical; the energy of rock; the heart of blues; the simple
joys in country; the mindless appeal of 'hits'; the flow of rap;
and the rumble of EDM.
Anything from Dive-Bar Nachos to a four course Moroccan dinner, but
I'm not a fan of certain textures, so I'm probably not going to
shoot a full plate of oysters any time soon.
