Books: H.G. Wells, H.P. Lovecraft, Tolkien, Ender's Game, The Wheel
of Time series, Song of Ice and Fire, silly movie novelizations,
and MEDIEVAL LITERATURE. One of my prized possessions is a
fancy-pants copy of The Death of King Arthur. This is the ONE thing
I would save from a fire....
A separate section I think belongs to comics. I was practically
raised on them as much as I was more classical literature. I like
analyzing comics for the valid literature that they are (They're
not just for kids! >:( ) I read more DC stuff than Marvel, but
honestly, I hate the competition between them. One's not better
than the other; they're just grossly different. Anywho, my favorite
comics characters of ALL time are BOOSTER GOLD and SHAZAM. Other
than them I'm head over heels for everything Fantastic Four,
Superman, and Justice League. Also, Judge Dredd.
Movies: MAN OF STEEL (Hours-long lecture on its merits available at
request), the Alien series, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, the
Hobbit (I was moved to tears when I first watched it, I'm not
ashamed) DREDD (one of the best comic-to-film adaptations ever)
Serenity, Nolan + Burton's Batman films, the Fantastic Four films
(love/hate relationship there) 1978 Dawn of the Dead (still scares
me), Ghostbusters, Skyfall, most animated DC/Marvel movies, many
more I can't think of...
Guilty Pleasure: Bill and Ted...
TV: ALMOST HUMAN, ARROW The Walking Dead, Firefly, Parks and Rec,
Justice League (This show is gold!!) Doctor Who, Pillars of the
Earth, Vikings, Battlestar Galactica, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Next
Generation, Dark Matters, every single 90's Marvel cartoon
(Fantastic Four, Spider-man, Iron Man, etc.), Voyager, Deep Space
9, Heroes (It only had ONE season >:( , Full Metal Alchemist:
Brotherhood (honestly an amazing experience even if you've never
seen any anime whatsoever. Just watch it), Smallville!
The Last of Us!!!!!!! Injustice (love/hate), Left 4 Dead 2 is
always good, FTL (Faster Than Light! Ask me about this! :D) The
Walking Dead, various Steam games, the Arkham games (top-notch!)
and everything I played in my childhood. Also, anything with legos
