I tend to gravitate toward the Sci-fi and Fantasy genres but have
been trying to expand my library of late. This means I have two and
a half bookshelves of Lord of the Rings, Wheel of Time, Song of Ice
and Fire, Dune, Isaac Asimov, and Robert Heinlein with the other
half of a bookshelf being taken up by a combination of textbooks
from college (why I have these still, I do not know) and a mixture
of classics I read in high school. Salman Rushdie is also a
favorite of mine, both because I enjoy his writing and because I
admire him for his contribution to the cause of reason.
I suppose my taste in movies is similar to my taste in books, but
less dominated by a single genre. I am probably as interested in
watching a good documentary as I am in whatever is nominated for
best picture this year and I am especially fond of the older movies
I watched with my grandfather when I was younger and he was still
alive. Think Casablanca, 12 Angry Men, Tora Tora Tora and you will
have an idea of what I am talking about.
I watch much less TV than I used to. I mostly watch whatever is
available on demand or on Netflix. This includes:
- Mad Men
- House of Cards
- The Newsroom
- A surprising number of shows on the Food Network
My musical tastes are probably the hardest for me to really convey
in a little text box. I enjoy listening to a wide variety of things
and my preferences shift often (Hip Hop to Grime to Trap to Blues
to Classical to Funk to Jazz back to Funk all in one day). Spotify
has been a great way for me to explore things I would otherwise
never encounter but if anyone has any suggestions or is really
passionate about a type of music let me know.
