I have wide ranging taste in all of these, but I can list some
For books, I like a lot of fiction. I enjoy stuff like Stephen
King, Tony Hillerman, and Patricia Cornwell. I just finished the
audio books for the Enders Game series by Orson Scott Card. I don't
do a lot of sci-fi, but it was a very good series. I'm also halfway
through re-reading the Belgariad and the Mallorean by David
Eddings. I'm also an information junkie and read a lot of
non-fiction materials online from fields of study like biology,
geology, technology, astronomy, archaeology, anthropology and the
For movies, I tend to prefer dramas and historical movies with good
story lines. Some of my favorites include Last of the Mohicans and
Braveheart. I loved the Lord of the Rings movies, and generally
enjoy all of the Harry Potter movies. Other favorites include V for
Vendetta, 13th Warrior, Chocolat, O Brother Where Art Thou, Moulin
Rouge, American Beauty. I'm sure there are more but I'll have to
add them as I remember them.
For shows, I like CSI (the original), but watch mainly stuff on
Discovery and National Geographic.
I love music (who doesn't?), and with music I'm all over the map. I
will listen to just about anything from classical or new age to top
40 to alternative to heavy/hard rock. About the only thing I just
can't get into is country. Favorite groups include Rush, Red Hot
Chili Peppers, and sometimes harder stuff like Metallica or Tool.
I've recently started listening to Muse and like them a lot.
I'm a true foodie, and love all kinds of good food. Favorites are
Mexican, curry, Pho, and really just about anything asian. I love
to cook, and I love to eat. I'm pretty open minded when it comes to
food, and am willing to try just about anything.
I also love a lot of our local brews around here. I'm a big fan of
Dry Dock, Great Divide, and Oskar Blues. I love hanging out at the
Falling Rock Taphouse because of their awesome beer selection. I
sometimes do bicycle pub crawls with friends where we go
bar-hopping on our bikes and try out different foods and beers.
