I absolutely love multiple-part questions. End sarcasm.
, Charles Stross
, Harlan Ellison
, Terry Pratchett
and the list goes on and on. That said, I don't read many books
anymore, and for the most part I've only been keeping up with the
new Stephenson novel every few years. And re-reading older
Stephenson books. And listening to Stephenson on audiobook.
Movies: B films, horror movies, mystery, comedy, drama, action,
noir, romance, you name it. But give me a good documentary any
Shows: I haven't had cable TV service since high school, partly
because there's not enough stuff worth watching and partly because
I detest being advertised to. I do not think this makes me better
If I really want to watch a show, I'll buy the DVD, catch it on
Netflix, or download it. The Newsroom
is my favorite current
TV show. I like Star
a lot (see the first sentence of this profile).
Music: I love Frank Zappa
, Stevie Ray Vaughan
, They Might Be
, Philip Glass
, and pretty much all nerdcore

Some of the lesser-known bands I really like are The
Darkest of the Hillside Thickets
, The Cryptkeeper Five
There are a very small handful of songs that I can't listen to when
other people are around, for "something-in-my-eye" reasons. Some of
these songs are very likely to send me into a month-long fit of
depression. I am highly unlikely to tell you what they are.
(e) I like to cook sometimes, but I don't have any favorite foods

toward Asian cuisine. Japanese, Thai, Indian, that sort of thing.
But I'm just as content to go to a diner and grab a hamburger and
