Hrm, who've I been reading lately? Chuck Palahniuk, Neil Gaiman,
Warren Ellis, Robert Heinlein, and Issac Asimov come to mind. I've
been slowly reading through the Hugo award winners, and have
started in on the Pulitzer Fiction and Non-Fiction categories. I
also like reading good children's fiction, stuff like A Wrinkle in
Time, NIHM, Harry Potter, etc. Anything well-written and/or
thought-provoking and/or fun will get me.
I always like good movies, and I sometimes like bad movies. I
seldom watch a movie more than once, though, because most are never
as fun the second time around. As with books, it's all about the
story, and I'm a big fan of good stories.
Music is much the same way: I like good music. Thusfar I've
found music with merit in pretty much every broad category,
although some seem to have a higher density of good music than
others. Presently I'm listening to a lot of Information Society,
Yes, Johnny Cash, Depeche Mode, Machinae Supremacy, and
McCartney (Beatles through modern), but this list is by no
means exhaustive. I have several people that apparently exist only
to feed me the cutting edge of music and/or things I have not yet
heard from ages past.
I'm a fan of Mexican, Thai, Japanese, Italian, Irish, and Indian
foods, and am generally up for trying anything new. Spicy is a
plus, seafood is generally a minus. Ramen and Pho are also amazing,
and the seafood rule is relaxed for these tasty, tasty soups.
(If you think ramen is something only for college students, we
should go on a date so I can prove otherwise...)
I'm always looking for new things to try. If you've got a good
suggestion for me to try as far as any of these categories go,
please, let me know.
