I'm going to have to come back to this as I think of stuff, but
Books: Prometheus Rising, Quantum Psychology, The Discoverers, 21st
Century Kinkycrafts, anything by Philip K. Dick, anything by Kurt
Vonnegut, the Titan Trilogy by John Varley, any of the Discworld
novels by Terry Pratchett, the Hitchhiker's Guide series, The
Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, Flatland, Anne Rice's Sleeping
Beauty trilogy, and Escape From Eden. World War Z... I am a book
hoarder, I have way way too many and can't seem to part with
Movies: Anything by Terry Gilliam but especially Time Bandits,
Brazil, Twelve Monkeys, and Life of Brian. All of the Monty Python
movies. All of the Alien movies. Amelie. Run, Lola, Run. Rocky
Horror. Inception. Memento. The Matrix. Dark City. Iron Man and The
Avengers. Koyannisqatsi. Baraka. Any festival of animation. Flash
Gordon. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Yellow Submarine.
The Fifth Element. This Is Spinal Tap. The Corpse Bride. The Dark
Crystal. City of Lost Children. A Clockwork Orange. THX1138. The
original Star Wars trilogy (the version where Han shoots first.)
I've recently discovered the Fanedit community and downloaded
several amazing fanedits of different Star Wars episodes as well as
an incredible 3-hour fanedit of the five original Planet of the
TV Shows: Game of Thrones, Archer, True Detective, RuPaul's Drag
Race, Orange is the New Black, Girl Code/Guy Code, Battlestar
Galactica (the new one.) Monty Python's Flying Circus. Firefly. The
Dollhouse. Jeeves and Wooster. Blackadder. Dr. Who. Torchwood. The
Mighty Boosh. Spaced. Red Dwarf. Peep Show.
Music: Oh my. I'm also a CD hoarder. A few of the bands I love are
AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, Dead Can Dance, Klaatu, Queen, Fatboy Slim,
The Gorillaz, George Thoroughgood, Daft Punk, Bjork, Creedence
Clearwater Revival, Jack White, Soundgarden, and the greatest band
of all time: The Beatles.
Food: I am currently on a low carb diet which has been very
successful for me but has restricted me from some of my favorite
foods. I love to cook and I love to eat -- one of my merchant
marine friends has a saying "never trust a skinny cook" and I
understand where that comes from. My favorite foods are probably
sushi and pizza. I'm famous for a few signature dishes which I've
perfected by making hundreds of times... one is a Tom Kha Gai soup
(Thai lemongrass & coconut milk based) and another is a Chinese
stir fried noodle dish. I also love a good steak and I know how to
cook a mean ribeye. I can make Chicago style Italian beef
sandwiches from scratch. I developed the recipe when I spent 10
years living in Austin, Texas and developed a craving for that
particular comfort food. I also love wine and cheese. And oysters.
Pretty much any shellfish, actually.
