Books: Comics: Fables. I'm trying to collect all back issues of
Robin Vol 4. I read several Bat-titles but am blown away by Hawkeye
and Capt. Marvel. In purely linguistic literature, I like reading
about cognition, embodiment, the brain, writing, and I also enjoy a
good murder mystery, especially if there's a paranormal element
(think Charlaine Harris). Freakin' huge Harry Potter fan. Working
my way through Game of Thrones.
TV: Don't have cable, so I don't watch a lot of current stuff, but
I love Doctor Who, Psych, Buffy, Firefly, Game of Thrones.
Music: I grew up playing classical piano, so I enjoy "classical"
music from a range of historical periods and genres (but Chopin's
Nocturne in Eb Major and Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C# Minor are
probably my fave piano pieces of all time). As a teenager I fell in
love with jazz genres, but big band swing, a la Duke Ellington and
Glen Miller are probably my faves there.
I like a ton of music, but don't always keep track of who or what
I'm listening to. I generally like what The Current plays. The Pine
Hill Haints. If you've heard of them (they're a local Alabama
band), we will have plenty to talk about. If you haven't, look them
up. They're tons of fun.
