TV shows I'm into: Top Gear (UK), The IT Crowd, Q.I., Big Fat Quiz,
Doctor Who, Sherlock, Torchwood, Black Books (can you tell I enjoy
British programs?), Community, Archer, Leverage, Psych, Warehouse
13, Eureka, Alphas, X-Files, Battlestar Galactica, all of the
Stargate series, Mythbusters, The Daily Show, and my absolute
favorite has to be Metalocalypse.
Movies: The Die Hard series (and virtually everything Bruce Willis
has starred in), District 9, the Alien series, Star Wars series,
anything with Indiana Jones, Snatch, Animal House, Resevoir Dogs,
any of the Marvel superhero movies, Inception, and at this point I
might as well stop and just say anything featuring
action/suspense/sci-fi/comedy. Overall I'm a huge cinephile and
I'll watch just about anything.
Music: Anything on the heavier side of rock. Metal, classic metal,
thrash metal, etc. Slayer, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest,
Dethklok, and Lamb of God are my typical go-to bands.
Classics like Hendrix, Zeppelin, Clapton, Van Halen, and all the
other gods of rock are all favorites as well. All that said, I like
other genres (harder bands from punk or rock) and I do enjoy quite
a bit of electronic and dubstep. Excision, Datsik, Deadmau5, Glitch
Mob frequently find themselves in my usual rotation. Bluesy rock
related stuff is also a definite interest, and I've been hard at
work learning to play the drums to a good number of songs by the
Black Keys. I'll also break from my norm to enjoy some classical
music and soundtrack work. Video game and movie soundtracks are
often incredibly well done (#MartinO'Donnell #HansZimmer).
Food: I'm up for trying anything once, and there's not one
particular style or dish that I stick with.
Books: I don't get around to reading anything except scientific
journals anymore, but anything sci-fi or fantasy I typically enjoy.
Things like World War Z, Watchmen (and other graphic novels), and
novels from the Halo video game series. I do also enjoy novels that
present scientific or academic topics in informal manners. Deborah
Tannen's That's Not what I Meant! and Malcom Gladwell's
Blink are two very interesting, very easy to read novels
on sociological principles that affect our everyday lives. My
favorite story of all time, however, has to be Homer's
Video Games: Nothing too specific, I'll play just about anything.
Halo, Kingdom Hearts, old PS2 games, Minecraft, Slender, TF2,
And because I have no idea how to categorize it, I very much enjoy
the web comics of Andrew Hussie- specifically Homestuck (and the
soundtracks that go with it).
