I love Orson Scott Card's
series (specifically the first 3 books). Despite the
author's more... Controversial views and ideals, I found these
books to be a really deep and intense read.
I'm also a big fan of both Douglas Addams
and Terry Pratchett
though I believe those two things are correlated somehow... Their
sense of humour and twisted use of analogies never fails to crack a
smile on my face.
Recently I've been reading the Skulduggery Pleasant
and it's amazingly good! I can't recommend giving them a look
enough. I mean, they're about a skeleton warlock detective who
solves crimes involving lovecraftian horrors. What's not to love?!
(But more specifically, the dialogue is amazingly well
I'm a fan of the Stargate SG1
series. Though I tend to

I think it goes without saying that I like Dr Who
(both old and new), just because
whilst it hasn't always been the best show around, it rarely fails
to be at least entertaining, and in the end it all averages out to
be pretty above average.
As for my more non-geeky sounding tastes, I can't think of a comedy
I'd rather watch than Scrubs
. It's a rare show these days that
remembers to appropriately offset its laughs with drama, and I will
always love this show for it's ability to make me chuckle and bring
a single manly tear to my eye in the same episode.
It's been suggested to me that I should also list some Anime in
here since I watch a fair bit of that too and people seem to
consider it a separate category sooooo...
Tengen Toppa Gurren
is one of those "Well duh" answers to this I've been
told. It's an amazing show that just... Keeps going bigger. If you
haven't seen it then you don't even know what I mean when I say
that. Remedy this situation here:

I watched when I was a kid and spent a very long time wishing I
could watch more of it. So when I grew up and found there were 3
separate series of it that were all dubbed by those lovely voice
actors I grew up with, I fell in love all over again~

My favourite movies of all time is Dr. Strangelove
( Full title

is a genius, and
this movie is absolutely hilarious. It also helps to know a lot
about what went on behind the scenes I guess, but maybe that's just
me being a film nut.

ultimate gangster movie for me. It's a movie I've seen far to many
times, but I still love it to death. So many characters going past
each other, interacting and completely missing each other... And
not to mention some of the absolute best monologues a group of
British roughnecks have ever delivered.
I'm almost tempted to say no more here... It's the perfect
superhero movie in my opinion. I mean, it's the culmination of the
movies that lead up to it that allowed this film to be as good as
it is, but all the same. I just cannot imagine a better way to say
is how you do a smart summer blockbuster
Oh man... I have SUCH a broad pallet when it comes to music. I
don't even know where to start...
No really. I actually can't rank bands. The more I think about
this, the less I'm able to decide. This is one section that really
will just have to be a short list of "the kind of stuff I typically

I LOVE Chicken

My favourite style of food is probably any variation of Mexican Food

There's very few foods I won't eat. I don't like Zucchini
