Aside from being slightly picky towards food, my tastes in all of
these are so vast its not funny, I know everyone says something
like that but with me its ridiculous.
I read every book imaginable, simply because I enjoy anything with
a story, non-fiction and fiction alike in every genre. I do enjoy
my non-fictional fantasy and sci-fi, but I also really enjoy the
way writers of every type can really bring alive characters and
plots that make them seem like someone you get to know over the
book or the series. Hell, its not even surprising for me to pick up
a trashy romance novel now and then or an old-timey western. Its
not out of the ordinary for people to have to introduce me to new
reading material, as I will read a book to death, and have so many
to go through at home that by the time I get around to a book I
read I start with a clean slate.
Movies, don't get me started. If its film, I will watch it, even if
its in a no longer existent language with shotty subtitles and
terrible characters. Why you ask? No idea. It drives my cineofile
friends batshit-hatter-mad. The crap I watch even surprises me
sometimes. I watch a lot of good things as well I feel should be
mentioned, as states, I watch it all. I do have a terrible
addiction to Netflix and there have been many a weekend were I have
simply ordered delivery, grabbed a case of beer and just sat down
and watched season after season straight. This is quite true for
Doctor Who, which I watched constantly and that's all I did till I
ran out of episodes. Actually I did the same for Burn Notice, got
to love spies.
Let's see, music now right? Oh dear god, you poor reader. When I
say I am into everything, I mean it. Whether it's a relaxing day
and I throw on some Glenn Miller and chill out with a glass of
bourbon, maybe its been a bad Wednesday and I throw on Rammestine,
Powerman 5000, and some Cannibal Corpse, or maybe it's a Friday
night and Im at a local dive and pop a few country songs on the
jukebox. Though Fridays I do like to through on some 90s stuff or
some Irish music just to confuse the other patrons. Lately I have
been trying to build a satire station for Pandora, but that's not
going well. I have been trying to build a station based on Code
Monkey, but I have yet to hear it in three days of solid listening.
There is more than one occasion where I am sitting around the house
and throw on some electronica, or techno as a call it. I hate
sub-generes of music, simply because I am tired of people coming up
with new classifications instead of just listening to new
With food I am a basics kinda guy, I like my General Tsos, when I
get 'Chinese' food, any place that serves steak in its varieties is
a-okay in my book. Who doesn't like Mexican? I mean tacos, end
story. Pizza is always a keeper, especially Mall Pizza which is
pretty much the only reason i ever go to those places anymore.
Aside from that I keep trying new things, and although I try to
cook, I'm no chef.
