I've got way too many favorite books and movies, but if I had to
narrow it down, I might say Dune and American Gods for books, and
Death at a Funeral (Brit version), Star Wars, Stranger Than
Fiction, and The Darjeeling Limited for movies. The Studio Ghibli
movies are pretty amazing, too.
As far as shows go, Doctor Who, Archer, Arrested Development, Lost,
Fringe, and The Venture Brothers. Oh, and Game of Thrones.
My favorite music is pretty haphazard; mostly I find stuff through
soundtracks. I like a lot of pretty movie scores, like Michael
Giacchino and Alexandre Desplat. I like David Bowie and the Beatles
quite a bit, and I also enjoy Feist, Zooey Deschanel, and a
smattering of more recent big artists like Adele.
I really like any kind of food that involves meat, pasta, or
cheese-- basically, comfort food. Butter is amazing, too. Yummmm. I
don't think I could handle being vegetarian.
