Books: I like reading authors that are as clever with their word
craft as they are with their stories (Douglas Adams, Neil Gaiman,
Charles Dickens, Steve Martin). As well as fantasy, science fiction
and Harry Potter books.
Movies: I like films that explore the surreal or bizarre
(Mulholland Drive, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Donnie
Darko, Being John Malkovich, A Clockwork Orange). But I also like
fantasy movies, sci-fi, trashy apocalyptic action films, superhero
flicks, Disney movies and Harry Potter films.
Television: Arrested Development, Six Feet Under, Parks & Rec,
30 Rock, SNL, HIMYM, Skins, Misfits, Game of Thrones, The Office,
Little Britain, Red Dwarf, Catherine Tate and also lots of
oldies... Friends, Seinfeld, The Golden Girls to name a few. That
said, I probably only watch an hour or two of TV a week on
Music: I listen to everything - classical, electro pop, top 40, hip
hop, rock, progressive metal, and everything in between. If it has
an interesting melody, beat, time signature or chord progression,
then I will probably like it :-) For the record, my favourite band
Shows: The Mikado, Avenue Q, The Book of Mormon, The Producers, Les
Mis, The Lion King.
Video games: Zelda. Fable. Journey.
Board games: Some of the nerdy ones :-)
Food: Apart from creepy-crawly underwater creatures, I love pretty
much all food, and to me good food is one of life's greatest joys.
I prefer savoury to sweet, steak to fish, and cheese & crackers
to, well, everything.
