Music: I'm a huge Frank Zappa fan, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Nina
Simone, Instrumental Jazz, some newer stuff too. I have pretty
eclectic tastes, but I'm not much of a country fan, and I usually
don't like radio-friendly pop music.
Food: I'm not very picky when it comes to food, but I would say my
favourites are Italian, and breakfast foods. I make a damn fine
omelette. Damn fine.
Games: I'm a pretty big fan of games. Play is, in my opinion,
humanity's crowning achievement. Some of my all-time favorites are:
The Last of Us (which is hands-down the best game I've ever
played), Portal & Portal 2, the Bioshock series, Super Mario
RPG, The Elder Scrolls series, The Walking Dead Adventure Game,
Mariokart Double Dash, MechWarrior Online, H1Z1, and way too many
more to list here. I love card and board games as well - Munchkin
is an all-time favorite, as are classics like Scrabble and Trivial
