My five favourite movies are, in no particular order, Lost in Translation, High Fidelity, The Princess Bride, Blade Runner and Garden State.
I'm something of a tv addict. Shows I like include The West Wing, The Wire, Battlestar Galactica, Veronica Mars, the various Stargates, Star Trek (TOS, TNG and DS9), Person of Interest, Chuck, Top Gear, How I Met Your Mother, Leverage, Supernatural, Six Feet Under, Doctor Who, Lost, Firefly, Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse, Dr Horrible, The Big Bang Theory, Californication, Farscape, Dexter, Friday Night Lights, House, Mad Men, Sarah Connor Chronicles, The Mentalist, and Wonderfalls. Netflix is a dangerous place.
My music taste is all over the place- everything from Biffy Clyro to Kendrick Lamar. According to LastFM, my five most listened to artists are Springsteen, Biffy, Death Cab for Cutie, Frightened Rabbit and Jonathan Coulton. My favourite album ever is Ghosts and Heights by Crash My Model Car.
Food-wise, it's hard to beat good Indian food. I also enjoy pizza, good burgers, and sushi.
I also like video games a lot, though I don't get to play as many as I'd like these days. My favourite games include Valve's entire back catalogue, Morrowind, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Civilization, Zelda, and many more besides. I used to play World of Warcraft a lot, but I've been clean for a few years now.
I'm also a fan of board games. Right now I can't get enough of Codenames, and Sheriff of Nottingham is also a lot of fun.
I've also been trying to learn Finnish lately, which is hurting my brain.
These days it's just visual shorthand for me being a computing scientist.
