Books: I'll read just about anything that comes with a strong

Martin, Jim Butcher and Terry Goodkind, recently started a
collection of Philip K. Dick's short stories. Fantasy, Sci-Fi,

Movies: The original Star Wars trilogy, The Adjustment Bureau,
Charlie Bartlett, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, The Cabin in the
Woods, Ghostbusters, the Marvel Universe of movies, High Fidelity,
Serenity, The Sword in the Stone... That's a lot of favorites. Sort

Music: All-time favorites are Coheed & Cambria, Motion City
Soundtrack and Muse. Recent favorites include HAIM, Passion Pit and
Chvrches. Honorable mentions for Deadmau5, Paramore, and Saves the
Day. As "classics" go, Led Zeppelin, Queen, The Who and Rush. Also
Katy Perry. Yes, Katy Perry. I avoid using the phrase, "I don't
really listen to the radio" because I'm not a hipster, I just have
Shows: Community, Firefly (cancelled or not), Archer, Modern
Family, New Girl, Breaking Bad, How I Met Your Mother (except for
the miserable finale), Shameless. I generally avoid reality
television, except for the occasional Hell's Kitchen.
Food: French toast is the best toast. Mexican food also works. Big

toast. Burgers, wings, most things that are bad for you, but are
