That's a boatload of things to put in this little box! Ok, to get
it out of the way, I DO like books, but I can't just devour them
like some folks. So, more often, I find that a book provides less
entertainment per minute than some other things. Thus, I don't read
a whole lot, but I HAVE read a few things all along. I'm currently
thumbing through a few books on zymurgy, polyamory, and business
Edit: As I noticed, people appear to give judgments of you based on
the books you say you like. For those people, I rather enjoyed The
Time Machine, Candide, most anything by George Orwell. I like
Twain, and I think Homer was actually a god. I think Beowulf is one
of the finest pieces ever written.
Movies... Well, years ago, I'd have told you 300 and V for
Vendetta, but I think I've moved a little beyond that era of life.
I still like those films though, but I don't think they're "me"
anymore. Now? Not sure. I enjoy films as I see them, but a
"favorite" isn't really something I do with films. I like the types
that make you think hard - the kind that causes you to have a
discussion that lasts from the moment you finish it until an hour
or two has passed. Good films, those! Oh, I've also been told that
I look just like Thorin Oakenshield, the leader dwarf in the new
In the way of music, I'm a rocker. I have a fondness for most
anything with an electric guitar in it. I like metal (80s and
modern - wildly different, eh?), hard rock, prog rock, classic
rock, rock & roll, etcetera. I also like Irish-American
drinking songs quite a bit. I think one of the best places in life
is listening to live blues on a cool night with a fantastic beer in
one hand. And, I can also find something I like about most
everything else out there.
I like most all foods. Good food though. I don't need vast
quantities of crap. I'll take a smaller bit of something absolutely
breathtaking over that any day. Also, my motto for it has generally
been, "If it tastes good and it won't kill me, I'll try it once."
