Some of my long time favorite books are Lord of the Rings, Harry
Potter, Game of Thrones, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Basically I love sci-fi and fantasy. That should be pretty much a
theme for my entire profile. In that same vein, I've been enjoying
some more urban fantasy lately such as The Dresden Files series and
The Magicians (it's arguably urban, at least.)
I absolutely love any movie that Edgar Wright has done (ie. Shaun
of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World's End, Scott Pilgrim vs The World
but also to surely include anything he does in the future). Some of
my other favorites include Children of Men, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang,
Star Wars, Scream, pretty much any Coen Brothers movie and most
movies by Scorsese or starring Leonardo DiCaprio. When it's both of
those things it's nearly a guarantee I'll love it.
I also watch a ton of awful movies, but I haven't had anyone to
join me in watching those lately and it's kind of just sad to do it
I watch a ton of TV but a lot of that isn't anywhere near something
I'd call a favorite. My actual favorites include such series as
Spaced, Buffy, Angel, Firefly, How I Met Your Mother, The X-Files,
Arrested Development, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Happy Endings,
Journeyman, The Office, Parks and Recreation, Orphan Black, Party
Down, Veronica Mars and Sliders. Again there's kind of a lot of
sci-fi and fantasy in there.
Music is most easily summed up with "yes." I grew up convinced that
I only liked this music, or at least that I didn't like that music,
and the past few years I've been discovering that that's not really
true. There are individual artists that I don't like, sure, but no
real kind of music as far as I've figured out. As a sample, though,
my current Spotify playlist when I want to throw on a variety of
music has songs by Haim, Lorde, Neko Case, Fitz and the Tantrums,
ZZ Ward, Passion Pit, The Mowgli's, Kacey Musgraves, Pistol Annies,
Tegan and Sara, Paramore, Anna Kendrick and The Lumineers. Other
big favorites are Foo Fighters, Taylor Swift, The Who, Queen, The
Protomen and many many more that I can't even begin to name.
I also convinced myself for a long time that there was a lot more
food that I didn't like than is true, but some things have held
out. Straight up eggs (however you cook them, unless they're an
ingredient) and seafood are on the shortlist of things I really
don't want. My big favorite items, though, are burgers and pizza,
which is why no matter how hard I try I'll never be truly thin.
