I'm trying to read more lately, but I didn't for much of my adult
life so my favorites are pretty much either things I've read lately
or things that I read in high school. It's easy to say that The
Lord of the Rings is on the top of the list. I'm also a fan of A
Song of Ice and Fire and pretty much anything by Neil Gaiman.
My favorite movies include anything by Edgar Wright, Children of
Men, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, the nerd staples of Marvel superhero
movies, Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings (see: books), and many
more that I won't go into.
The two best shows of 2013 were Orphan Black and Brooklyn Nine-Nine
and I'll wholeheartedly recommend those to everyone. They're also
as different as night and day. Other than those, I love Game of
Thrones (again, see: books), Parks and Recreation, How I Met Your
Mother, Comedy Bang Bang, and True Blood. I could stay here for day
if I went into the shows I love that aren't on the air anymore, but
I'll limit myself to saying Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Journeyman,
Happy Endings and Veronica Mars.
I listen to a variety of music, but my current favorites include
Haim, Kacey Musgraves, Of Monsters & Men, The 1975, and
CHVRCHES. My longer standing favorites are Talking Heads, Foo
Fighters, The Clash, and old Offspring.
My favorite foods are simply pizza and burgers, but I will never
believe you if you try to tell me Pizza Hut's burger-stuffed crust
pizza is actually palatable.
