tl;dr - nerdy stuff. and metal/hardcore.
House of Leaves, Only Revolutions, The Fifty Year Sword, A Song of
Ice and Fire (series), anything by Chuck Palahniuk, other sci-fi
and fantasy, and H. P. Lovecraft.
Stanley Kubrick, Will Ferrell, Stephen Spielberg, James Cameron,
and too many more to name. My favorite of all time is The Shining,
followed closely by Casablanca. Modern movies kinda suck for the
most part - but I am in no way a movie hipster.
Community, Parks and Recreation, 30 Rock, The Office, Firefly,
Buffy, Archer, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Mad Men, Game of
Thrones, Scrubs, Doctor Who, and many more. Again, too many to
name. I also like some anime, but I'm rather picky about it.
Metal, Metalcore, Hardcore, and 90s Alt Rock. I've also recently
started to like dubstep a lot. My favorite bands are Every Time I
Die, The Chariot, The Bled, Coheed and Cambria, Pink Floyd, Tool,
Rage Against the Machine, and No Doubt.
Food: Anything and everything - I might not like it, but I'll sure
as hell give it a try. Favorites include Bacon, Steak, Sandwiches,
Mexican, Sushi, and Pasta. I also love beer, if you count that as
food. I've recently started to embrace my Irish heritage and
realize how much I love potato based foods. 3 of my top 5 favorite
food items include French Fries, Potato Chips, and Mashed Potatoes.
