Not a big book reader, mostly just sports books if I do. Stuff like
Moneyball and the Bill James New Historical Baseball Abstract. In
the past I read quite a few Steven King books, and they were
excellent. Oh, I also read a lot of the Star Wars expanded universe
books when I was younger. A lot of fun those were.
For movies, I'll list all the ones that come to mind. Star Wars.
Die Hard. The Last Boyscout. Shawshank Redemption. 50/50. 500 Days
of Summer. The King's Speech. The Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy.
Inception. War Games. Fail Safe. The Day After(the 1983 movie about
nuclear war). Dr. Strangelove. Twister. 12 Angry Men. Casablanca.
The Natural. The Cooler.
Oh, and all campy made-for-Syfy movies. Especially the disaster
ones. They're good because they're so bad. How can you not like a
movie called "Ragin' Cajun Redneck Gators"??? "Annihilation: Earth"
is likely my favorite. If you have to check every Saturday what
their new movie of the week will be, just call me now and lets
start dating, haha.
Also, Rifftrax can make any movie awesome.
TV shows, I'm a big fan of Doctor Who, Futurama, South Park, Daily
Show, Colbert Report, House, The Newsroom, Through the Wormhole
with Morgan Freeman, The Ricky Gervais Show, old Simpsons, old
Family Guy, Jericho, Merlin, Cheers, M*A*S*H, 3rd Rock From the
Sun, Bones, and probably more that aren't coming to mind.
Oh, and I like most anything on the History Channel that is
ACTUALLY ABOUT HISTORY. /shakes fist at Pawn Stars and the like. I
even enjoy the crazy stuff like "The Nostradamus Effect" and
"Ancient Aliens". You gotta take them with a grain of salt, but
they're somewhat interesting and pretty entertaining to
Music wise... Outside of being a huge Parrothead(Jimmy Buffett
fan!) I tend to like a lot of classic rock and country type
Food wise, I'll try most of anything. Fruit is probably my favorite
type of food. I'm also a huge spicy food addict, I have an ever
growing collection of insane hot sauces and tend to bring some with
me to restaurants because no one has stuff spicy enough for me...
Oh, and video game wise, I mostly just do PC games. I'm still a
recovering WoW addict, and I spend the gaming time I do have on Civ
V, Borderlands 2, Arkham City, and now Divinity 2. I tend to focus
mostly on RPGs and sports games, along with strategy games. I'm not
that great at FPS but they're fun to play with others.
