Books? If we start out classy, I've always had a soft spot for
Jules Verne and Tolkien. But from there it degenerates into my love
for trashy scifi books. And dammit, I'm not going to be ashamed of
that! Occasionally, I break out one of my philosophy or sociology
books and do some heavy duty internal debates.
Shows? If we discount anime like Cowboy Bebop and Evangelion...
there's still quite a few. I'm obsessed with Firefly and Doctor
Who. House md was also a favorite. Then there's honorable mentions
like Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Torchwood, Being Human, Castle, The
Following, Battlestar Galactica, and Fringe. Oh, and there's The
Walking Dead, but I'm still trying to decide how I feel about it.
I'm currently working my way through Breaking Bad.
Movies? If I break it down by genre... Action? Hard Boiled. Kungfu?
Ip Man or Iron Monkey (coincidence Donnie Yen is in both? Probably
not). Scifi? Serenity. Zombie flick? Zombieland. Comedy? Hot Fuzz.
Intellectual? A Beautiful Mind. Warmnfuzzy? Pursuit of Happiness.
Horror? Cabin in the Woods. Well, that's not really horror. I guess
I don't like horror all that much.
Music? Lots of stuff. Off the top my head, there's Vivaldi,
Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Muse, Maroon 5, Linkin Park, Green Day,
Juno Reactor, Thievery Corporation, Ministry of Sound,
Audiomachine, The Glitch Mob, Hans Zimmer, Lupe Fiasco, Submotion
Orchestra.... the list goes on.
I don't think about food so much. As long as it's dead, doesn't
have tentacles or mushrooms, I'll give it a shot.
Also, I'm an avid PC gamer. Beware.
