This is clearly going to be the longest section. Where to start,
where to start...
Well, my favorite book genres are fantasy and horror, just as long
as there's a healthy dose of dark/black humor and social satire. If
it's Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, or Kurt Vonnegut, I'm all over
that shit. Some of my favorite novels are: The Catcher in the Rye,
Life of Pi, The Princess Bride, Dune, Catch-22, One Flew Over the
Cuckoo's Nest, and a billion others. Want to borrow a book? I've
got plenty. Currently, I'm finishing up Stephen King's 'Dark Tower'
series, as well as Robert Jordan's 'Wheel of Time' series. I also
devour the 'Harry Potter' series on a bi-yearly basis. It's a bit
of a weird nerd ritual. I could go on and on about books. Barnes
and Noble is my happy place : )
My taste in movies is close to my taste in literature -- fantasy
and horror, but I enjoy other genres outside that too. Some of my
favorite films are Star Wars (IV-VI), Jaws (1 & 2), Ocean's 11,
the Indiana Jones movies, Underworld (except for that last
one...absolutely horrible), Sleepy Hollow, Step Brothers, and
Anchorman. I also like watching documentaries that cover cryptology
and real-world issues.
I don't watch a lot of TV, but there are a few shows that I hold
dear to my heart. Breaking Bad, MST3K, SNL, Key & Peele, Bob's
Burgers, South Park, Archer, Robot Chicken, Family Guy, The Daily
Show, Modern Family, River Monsters, and Antiques Roadshow. Yeah,
that's right -- Antiques Roadshow.
I'm a music snob. I'll put that out there right away. I like: The
Beatles, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Soundgarden, CSN(&Y), Led
Zeppelin, Beck, Rolling Stones, Black Keys, Bill Withers, Paul
Simon, Cream, The Strokes, Alice in Chains, and Iron and
Wine...this is just a small, small sample. I'm a pretty serious
music-head. My tastes range mostly on the older side, but it really
depends on my mood nowadays. Grateful Dead and The Band on one day,
Macklemore and Atmosphere on another, and so on.
Food! I'm a big fan of gourmet restaurants, but I'll still tear me
up some Taco Bell.
