In regards to books:
My reading interests vary. Here are some favorites, most being from
the science fiction or fantasy genres: Dan Simmon's Hyperion
Cantos, Ursula Le Guin's Left Hand of Darkness and
Dispossessed, Peter Hamilton's Pandora's Star and
Judas Unchained, Timothy Zahn's Conqueror's Trilogy,
J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, Charles DeLint's The
Little Country, Juliet Marillier's Daughter of the
Forest, Annie on my Mind by Nancy Green, The Book
Thief by Markus Zusak, The Elegant Universe by Brian
Greene, and Women who Run with Wolves by Dr. Estes.
At the moment, I am seeking science fiction books by female
authors. Any recommendations are welcome.
In regards to movies and TV shows:
Movies that provoke much thought are high on the list of favorites.
I'm open to trying any movie, though I tend to avoid extremely
violent war movies and violent/gory horror.
I don't really watch much TV, and if I do, it's usually with a
friend. Most of the TV shows I watch tended to be science fiction
based, fantasy shows, and/or thought-provoking drama.
In regards to Music:
My tastes in music is all over the place, not really fixed in any
particular genres, so here's a fun list of my current favorites:
Amy MacDonald, Album Leaf, Celtic Women, Muse, Nightwish, Ayaka
Hirahara, Rurutia, Apocalyptica, Emilie Autumn, Lily Allen, Mehdi
(New Age), Rokysopp, Kitaro, Sigur Ros, Novembre's song "Zenith,"
and Bear McCreary's Battlestar Galactica soundtracks.
In regards to Food:
I love asian, especially Thai, Japanese, and Korean. Authentic
Mexican is great too - especially mole sauce on corn enchiladas.
