I love it when people ask me what kind of music I'm into it. I
usually have no idea how to answer that question, so I have some
stock made-up genres; "yeah, I'm totally into acoustic disco and
death jazz, you?" The more serious answer is that I enjoy a wide
range of music, from electronic beats through prog rock, classical
and even the occasional heavy metal.
Film is something I really enjoy and I have a large collection of
favourites. Blade Runner, Delicatessen, Dark City, Charlie and the
Chocolate Factory, 28 Days Later, Donnie Darko, Star Wars (original
trilogy), Citizen Kane, Alien + Aliens, 12 Monkeys, 2001,
Deliverance, District 9, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,
Fight Club, Idiocracy, Indiana Jones (original trilogy), Moon, The
Name of the Rose, The Ninth Gate, Perfume, Primer, The Quiet Earth,
Solaris, really too many to mention but most anything by the Coen
brothers, Quentin Tarentino, Stanley Kubrick and David Lynch, and
most anything with a non-comic sci-fi bent.
Broadcast television sucks, but I do enjoy some binge TV shows,
like Breaking Bad, The Wire, Game of Thrones and Walking Dead.
iView is also great for catching a documentary or the latest Dr
When it comes to books it's usually hard sci-fi and high concept
fiction mixed with the occasional classic. William Gibson, Arthur C
Clarke, John Scalzi, Vernor Vinge, Phillip K. Dick, Roger Williams
are the kind of authors I generally like. Recently read Ready
Player One which I loved, and right now Monkey by Wu Ch'eng-en.
