The Coldfire Trilogy was interesting, along with most of CS
Freidman's work. World War Z was another recent favorite. Big fan
of Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files, too. A recent addition to the
list would be The Name of the Wind. Excellent writing, there. I
just finished Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn trilogy, and it blew me
away. Also recently read Peter Hamilton's "The Commonwealth Saga"
and "The Void Trilogy," both of which were fantastic.
The Fountain, Casshern, The Crow, Hero, Shaolin Soccer and Kung
Fu Hustle were highly enjoyable. Garden State, Zombieland,
Kick-Ass, The Usual Suspects, Snatch, Lock Stock, Equillibrium,
American Beauty, Leon, Underworld and Red vs Blue also come to
mind. Oh, and there are a few TV series that I've fell for. Firefly
is amazing and Arrested Development is seriously one of the
funniest things I've seen in a long time. Oh, and Dexter is pretty
interesting. Gotta love dichotomy.
Mere words can't describe how I feel about music. I love music with
the burning passion of a thousand desert suns.
My top 5 favorites are: The One AM Radio, The Go Find, The
National, Joseph Arthur and VNV Nation.
