I read a bit, watch movies and T.V. shows occasionally, and play a
few games now and then. I don't tend to focus exclusively (or even
heavily) on one, simply because there's way too much good stuff out
Books Prefer humorous / satirical Fantasy - e.g.
Pratchett. Also a fan of "Modern" fantasy, such as the Dresden
Files. Other authors I like are Mike Carey (Felix Castor series),
Robin Hobb, George R. R. Martin, Philip Pullman, Simon R. Green,
I don't dislike Sci-Fi, but for some reason I don't read too much
of it. Maybe it's because we're already living in the future?
Crime / Mystery / Thrillers are generally not my thing. Romance is
really not my thing.
Movies / T.V. Action / Comdey / Dramas. e.g. The
Avengers, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Supernatural, Carnivale,
300, Buffy: the Vampire Slayer, Rome, Hustle, The Nightmare Before
Christmas, Boston Legal, Blade, Monsters Inc., etc.
Not a big fan of horror - find I get too twitchy afterwards. And no
Rom-Coms. Just No.
Music Trance, Rock, Metal - pretty much anything
that's fast. Slow / relaxing music is good occasionally, if I
really need to relax.
Other Stuff Enjoy RPGs (both computer and
table-top), and computer gaming in general.
