I'm no good at having specific favorites which I love to death -- I
find that I wind up liking broad classes of thing, so that's what
I'll list here.
Books: Anything by Terry Pratchett
, most things by
(particularly the Vorkosigan
books), most things by Neil Gaiman
. George R. R.
is wonderful, but needs to write faster. Steven Brust
some good stuff. Jim Butcher
is one of the very few
people who can write an ongoing series with a proper plot arc.
does some good things, though I've not actually
checked out his finishing of the Wheel of Time yet. There's a
notable preference for sci-fi/fantasy here; I've never really been
one for "serious" literature.
(I grew up on the original trilogy, and it has a special
place in my heart), The Princess Bride
recently seen and liked: Sucker Punch
, Scott Pilgrim
, Sherlock Holmes
(breaking the "S" theme) Inception
. Pacific Rim
was really fun, if you
go into it with the right expectations.
Met Your Mother
, Dr. Horrible's
Sing Along Blog
(I don't want to make a "web miniseries"
category, okay.) I used to watch a lot of anime
, but I sort of slipped away.
Music: I love over the top power/symphonic metal -- Dragonforce
, Blind Guardian
those sorts of bands. I like music fairly generally, and I can't
list many genres that I don't listen to sometimes. That said, the
majority of my listening time is spent somewhere under the broad
branches of the "rock" genre. I'm also a fan of folk
, particularly the folk-rock
branch; I've been listening to The Decemberists
Food: I like it. Honestly, I'll eat almost anything. I have a
shameful weakness for fast food, though, especially since having a
small child makes restaurants with a play area incredibly
