My favorite music is mostly post-rock and psychedelic rock. Bands
like Pink Floyd, Yes!, Rush, Hammock, Explosions in the Sky, This
Will Destroy You are my favorite. I also love listening to classic
rock and 70's music, AC/DC, Jimi Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, nothing
better than them old grooves! I'm also a big fan of metal, due to
how musically complex and intense it is.
As for books, I really like fantasy novels, such as: Wheel of Time
series, Mistborn, Elantris, etc...), Slaughterhouse Five, and most
of Stephen King's stuff (especially the Dark Tower series).
Movies, hmm, I would have to say my favorite movie has to be Up and
Wall-E by pixar, both are brilliant, and have something for
everyone. In Up, the pessimist will see an old lonely man who can
never find that relationship again or in Wall-E: humanity lost and
pathetic, but the optimist will see a life well-lived and an
awesome robotic adventure! Also, bonus points to Up for having
Kevin and Dog!
Second and third places go to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless
Mind, and The Green Mile.
