I read a lot, though truth be told its more non-fiction and
articles than fiction these days but among my favorites are Terry
Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Leonard Cohen, Stephen Fry, Steig Larson,
George Fraser. Jasper Fforde, Charlotte and Emily Bronte, Mary
Shelly, Billy Bryson, David Eddings, Christopher Brookmyre, Lillian
Braun...that's scratching the surface anyway.
Films is an odd one I love most of what I've seen but tend to see
very little. I did get HEAVILY into Star Wars as kid and I've
developed a thing for the Batman films as I got slightly older.
Other than that just anything of real quality.
Music is a LONG one. My roots lie orignially in metal though most
metal is terrible. I grew more into hardcore, punk and its various
offshots from heavy music which is where my real loves lie. But I'm
also really into jazz, classic rock and pop, electronic music,
progressive music and more or less everything in between.
To give a vague idea of music my favorite artists include: Tom
Waits, Sikth, The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Beautiful South,
Thrice, Miles Davis, Converge, The Beatles, Jeff Buckley, Pink
Floyd, Deftones, Devin Townsend, Aphex Twin, *shels, Shania Twain,
Prince, John Coltrane, TesseracT, Bernhoft, Botch, Shadowboxer,
Imogen Heap, Ian Dury & The Blockheads, Justin Timberlake and
Leonard Cohen and a whole world of other artists.
