Books: Possibly my favorite book is The Oath, by Frank Peretti.
Followed closely by the Harry Potter series, Lord of the rings
series, Left Behind series, Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing
in Las Vegas, basically, anything with a good plotline.
Movies: I'm a huge movie nerd... I love horror, comedy, action,
thriller, and some sci fi. Some favorites include Snatch, Boondock
Saints, Braveheart, the Hangover, Zombieland, Empire Records, &
the Saw series, and pretty much any Superhero movie ever... I have
seriously watched The Avengers on repeat for 8 hours a day for a
month straight, and I still laugh when Hulk slams Loki
Shows: How I Met Your Mother (minus that travesty of a finale),
Arrow, Smallville, CSI: Las Vegas, Leverage, Buffy the Vampire
Slayer, The Walking Dead, and Franklin & Bash.
Music: the Smashing Pumpkins are my favorite band, but my tastes
fluctuate quite a bit depending on my mood. I like techno, trance,
industrial, alternative, classic rock, hard rock, metal, top 40,
and anything Celtic. Some of my favorite artists (in no particular
order) are Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Rob Zombie, Ozzy,
Mushroomhead, Metallica, Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails,
Static-X (RIP Wayne Static!), Prodigy, Celldweller (his older
stuff, not that dubsteppy crap), Pink Floyd, Eluveitie, Lacuna
Coil, Paul Oakenfold, Lady Gaga, Flogging Molly, the list could go
on and on. I told you I was all over the board.
Food: I love sushi! I also have a major Chipotle addiction. As far
as home cooked meals, I make a mean Shepherd's pie. I also love
steak. There's actually very little that I don't like.
