Seeing as how I want to be a writer, I spend a lot of time reading.
A short list would include C.S. Lewis, Dalton Trumbo, Henry Miller,
John Steinbeck, Chris Kohler, Bill Bryson, and most of the writers
over at cracked.com.
I don't watch a ton of movies (my netflix queue is mostly tv shows
and documentaries) but I always love a good thriller or cheesy
action movie. I'll pretty much watch anything though.
Music is whatever you show me. I'll listen. If I had to choose
someone, right now it would be Tom Waits, J. Arthur Keenes Band, or
anything Blues. Right now Muddy Waters and Robert Johnson have been
great background music for writing as well.
Oh food? I grew up poor, so I'm not picky, everything tastes great
to me. I am partial to Mexican food though.
I should also mention video games again. I'll just say I like the
Nintendo games and the weird games. Killer 7, Shadow of the
Colossus, House of the Dead Overkill, Mortal Kombat, but also
Animal Crossing, Super Mario, Legend of Zelda, and Pokemon. Also,
Earthbound is the greatest.
