I love driving all night to take road trips to the middle of nowhere. There isn't much better than a long drive blasting awesome music. Some day I plan to go camping in the desert with a camera and a telescope. I like to hunt Goodwill for awesome shirts and other random weirdness. I have a collection of old suit jackets.
I enjoy playing games. Really anything. Mostly video games, but a good board game or card game is always fun. When I can find the time I like to read, take pictures, cut up magazines for collages, or just zone out to some Netflix. I can spend hours late night at Waffle House or Denny's drinking bad coffee and eating greasy food. I am almost a carnivore.
I have a 7 year old daughter. She is completely awesome, funny, and amazingly smart.

I've always wanted to have a full library room in my house. I get to read a lot at work so the collection is slowly being built. I just need the library. I like to read a lot of random sociology books and science books. Chuck Klosterman is my favorite author. We had a short conversation on Facebook once. I told him I liked his books. He said "Thank you". As far as fiction I mostly read sci-fi stuff with other suspense and old classics mixed in. I recently spent 2 months reading all of the Game of Thrones books. My favorite book is probably Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke.
My two favorite movies ever are probably Eternal Sunshine and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Others include Goodfellas, Lord of the Rings, 2001, Alien, THX 1138, Anchorman, The Life Aquatic. I worked as a projectionist for a long time so I got to see a ton of movies. I like mostly sci-fi, suspense, action type stuff, but I'll watch pretty much anything.
I listen to as much music as possible. Mostly Rock and Post rock stuff like Tool, Nine Inch Nails, Pearl Jam, M83, The Dead Weather, Radiohead, Florence and the Machine, The Mars Volta, Mogwai, and Explosions In the Sky. Classic rock like Led Zeppelin, The Velvet Underground, and The Doors. There are too many others to list. Lots of more electronic stuff has started to get mixed in too. It's amazing how music fits the empty spaces in life.
It's been a minute since I've been able to watch much TV, but I like old X-Files, Star Trek, Simpsons, Game of Thrones, Lost, the Office, and general randomness on Netflix. Cable news is usually annoying but it's fun to watch everyone yell at each other sometimes. I try to watch baseball and football games when I can. Cosmos!
I like Mexican, Italian, Chinese, most anything really. I can be picky sometimes, but can usually find something I like anywhere. Waffle House is my favorite restaurant. It's tasty deliciousness. I do try to eat healthy though. I like to cook. My cheesy rice stuff is awesome.

I'm not a fan of bacon and don't understand the "Let's put bacon on everything" thing. You can keep your bacon flavored toothpaste.
