Help your potential matches find common interests.
Playlists usually range somewhere between J.S. Bach, Tool,
Nightmares on Wax, In Flames, Zaz, Qotsa, Thelonious Monk, Adele,
Trivium, and Slayer. A little bit of everything though I do get
annoyed by a lot of poser hip hop and monotonous house stuff. Just
rediscovered Billy Talent and tons of old punk rock stuff... aawwww
goooood ol' times...
Tommy Jaud's Hummeldumm (last book I read and recommended) is
pretty funny. Then again there is the Hitchhiker's Guide, lots of
thrillers like Daniel Suarez' Daemon series, recipes, software
manuals, and semi-conductor datasheets...
You will also find a ton of magazines scattered everywhere in my
apartment, courtesy of my employer.
Some Hollywood mainstream stuff is ok to watch but most movies and
TV shows I enjoy are the ones that will be canceled after a few
weeks (or did not even make it to German cinemas). Just to name
few: Snatch; Lock, Stock and two smoking Barrels; There will be
blood; Låt den rätte komma in; Lucky Number Slevin; Office Space;
Religulous; Layer Cake; Idiocracy; Up in the Air; Zack&Miri
make a porno... the list goes on.
As for TV, I proudly pay for ARTE, 3SAT, and all other public TV
channels that have actual content for the mind.
Shows? Breaking Bad, Family Guy, and Dexter made it for quite some
time. Please don't throw me into an advanced Game of Thrones
marathon when I haven't even seen SE1E1!
Also there is no quarrel between Star Wars and Star Trek! Except
Kirk, he should have had a red shirt.
