Books: I can find books I like in almost any genre (except
mysteries), but my favorites are fantasy, science fiction, history,
and memoirs, especially travel memoirs. A few favorites: The
Magicians and The Magician King (Lev Grossman), The Fry Chronicles
(Stephen Fry), Haruki Murakami, The World's Major Languages
(Bernard Comrie--read it cover to cover, and it was awesome), and
Movies: Again, too many. A few favorites: Hot Fuzz, The Nightmare
Before Christmas, Pineapple Express, the Evil Dead trilogy, and
Galaxy Quest. I also watch a lot of Indian movies (mostly Hindi
ones because they're easier to find, but I'll watch ones in other
languages too when available).
TV: I usually like to wait for things to come out on DVD/Netflix,
so I'm not up to date with most shows (except Community, which by
some miracle I actually am current on). Eternal favorites: Futurama
(early), Xena, Arrested Development (1-3). Currently going through
a British television phase (Sherlock, Blackadder, The League of
Gentlemen, A Bit of Fry and Laurie).
Music: Rock, pop, rap, and some techno/electronica/EDM/I have no
idea what actually differentiates any of these things. I also
listen to a lot of international music and have a thing for Indian
film soundtracks (again, mainly Hindi because I watch more Hindi
movies than ones in other languages). I also like Eurovision way
more than I should.
Food: Indian and Chinese. Also, I love soup. And cilantro.
Favorite video games: Baldur's Gate 2, KOTOR 2, Dreamfall: The
Longest Journey, and Sims 3. Currently playing/recently played:
Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect trilogy,
Antichamber, Braid, Sir You Are Being Hunted.
