I'm really bad at these things because I know what I like if you
ask me if I like it but if you ask me to just list things that I
like I can't remember them.
Books: I knocked out the first Song of Ice and Fire book a couple
episodes into the first season of Game of Thrones. I'm currently
reading those. I like the writing of Neil Gaiman. I keep going back
and reading a story or two of Fragile Things and then putting it
down to find and enjoy later. I also like humorous writing like
Hitchhiker's Guide and Terry Pratchett. Good Omen's is probably one
of the best books ever. There are very few books I don't enjoy, but
there are few that I find myself with the attention span and time
I have so many books on my ipad that sometimes I just scroll up and
down with my eyes closed and just poke one to read.
Movies: I don't really do your stupid funny movies. I don't really
like straight-out comedy movies. I don't find Will Ferrell or Jim
Carrey funny. The sort of comedy these guys do just don't amuse me.
I won't complain if someone wants to watch them, but I won't choose
to watch them myself.
I'm also not so much for gorey horror movies either.
I like dramas when I have the time to sit and watch them. I like
thriller sorts of movies, for instance, Shutter Island - I love the
way movies like that work. I love things that make me question
reality and my own sanity.
I love pretty much anything with Michael Cera in it. The type of
character he gets typecast as is the sort of person I feel I am
And Jason Segel. I love absolutely anything he does.
I absolutely love Garden State.
My favorite date movie ever is Nick and Norah's Infinite
I'm into comic book movies and the like as well.
I watch a lot more tv than movies as tv shows are smaller servings
of larger plots. I'll sit down and watch a marathon of tv shows on
my day off. I recently caught up on Fringe this way. Other shows I
How I Met Your Mother. I'll rewatch this series from beginning to
current with a new friend if they're up for it.
Big Bang Theory
Game of Thrones
The Walking Dead
South Park (I find I appreciate the topical references a lot more
now than when I was younger and paid no attention to world
Recently watched all of 30 Rock. It is rather excellent.
Suits! (I feel like I'm the only person who watches this show. I
devour it as soon as I can in fears that it'll be canceled)
Music: My music tastes are pretty eclectic. The only thing I don't
really listen to is Country. When I turn on the radio I listen to
an alternative or some top 40 station depending on my mood at the
time. When I'm wanting to keep my energy up and get things done I
usually throw on a pandora station based on Daft Punk or I dance
around the apartment to an LMFAO pandora station.
My favorite bands are Weezer, Incubus and a little Chicago band
called Lucky Boys Confusion.
I've been listening to ALOT of Mumford and Sons lately. I love the
way they sound and have been searching for other bands that sound
like them. Let me know if you have any suggestions. I'm looking for
a balanced sound with similar vocal tones. There's a St. Louis band
with some friends of mine in it called Great Isaac that sounds a
lot like them imo. If you like mumford you should check them
Lately in my car I've been listening to a lot of NPR. Also, I've
been known to listen to a lot of podcasts. Usually I'm listening to
the TWiT podcasts or the Frogpants podcasts. Lots of geeky things
like that. I listen to This American Life fairly regularly and
Freakonomics Radio almost religiously. Oh... and the Savage
Lovecast is my guilty pleasure podcast.
Food: I have a lot of annoying food allergies. I'm allergic to tree
nuts, which has me afraid of most baked goods. I'm allergic to
sesame, which pretty much rules out all asian food. I'm allergic to
Mango... which has become pretty popular in foods lately. Oh, and
of course shellfish. If I can convince myself that I'm safe eating
something, I'll probably like it and I'll probably love to eat more
of it. It's the first part that's usually the issue.
