Books: This list should be pretty eclectic because I'll read just
about anything I can get my hands on. Some recent ones would be Apt
Pupil, Catch-22, American prometheus, Anathem, Jpod, any
sci-fi/cyberpunk/fantasy novels to come out in the last
half-century, anything by Agatha Christie. If I had to pick a
single book to have with me for the rest of my life it would have
to be Surely you're joking Mr. Feynmann.
Movies: My favorite movie of all time is definitely C.R.A.Z.Y., a
coming of age movie from Quebec, or Bladerunner. Some other
favorites are Donnie Darko, memento, 28 days later, requiem for a
dream, most of the even Star Trek movies.
Music: Also pretty eclectic, I generally go through phases where I
get obsessed with a band and listen to nothing else and then get
tired of it. If you put a gun to my head I'd say my favorite band
ever was Weezer.
Shows: A game of thrones, The big bang theory, Adventure time...I
don't really watch much TV anymore.
Food: Anything I cooked myself over something from a restaurant. So
far my favorites so far have been pan-seared mahi mahi, my homemade
spaghetti sauce or fruit pies and cheesecakes from scratch. When I
do go out I've always had a soft spot for british style fish and
chips or hip city veg.
