Books... there's too much! I tend to browse the stacks in the
library and the bookstore, picking up random books to read their
summaries and discover new authors to read. I like a lot of
fantasy, science fiction, and even a little horror. Some of the
bigger names: Garth Nix, Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, Isaac Asimov,
Chuck Palaniuk, Frank Herbert, Neal Stephenson, Jim Butcher. If
you're really interested, look me up on goodreads.
Movies, off the top of my head: Ferris Beuller's Day Off, Serenity,
Requiem for a Dream, American History X, Safety Not Guaranteed,
Metropolis, Pan's Labyrinth (or just about anything directed by
Guillermo del Toro), Mirror Mask
My musical tastes are eclectic at best: jazz, funk, industrial,
swing, metal, symphonic, some folk, big band, electronica, 80's
& 90's pop, and alt. rock are what comes immediately to mind,
but that's far from all. Lately, I'm fixated on RHCP, Audioslave,
and Frank Turner.
Food is delicious. I love cajun cooking, but really any ethnic
variety will do. Greek, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Mexican, Spanish,
French, English, German, Indian, Egyptian, Jewish... bring it on.
One of the very few exceptions is chocolate: I go for dark
chocolate, or not at all.
