Books: When I do have time to pick up a book, it always seems like
I am always reading the same authors. I have tried to diversify,
but I always manage to go back to my trusties. Michael Crichton,
Thomas Harris, Clive Cussler, Anne Rice, and Stephen King.
Occasionally I regress and read the young-adult authors Suzanne
Collins, J.K. Rowling, and K.A. Applegate.
Movies: The genres I am always navigating to are science fiction,
horror, thriller, comedy, modern musicals and foreign fims. A few
examples include 2001: A Space Odessey, Benny & Joon, Hedwig
and the Angry Inch, Mostly Martha, Silence of the Lambs,
Taxidermia, Repo! The Genetic Opera, Martyrs, and Les Chansons
TV Shows: Although this wasn’t asked for, I am including it. Most
of my free time is probably spent watching television series.
Typically they are either science fiction or British. Most of the
time they are both. It seems like I am always re-watching the
following: The Stargates, Sanctuary, Weeds, Flipping Out,
Torchwood, Doctor Who, Primeval, Coupling, Skins, Being Human, and
Secret Diary of a Call Girl.
Music: My current playlist I listen to nowadays includes The
Smashing Pumpkins, Donora, Emilie Autumn, Lily Allen, Apoptgyma
Berzerk, Kerli, Adele, Cruxshadows, Passion Pit, Rammstein, Amanda
Palmer, Return to Mono, Silversun Pickups, and The Birthday
Massacre. I do listen to a variety of music, but I do refrain from
most country and rap music. I am always wanting to be introduced to
something I have never heard before.
Food: I love ethnic foods. Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, Khmer,
Ethiopian, Japanese… you name it, I love it. If I haven’t had it, I
am always willing to try new things.
