Books: Sci-Fi and Fantasy mostly. I think Dune is a masterpiece.
Arthur C Clarke, Frank Herbert, Orson Scott Card, and Neil Gaiman
are among my favorite authors. I've been on a cyberpunk kick
Movies: I think Gattaca may be the best movie ever made. I'm
probably wrong, but I forget that fact every time I watch it. Other
favorites include: The Shawshank Redemption, Unbreakable, Pulp
Fiction, There Will be Blood, The Last of the Mohicans, Fight Club,
The Fifth Element. I'm a sucker for comic book movies.
Shows: Right now, Dexter, Game of Thrones and Sons of Anarchy are

Dan Savage's Lovecast, Kevin Pollack's Chat Show, and Dan Carlin's
Hardcore History. The Joe Rogan Experience is a guilty pleasure...
Music: I'm firmly entrenched in a metal phase. Lamb of God,
Mastodon, Opeth, Soilwork and Katatonia are what's in my playlist
right now. I can really get behind some Rush, Radiohead, KMFDM,
Gorillaz, Irfan, M83, Daft Punk, Depeche Mode, Alice in Chains,
Soundgarden, and Massive Attack. (Mezzanine is an amazing record!)
I also enjoy a great deal of the indusrial dance type music I hear
at the Inferno. That is, of course, when I'm not in a strictly
Food: Breakfast! Anything with a decent amount of spice. Asian food
and authentic Mexican food top the list. That and Zantac 75.
