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
taking up most of my TV time. I am also a huge MMA fan. I both miss
cable, and am glad to be rid of it at the same time. I'm also a big
fan of podcasts lately. I like mostly comedy based ones, but I
enjoy some of the talk show podcasts as well. I'm really digging
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, 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!) That is, of
course, when I'm not in a strictly metal mood...
Food: Breakfast! Anything with a decent amount of spice. Asian food
and authentic Mexican food top the list. That and Zantac 75.
