Books: For fiction, I tend towards sci-fi/fantasy/horror. I'll read
almost anything written by Neil Gaiman, sight unseen, and Steven
King is one of my writerly heroes (I have... about five). I'm fond
of cyberpunk and things with heists, and I do like a good
For non-fiction, I enjoy books on science, particularly about the
mind, and the occasional book on self improvement.
Movies: Um... yes. This is a tricky one, since I consume so many
movies in general. My favorite movie is Ghostbusters (I have a fun
story about that one in relation to film school, ask me about). I'm
impressed with what superhero movies are doing these days, and
Pixar movies make me happy to be a human. My favorite horror movie
is probably the Thing... I could honestly talk about movies
forever. Don't get me started unless you're ready for it.
Shows: Sticking to stuff that's currently on the air: I like the
upswing in genre work, such as Arrow, but I'm also fond of
procedurals, like the better Laws And Orders, Burn Notice, the
Wire. And like everyone and their mother, I love Game of Thrones
and Doctor Who. Literally, my mother loves Doctor Who. I'm hoping
Agents of SHIELD fulfills it's promise.
Music: I'm fond of Alt-Pop, Electronica, some good jazz, some
symphonic gothy metal (see the beginning of this profile), and even
some poppy stuff when I don't think anyone is looking, like Ke$ha
(hush you, hypothetical reader). Hell, I will stand up for some
country music if pressed (I will get you to like Cadillac
Food: All of it. But lately I've rekindled a love for Mexican,
discovered the secrets of Korean BBQ, and am rediscovering my
heritage of Cajun Cuisine. My platonic food ideal, though, is pub
food. Served with a good beer.
Games: Because they matter too! My all time favorite is a
little-known called Earthbound. My favorite Final Fantasy is 6.
Mass Effect and Bioshock: Infinite both blew my mind, and if Indie
is more your style, have you played Bastion yet? Because I want the
narrator from that to narrate my life.
