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 It... 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 and Grimm, but I'm also fond
of procedurals, like the better Laws And Orders (I even have a
longstanding fondness for Dragnet). And like everyone and their
mother, I love Game of Thrones and Doctor Who. Literally, my mother
loves Doctor Who.
Music: I'm fond of Alt-Pop, Electronica (Daft Punk album, please
come out faster), some good jazz, 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 Sky)
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.
