Me Home. Those are just some of the more prominent ones at the
moment, I have a sizable collection that continues to grow.
Shows: Firefly, Big Bang Theory, Dr. Who, Adventure Time,
Avatar:TLA/LoK, Gurren Lagann, various anime. TV isn't really a
thing for me, but I do enjoy some shows when I do get to watch
Music:Number one all time - Machinae Supremacy. My favorite genre
at the moment is folk metal, but I'll listen to pretty much
anything so long as it has some decent musicality.
Food: Is an odd thing for me right now. I've tried a lot of new
things and have recently gotten rid of a pretty much all red meat
in my diet. 90% of my meat is some sort of bird. I promise there
was no fowl play here.
Taking this an a general interest section, I also love nerdy board
games. Settlers of Catan, Axis and Allies, Flux, Cards Against
Humanity, Bananagrams, etc. Basically games that actually take
skill or are great with the right friends. The longer the games
last the better. D&D is a particular favorite despite how
sparingly I play it. Magic the Gathering has resurfaced in my life,
and I love it to death.
