All things considered, I'm four slices of smarm, a hefty chunk of geek-cheese, (<= yeah, I'm chill with the Oxford comma) and a piquant drizzle of effervescence, all jammed into a panini press and sizzled to perfection...well, adequacy.
Growing up, I spent far too much of my time restricted by timidity, but I've recently devoted nearly every waking moment to embracing all the little enjoyable moments I stumble across and jumping in...but not without a bit of preliminary calculation. Granted, I won't rush into serious decisions - when it comes to big-picture matters, I'm analytic to a fault - but I'm generally a pro-fun person.
As far as entertainment's concerned, I basically frolic across the spectrum, though I'm immensely drawn to all things in the musical field. I play a few instruments (violin and, less proficiently, guitar and bass, though I promise I'm not one of those random string-wankery look-how-hawt-I-am musicians) though I've never really found a proper outlet/venue for that sort of thing in a while - if you're musically inclined, I'm entirely in favor of a duet. On the composition side, I'll admit I've only put together a few pieces (most of which has been in the comedy-rock territory...I live to entertain!) but I've certainly engaged in more than my fair share of remix/mashup silliness. I may be a mediocre vocalist, but I'm a heck of a dramatic reader - my EPIC VOICE is unrivaled!
Given my profile name, I'm clearly a bit of a sci-fi fan, and that goes for almost every medium in that respect. I'll curl up with some Verne, Asimov, or Heinlein, but I'll throw some newer, as well as pulpier, stuff into the mix; I'm currently poking at Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Throw some Firefly, Farscape, or...well, of course, Star Trek (except The Animated Series and most of Enterprise - hisssssssss) and I'll stay readily entertained, and will very likely quote along. The same generally goes for film - sure, I love the classics (The Day the Earth Stood Still, Forbidden Planet, then on to the later stuff like 2001: A Space Odyssey and the first two Alien movies) but I'll gladly fall into the fresher films like Looper and Dredd (the 2012 version, not 1995's Judge Dredd...though that one's fantabulous after a few reasonably intense drinks) and even some...well, trash (I'm looking at YOU, Plan 9 from Outer Space!) Of course this also goes for games, both video and tabletop; sometimes you'll catch me in a fresh playthrough of the Mass Effect trilogy or another run of FTL, and other days I'll be in the middle of a Black Crusade campaign. In short, I liek spaceships, pewpew!
Ye gods, am I rambling. I'll try and save a bit for the other topics! Next section, ENGAGE!
Okay, books first:
-The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (well, the first three - it gets messy from there)
-Foundation (primarily the first novel)
-Dune (again, the first - noticing a bit of a pattern here? >.> )
-The Lord of the Rings trilogy (The Hobbit, slightly less so)
-An assortment of short stories from pulp sci-fi/fantasy magazines
-The latest Consumer Reports Buying Guide (I like knowing what other people think about shiny things - not that I don't already have my own rather fierce opinions concerning the best French door refrigerator on the market)
*murmurs* okay and the Harry Potter books and I kinda don't mind The Hunger Games SHUT UP
Star Trek II, IV (my childhood favorite because TIME-TRAVELING WHALES), VI, VIII, and the J.J. Abrams reboot - y'know, the *good* ones.
O Brother, Where Art Thou? (both for the film itself and the soundtrack)
Thank You for Smoking
Basically anything touched by Joss Whedon or Edgar Wright
The Empire Strikes Back
Assorted Pixar stuff (primarily The Incredibles and Up...inner child, tra-la-la)
Labyrinth (both Pan's and Bowie's)
Star Trek: The Next Generation (fairly certain everyone saw this one coming; TOS, DS9, and Voyager are fine, too)
Archer (PEWPEW SAUCY SPIES)
Avatar: The Last Airbender
A couple shows on HGTV, particularly House Hunters International or anything focusing on particularly intriguing architecture
I seriously don't want to be one of those "I LIEK ALL THE THINGS" people, but I legitimately enjoy a fair slice of nearly every genre. I'll jump from Puccini to Pinback, B.B. King to King Crimson, Stravinski (both The Rite of Spring and this rather fantastic chiptune cover I found) to the Strokes. The only thing I unilaterally can't stand? Serialism. THEY RUINED MATH AND MUSIC
Omnomnom, most dishes from the (uh, Americanized) Thai, Japanese, and Italian families keep me satisfied - few foods bring me to gustatory ecstasy more overwhelmingly than a fantastically prepared pad thai. I have a bit of a sweet tooth; I've cut back on my chocolate intake, but I still splurge here and there. None of that Hershey's nonsense, by the way - if it isn't as dark as Darth Vader's helmet in a perfectly opaque chamber floating through deep space, it's not strong enough for me.
2. Limeade. (Whee, shallow thing to make up for a pretentious first entry!)
3. I almost feel like a bad person for going with this one, but I can hardly stand existence without the internet. Don't get me wrong, not for the social media element of it - unlimited potential, access to every bit of information known by our species, so much to absorb and so precious little time to do it!
4. Maximum frolicking!
5. The occasional moment of silence. I don't meditate in the strictest sense, but every once in a while it's imperative that I find a quiet space, calm down, and let my head cool off for a while. I've overclocked my brain-processor and my cooling system is inadequate, so an occasional Hibernate mode is required for the sake of keeping everything stable and gloriously happy.
6. Companionship, conversation, getting to know someone as deeply as possible short of a Vulcan mind meld.
Name's Richard, by the way. ^_^
