I'm originally from a small town in west Michigan and decided to spread my wings about 9 years ago. I picked Seattle mostly for the climate. I don't mind the rain and the summer is amazingly nice, even though it's short. Unfortunately, I was naive to politics and didn't know this was such a liberal city and what that meant. Having my eyes opened is a good thing. I read more and am better able to articulate conservative/libertarian arguements, but this town is swimming in kool-aid. If all goes well, I'll be gone in June.
Movies: Anything from slapstick comedy to mind bending sci-fi. From over-the-top action to old classics. Lots of good stories to be told.
Shows: I don't turn on the TV much. But if I do, it's usually just a quick fix of comedy. Family guy, south park, 2.5 men. I caught a bit of Big Bang Theory and How I Met Your Mother lately, funny shows. Netflix has been great for more story based shows. Lost and Breaking Bad are great.
Music: I have come to a point to where I hate music. It started with an old girlfriend who was overly obsessed with music and got worse through the years with 'artists' who substitute 'shock value' for their lack of singing and lyrical talent. Then there are the Idol shows that add 'drama' as a means to add viewers. Sorry, but music these days has an ability to make me physically ill.
Food, on the other hand, is something I'll try anything of. There is nothing I won't eat, just a few things I prefer not to have.
