Honestly though I'm kind of in a transitional period. Trying to figure stuff out and decide what I really want to do with my thirties. I like my job but I can't see myself doing this forever, so it's either back to school for another degree or chucking it all and running off to volunteer against ISIS.
I don't only read Sci-Fi though. I recently read William Cohan's "House of Cards" and it was a spectacular read. It was recommended by 'Philalawyer,' who wrote an amazing book called "Happy Hour is for Amateurs." Also recent reads are "Confessions of a Pickup-Artist Chaser" by Clarisse Thorn, "Hilarity Ensues" by Tucker Max and "Modern Manners: An Etiquette Book for Rude People" by P.J. O'Rourke.
In movies it's a little harder to pick a favorite. "Star Wars" is great, but everyone likes "Star Wars." I really need to watch more Kurosawa, but I absolutely loved "Seven Samurai" and "Yojimbo." Actually I have a not so secret fondness for Japanese cinema. It's not a favorite, since I prefer sci-fi like "Blade Runner" or "2001" on an intellectual level, but I check my netflix suggestions for the latest in foreign cinema at least once a week.
For tv shows, I have to admit to a secret fascination for True Blood and a public appreciation for Game of Thrones. HBO really is the king of quality tv these days.
My taste in music kinda varies. I used to be a huge metal fan, listening to Rammstein, Dragonforce, Rhapsody of Fire, e.t.c. Then I started listening to more hip-hop and some dance/techno. K-pop has me fascinated these days. Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bZkp7q19f0 Mostly though I just like whatever is on and feels good to listen to.
I like all food. Except that weird green stuff farmers grow that they try to tell you is good for you. Never did grow up enough to "appreciate" salads.

Hey, no reason a nerd can't have a subscription to Esquire right?
