I'm an audiophilic, information-sucking mess of a man in his physical prime, and I'm both mad and ecstatic about all the music I haven't yet heard, and probably will never hear. I recently learned the term "musical ADHD".
I want to read more, but I get distracted a lot. Mostly by insignificant things, but it's usually beneficial in one way or another.
Other than that, I work out and dabble with a couple of language courses. Progress is slow.
I like learning stuff. Not just what you might call "the dry stuff", but pretty much anything. I spend a lot of time on the internet, which leads me to some interesting places, and I'll suck up every bit of whatever's there. However, some of the more intriguing areas to me are psychology, games, technology, copyright, politics, and "general" science.
In the fiction department, I finally finished reading Dracula by Bram Stoker. I feel embarrassed for not having read it sooner, although the nearly 120-year old prose was killing me.
Since I couldn't decide what to read next, I read a book about hypergamy, a book about the upsides and downsides of video games, as well as re-reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy(just started on 'The Two Towers'...again). I'm also reading an introductory book to evolutionary psychology, a source book for eating disorders, and a book about removing restricting eating from your life. My ADHD might extend to books as well.
Since I started working out, I have also spent a lot of time reading about nutrition, anatomy and physiology. When I get into something, I like to go hardcore. :)
My brain mostly fires on all cylinders, so almost no matter what is said during a conversation, I can relate it to some kind of pop culture reference. Or more obscure references.
This is also the reason for George Carlin popping into my head a lot.
Cooking. Well, not exactly gourmet meals, but I know my way around a knife. Saying that last bit out loud makes me sound a bit unhinged.
My specialty is spaghetti bolognese.
Favourite movies: The Man From Earth, 12 Angry Men, The Anchorman, The Princess Bride. There are probably a bunch of other ones as well. I watch a lot of movies, but those are the ones that stand out the most.
Favourite shows: Futurama, Castle, Supernatural, Lie To Me, House and Sherlock. I also rewatch Firefly with regular intervals.
I also got hugely into Hannibal a few years ago, it's probably the best psychological thriller show around. And psychopaths interest me.
Favourite music: Last.fm profile
I listen to pretty much anything(and I do mean anything), but the most popular genres on my playlist are rock, heavy metal and about 16 subgenres of electro.
Soilwork, Tool, Audioslave, Soundgarden, Dizzy Mizz Lizzy, Opeth, Wolfmother and System of a Down are among the big favourites.
I do a lot of exploration when it comes to music, so much so that I get overwhelmed over how much there is to listen to, annoyed that I don't have more time to find and listen to it, and overjoyed that I can literally keep discovering new music for the rest of my life.
My favourite games are Half-Life 2(episodes included), Typershark Deluxe, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Freelancer, League of Legends and Super Meat Boy. I also played World of Warcraft for about seven years.
