I don't tend to write message to people first myself on this site in general, mostly because I really suck at starting up conversations.
A LOT of time spent on that... probably too much really.
Being fairly unapproachable in person, or so I've been told months after people meet me.
Unintentionally sneaking the fuck up on people.
So things like Hitchhikers guide, RedDwarf, Doctor Who, Disc World. I've always been a far of a well constructed, unique setting.
I like most music although currently my favourite is Likely the Mystery Skulls purely based on recent playings.
