Being a music/book/beer snob
I divide my reading time between established "classics" and escapist literature, mostly fantasy and science fiction. Some of my favorite books are "Paradise Lost," the works of Shakespeare, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland/ Through the Looking Glass," The Phantom Tollbooth," The Foreigner series by C.J. Cherryh, The First Law Trilogy by Joe Abercrombie, and "The Great and Secret Show" by Clive Barker.
I also read a lot of comic books, including most of the Batman and X-men related titles. Some of my favorite series include "Transmetropolitan, "Y the Last Man," and "The Unwritten."
As for movies, I like quirky comedies or off the wall action or fantasy films. Some of my favorites are "Kill Bill," "Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World," "Brazil," "Labyrinth," and the Lord of the Rings.
I like comedy shows, mostly. "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," "Community," "The IT Crowd," "The Simpsons," etc.
I'm not a picky eater, I'll try just about anything. I especially love Mexican and Japanese cuisine.
