People also tell me I'm good with graphics and language, and that I'm a good listener.
Coraline, The Fall, Amelie, Fight Club, American Beauty, Fifth Element, the Machinist, stuff by the Coen brothers. Plenty of anime, but I missed out on some recent stuff. Any recommendations?
Anything involving Adam Sandler is definately out. (Later amendment: 'Funny people' was quite bearable.) Which goes to show that going for something out of your comfort zone may be worth it, every once in a while :)
For written material; Anything by Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett, though this seems a prerequisite for being on this site. Sadly, I don't really have much time to spend reading. Most of what I'm reading is on tvtropes.org, nowadays.
My musical tastes are all over the map. Björk, Khachaturian, Tim Minchin, Gorillaz, Muse, Skunk Anansie, White stripes, Alanis Morissette, Queen, Alamaailman Vasarat, Radiohead, Massive Attack, Daft Punk, Aphex Twin, Yoko Kanno... Lately my playlist includes a lot of movie and videogame soundtracks.
The things I'm usually not too impressed by are country, R&B and anything labeled "hardcore".
I also spend a lot of time thinking about the things I create. I don't really think of myself as an 'artist' or anything like that, more like a craftsperson. I can spend a lot of time mentally working out a problem I'm stuck with, a design or a project.
