I've been on a medieval nonfiction kick recently, but other than that, in no particular order: George RR Martin, RA Salvatore, Mark Bowden, Paul S Kemp, Matt Stover, JK Rowling, Jon Meachem, Steve Almond, David Wong, Naomi Novik, Yann Martel
I recently decided that my all-time favorite movie was Heat, but who the hell knows how long that will last. Honorable mentions/possible replacements: Goodfellas, A Few Good Men, The Shawshank Redemption, Star Wars, Mean Girls, Groundhog Day, Galaxy Quest
I watch more TV than is probably healthy and Netflix is enabling my addiction. Arrested Development, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Community, Parks and Rec, Party Down, Justified, The West Wing, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Freaks and Geeks, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Friday Night Lights
Killers, Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, Two Steps from Hell, Ellie Goulding, Fun, ACDC, Duran Duran, Beatles, Foreigner, Johnny Cash, Journey, Muse, Queen, Of Monsters and Men, Caravan Palace
Also, I've got a soft spot for dumb pop music and am an avid chart-watcher. It's a guilty habit.
The single best thing I've ever eaten was a porchetta sandwich, carved straight from the pig by some crusty Italian farmer at a tiny winery just outside of Assisi. Other than that, I'm a sucker for a medium-rare steak, wood-fired pizza, and a well-curated omakase. Preferably all at once.
-Crisp apple strudels
-Schnitzel with noodles
-Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
Unless you're someone I want to impress, in which case I'm lifting weights, downing cold brewskis with the boys, hunting, and talking about cars.
