Here's where it might get interesting for those who actually read these. I'm all over the map, as far as philosophical/political ideals go. I'm very liberal regarding my views on the role of government. I'm very conservative regarding my views on taxes and spending on everything but defense. I'm kinda libertarian when it comes to my belief in the liberty of an individual, but I'm also a collectivist, in that I believe the strength of an individual is important for the community of all of us, and that we should all just freakin share stuff. I have no religion and no belief in a higher power. Although the "religion" bit on the details says atheist, I promise I don't bite if you're a spiritual or religious person, and a broader more accurate term to describe my beliefs would be secular humanist.
Favorite movies? My newest favorite would be Before the Devil Knows You're Dead. My oldest favorite would have to be The Maltese Falcon. Bogart is killer in that (no pun intended). Action? The Bourne films, and apparently there's another unnecessary one coming out that I'll probably see and grudgingly like. Science fiction movie(s)? Star Wars. If you think episodes 1-3 can even touch 4-6, we might have problems. Psychological thriller? The Talented Mr. Ripley. Science fiction horror? Alien. Supernatural horror? It's a toss-up between The Last Exorcism and The Ring, although I haven't thought about it very hard. I just like both of those movies a lot, and so many of the horror films that have come out in my lifetime suck many balls. Favorite actor? Gary Oldman. Favorite actress? Cate Blanchett. Favorite director pair? Coen Brothers. Favorite director? Ridley Scott.
My favorite shows include Dexter, The Office, New Girl, Freaks and Geeks, BSG, Samurai Champloo (without the dubbing), anything with Gordon Ramsay in it, Nurse Jackie, Game of Thrones, and Big Bang Theory. And if you liked Two Broke Girls, please either move on or don't ever let me find out.
I don't have a favorite genre of music. I don't even have favorite bands, except one, and that's TMBG. I enjoy individual works, from crappy pop songs to electronica, to old country to concert classical. I'll try anything once, but I don't force myself to listen to something that doesn't move me. The song does its thing, and if I like it, great. If I don't, oh well.
Food is kind of like music to me. I don't have a favorite restaurant, cuisine, or dish. Recipes vary wildly from restaurant to restaurant or kitchen to kitchen, so I always have an open mind, whether I'm eating pig tongue at a hole in the wall Chinese place, or inhaling steak like it's going out of style at a 5-star steakhouse. Fried chicken pieces/tenders are easily my favorite thing at fast food joints when I get fast food though. It's hard to mess that up, I suppose.
