In the fall of 2012, I stumbled upon the hobby of critiquing some of our local eateries. If you're lucky enough, you can find me in downtown or midtown at least one day a week trying some sort of new food. I'm not afraid to try anything...a palate is something you develop over a period of time! I am not a serious food blogger at the moment, but I never shy away from giving a friendly recommendation.
Movies: Men in Black, Spider-Man, Pulp Fiction, Blues Brothers (the original 1980 release is the better of the two), X-Men, Mystery Men, A Mighty Wind, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Get Shorty, The Onion Movie, Napoleon Dynamite, Planes Trains and Automobiles. I have to admit I've truly fallen behind the curve technology-wise, & have more VHS tapes than DVDs in consequence. Slowly yet surely, I'll build up a collection. Someday I'll even figure out my Blu-Ray player, too!
Music: R.E.M., Nickelback, Dave Matthews Band, Smash Mouth, Depeche Mode, Smashing Pumpkins, Radiohead, Linkin Park, Eve 6, Rammstein, Stone Temple Pilots. My music collection is even more diverse than my book collection. I'll listen to a little of everything if I'm given enough inspiration.
TV: Grimm, Family Guy, Hawaii 5-0, CSI: Cyber, Zoo, Bob's Burgers, Big Bang Theory, L&O:SVU, Blacklist, Houdini & Doyle, Robot Chicken, Rick & Morty, Scorpion, Criminal Minds, Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, NCIS:LA, Person of Interest
Food: I love eating out when the opportunity presents itself (it's part of my hobby noted above). When all else fails, I can microwave something like nobody's business. If someone really twists my arm to try out a new restaurant, I can't say no. Healthy stuff exists on menus...you just have to find it and choose wisely.

...& just to be slightly materialistic, a good CD to listen to and my Internet connection.
