...tons of stuff, almost anything besides dub step and Top 40 country, pop, rock. As long as it's interesting and unique I tend to like it.
Don't watch much TV but I really like good comedies. Tend to despise cheesy sitcom television. Shows like The Office (UK and US), It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Wilfred, Portlandia, Archer and The Simpsons really make me smile. I also watch A LOT of sports. UFC, baseball, football, hockey and basketball mostly.
I've been trying to lose weight and get trim and have been surprised how good whole foods are. I like pretty much eat everything....except olives. I hate the smell, taste and look of olives. Fuck olives. Some of the garbage foods I really want to eat all of the time are basic 'Merica versions of Italian food things like large pizza's, chicken parm, and seafood alfredo. I went to the Culinary Institute of America. In turn I expanded my tastes and can stomach anything, except those cunty green olives.
