Otherwise, I generally go about life having as much fun as possible, whether that's just hanging out with people or hiking through a forest, or having some sort of death-defying adventure somewhere. That last one actually happens a bit more than I'm comfortable with admitting, truth told.
So many to list, but here are the ones that are my go-to choices: Don Quixote, The Three Musketeers, Les Miserables, The Warlord Chronicles, Sharpe's, The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Egils saga, Njáls saga, the Robert E. Howard Conan stories, H.P. Lovecraft's stuff, The Malazan Book of the Fallen, and The Black Company stories.
Star Wars, Star Trek II, III, IV, and VI, The Man with No Name trilogy, Braveheart, Paths of Glory, Spartacus, Platoon, Django Unchained, and Pacific Rim (which is the most metal movie I have seen in a long time)
Adventure Time, Hannibal, Glee (yes, Glee), Atlantis, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Dr. Who, Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter, Star Wars: Rebels, and Attack on Titan are the ones that I'm following right now.
Much like with books, these are just my go-to ones: Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Blind Guardian, Leonard Cohen, Sarah Slean, Symphony of Science, Nobuo Uematsu, The Tragically Hip, and Johnny Cash
Any and all kinds, but I have a soft spot for simple, well done Italian food.

Alternately, airships. And 8th-12th century weapons, which is what my MA thesis was on, and what I mostly present on at conferences.
Yes, I'm that kind of nerd. I apologize in advance.
If you don't mind that I'm probably not going to be in the area for too long, that'd be good too. If you're looking for someone to chat with on the Internets or via postal mail, that works for me! I realize that being a roguishly charming, globe-trotting academic/educator makes things difficult for long-term relationships of a romantical variety, so I'm not necessarily expecting things to go that way.
Also, if you want to have hot, hot make-outs with a bearded guy, I'm your man.
