I spend a lot of time writing. I write articles, stories, and jokes. That means spending time with me is like having a personal stand up comedian. I love thinking of jokes and getting people to laugh, and am thankfully pretty good at it.
I can take things seriously too of course. Right now I'm working hard to cut out a career in comedy, writing, or some similar creative outlet.
Working nights as a store manager until that writing thing pays off.
When I get a chance to relax, I'm reading non-fiction books, watching random TV shows, playing video games, or catching some Clippers basketball.
Playing Mario Kart.
Remembering song lyrics, TV quotes...Well, I have a very good memory basically.
The most recent book I've read was "NeuroTribes: The Legacy of Autism and the Future of Neurodiversity" by Steve Silberman.
I don't watch a ton of movies anymore (my netflix queue is mostly tv shows and documentaries) but I always love a good thriller or action movie.
My favorite music is whatever you show me. I love hearing new music.
My own favorite bands are pretty eclectic: Rage Against the Machine, Tupac, Pink Floyd, Mega Ran, Koji Kondo, Motown classics, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar, Two Door Cinema Club, Trail of Dead, etc etc
I should also mention video games. I'll just say I like the Nintendo games and the weird games. Killer 7, Shadow of the Colossus, House of the Dead Overkill, Mortal Kombat, but also Animal Crossing, Super Mario, Legend of Zelda, and Pokemon. ...and Earthbound is the greatest.

Whichever book I'm reading.
How funny the joke I just thought of is.
Who will win the next Lucha Underground?
If not that, I'm probably at home singing along to music really loudly while writing and/or doing homework
Or I'm stuck at work again, which is sadly, much more likely.
You want to have a great conversation about books, music, tv shows, video games, or the general political climate?
