My interests range all the way across the board but have a tendency to clump in the geekier end of the spectrum (i.e. comic books, boardgames, all of the science, and Terry Pratchett). On a more active note (but not too active) I also love skiing, biking, sailing (on other people's boats), dancing (swing and blues mostly), and parenthesis.
Like everyone else in this city, I'm a Software Engineer. Unlike everyone else in this city, I'm from New York, which, in my humble and totally 100% unbiased opinion, makes me a better person. I've been out here for a few months now but I'm still pretty jaded about all of my New York things including pizza, bagels, public transportation, and 24 hour diners. If you were to introduce me to a solid slice of plain pizza, I might fall in love on the spot, no questions asked (of the pizza). I think it's cute how pedestrians out here wait for the light to turn and I haven't figured out what the big deal is with the space needle.
Venture Bros, Frisky Dingo, Archer, Adventure Time, Breaking Bad, Sherlock, Luther, the IT Crowd, and Joss Whedon are some other things that I love. I have a complicated love/hate relationship with Girls. Brazil, Time Bandits, Best In Show, Death at a Funeral, Zoolander, and Tropic Thunder are a few of my favorite movies.
Like any good geek, I've read and watched Game of Thrones (if you haven't read it, you really should!). Star Wars, the Hobbit, Dune, and Rugrats were all profoundly influential during my formative years.
I listen to a lot of underground hiphop these days. Aesop Rock is still probably my favorite, but I'm really impressed with Chance's mixtape so we'll see where that goes. But really I listen to just about everything else as well and I fucking love London Calling (perfect album), David Bowie, the Grateful Dead, Elvis Costello and way too many others http://www.last.fm/user/spooch56
I eat pizza, bagels, dim sum, and most of everything else (but not usually pizza-bagels)
