Here's a silly personal project I worked on last year:
I was the Asian Capt. Kirk all over California & Iceland.
But in reality I love watching all kinds of film from action flicks to dramas to foreign films to even a bad chick flick. Why? Probably to figure out how I can use some references or techniques for work. But as for my favorites here are some: Star Trek, Christopher Nolan movies, David Fincher movies, Wes Anderson movies, Spike Jonze movies, Eternal Sunshine, Birdman, Mad Max, Lost in Translation, Fargo, Wong Kar Wai films, Primer, Back to the Future, Big Trouble in Little China, Jet Li movies off the top of my head.
Shows: Mr. Robot, Louie, Better Call Saul, Game of Thrones, Nathan For You, Halt and Catch Fire, Last Man on Earth, House of Cards, Walking Dead, Fargo, 12 Monkeys, X-Files, Star Trek TNG.
Books: Currently reading Ready Player One. Also a fascinating and relevant book about this whole online dating thing: Aziz Ansari - Modern Romance.
Music: Currently listening to podcasts mostly - Stuff You Should Know, Nerdist, The Writers Panel.
Food: I could eat Asian anytime - although I'm allergic to peanuts so sometimes that gets me into trouble for Thai and Malaysian. I also have weaknesses for sushi, french fries, breakfast food, and a good steak too. Or anything that gets blogged I'll go check out in a heartbeat.
Six things I hate:
Peanuts (deathly allergic), LA traffic, early mornings, wooden spoons, roller blading, and pretending to laugh at jokes that aren't funny.
