My favorite movies would have to be In the Mouth of Madness, Event Horizon, and Dark City. Horror as a genre is somewhat what I grew up with, but I'm not terribly picky when it comes to entertainment. I also have a fondness for low budget pictures. Just seeing what creative people can do on a dime is actually really cool to me. And I like to see more raw acting than what you usually get in big budget flicks.
For shows, it's a matter of mood more than anything. Documentary shows, paranormal shows, police procedural, I'll watch about anything other than reality television and sports. To be completely frank, though, my single favorite show is Doctor Who, followed closely by Farscape. Joss Whedon's stuff I like, but I feel dirty about liking it. Not that it's bad necessarily, but that the plots are generally weak because the characters are so strong.
My favorite music is a lot harder to pinpoint as I generally listen to anything. I'm not big on rap, country, or hip hop, however. I like some of it, but most of it seems really pointedly not for me.
My favorite foods? I don't know about that. I like olives. Strawberries. Crackers. I've curbed my eating for a couple of months, in addition to exercising, to work on getting down to a healthy weight.
I carry my lighter on me at all times, as well as my Leatherman. The lighter is because I'm a smoker. Trying to quit, but I've not been able to kick the habit just yet. The Leatherman because it is really handy to have. You never know when you are going to need a screwdriver, a knife, a bottle opener, a pair of scissors, a wrench, pliers, or a file.
Other than that, mostly it's just the ideas that I need and a goal before me. I run on ideas, writing anything that strikes me. And I have to have a goal at all times. I would go crazy with absolutely nothing to work toward.
And, of course, I think more than I want to about the prospects of dying. I cannot understate the fear I have of death. Ever since I was eleven, my own mortality has kept me up at night until I'm finally able to brush it off enough to get some sleep.
Also, message me if you notice any errors in my profile. I would like to correct them.
