My tastes

/ posted in: Entertainment

Kati asked what kind of stuff the SO reads. He is a lot like me in that he reads just about anything – fiction, biography, history, business, etc. What has been interesting is that I’ve been giving him things to read and movies to see that I like but that he hasn’t read yet. So far he’s liked them all. Here a list of my recommendations. I’ve started to wonder what this lists says about me.

Books:

The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan – serious
The Eyre Affair by Jasper FForde – smart and literary but funny
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett – religious/antireligious, funny

Movies:

I Am Legend and Shaun of the Dead (for the zombie double header)
Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle – so stupid it is hysterical
Superbad
Hot Fuzz
Accepted – the best higher education plan ever

That might just come as close to summing up my goofy psyche as possible without disclosing my possibly unhealthly love of anything Kevin Smith writes.
