Who knew there would be so much to tell?
I’m a fan of heavier styles of music: Five Finger Death Punch, Stone Sour, Murderdolls, Trivium, Tool, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer. That’s not to say I don’t like other types – my iPod has Michael Buble, Coldplay, Pete Murray amongst others. Something I have only just stumbled upon is a Japanese band called Babymetal – three teenage girls singing pop style vocals it heavy metal music. Check out the film clip for ‘Gimme Chocolate’ on Youtube, it’s one of the best clips I have seen!
G.R.R. Martin, Joe Abercrombie, Patrick Rothfuss – these three are my writing gods. I love everything I have read by these guys. I’ve read all of Martin and Rothfuss, but I still have a few Abercrombie books to go.
I don’t watch ‘Game of Thrones’ – there, I said it. I think I am the only one that doesn’t. I love the Big Bang Theory. Law and Order (the original or SVU), Ash v The Evil Dead, Daredevil, Jessica Jones. Netflix has been great for me.
I was a huge World of Warcraft nut – I played every day, had many max level characters. But, several months ago, I just stopped. I lost interest. I found better things to do. And my love of writing returned. I am currently loving Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Pain. It is the first time I have played this series, and it is fantastic.
Se7en is and will always be one of my favourites. Star Wars. Chris Nolan’s Batman trilogy was outstanding. The Avengers. I really enjoyed both Amazing Spider-Man movies, moreso because Andrew Garfield really nails the character for me.
