I'm currently conductining a laziness experiement, with the hopes that when I reach the far end of the productivity-laziness spectrum, it'll just wrap around to the other side.
In accordance with my current goals, I generally prefer entertainment that involves my teevee. I love video games: MMOs, hack n slash, puzzle games, PC RPGs (King's Quest VII and Dark Sun hold special places in my heart), Guitar Hero (x3), and most any game I can consistently beat other people at. I also really like things I can buy on DVD or download (did you know that EVA 8000s broadcast a subliminal signal that pushes you to download media relentlessly?). I love action, sci-fi, crime drama, fantasy, intelligent/dark humor, and Joss Whedon. Basically, the more removed from everyday life something is, the more likely I'm going to enjoy it. And really, isn't that the whole point of television and its myriad of peripherals?
I have an English degree, so yes, I like books and such as well. And science. Science is cool.
Things I like in my anime: demons, bumbling badasses, developed characters, complex fight scenes, vampires, 10000 PSI bloodspray, big swords, big guns, long and well crafted storylines, and at least one female character I can respect.
Oh, I like funny stuff too! (Especially when it offsets bloody and violent stuff.)
