Likes: Music, good movies, bad movies, classic video games, rain, robots, coffee, when steaks go half-price 3 days before the sell-by date
Dislikes: Mediocre movies, people who don’t realize/don’t care that a line has formed at the bus stop and that it’s rude to cut said line, when you catch your headphone cable on something and it’s ripped out from your ears, overcrowded gym after new years
Useless Trivia: Consistently ranks in the 98th percentile of last.fm users in terms the number of distinct artists, albums and tracks listened to.
