Favorite TV Shows Community, The Office, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Chuck, Burn Notice, Bones, Saved By The Bell, New York Undercover, Scrubs, Smallville, Transformers, Ghostbusters and Chappelle's Show, just to name a few. Oh yeah, the Nick Toons from the '90s, like Doug and Ren & Stimpy, were dope. Favorite Movies Terminator 2: Judgment Day (saw that when I was 8 years old. Gotta love cousins who don't care about movie ratings), Office Space, Superbad, Old School, Wedding Crashers (I love Rachel McAdams), Jurassic Park, Above The Rim, Friday, The Hangover, Serendipity (shut up, I love Kate Beckinsale too), Underworld, and Napoleon Dynamite (which I saw TWICE in theaters before it got popular with bandwagon fans). Favorite Music Now this is the tough one. Well, here goes. I love The Cure, Aaliyah (R.I.P. Baby Girl), 2Pac, Taking Back Sunday, Brand New, Rise Against, Mat Kearney, The Starting Line, Feist, My Chemical Romance, New Order, Depeche Mode, Stevie Wonder, R. Kelly, Lifehouse (shut up), Avenged Sevenfold, Eminem, Kid Rock, White Stripes, Interpol, The National, Editors, Joe, Joshua Radin, Anberlin, and so many more artists that it would take forever to list. As you can see, I like a lot of different music. Favorite Sports Teams Of course I have to list my hometown teams, like the Red Wings, Pistons and Tigers. Lions who? Don't get it twisted. I am not a bandwagon fan. I've supported the Pistons through the teal jersey era and went to Tigers games when they were losing 100+ games a season. Favorite Video Games Street Fighter II, The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past, Mortal Kombat, Final Fantasy VIII, Metal Gear Solid, NHL '94, NBA Live '98, NBA Jams, Master Blaster, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game, Goldeneye 64, Persona 3 and a couple of TurboGrafx-16 games. Yes, I own a TurboGrafx-16. Don't judge.
