Favourite Visual Artist
Hannah Faith Yata, Gustav Klimt, Tetsuya Ishida, Josephine Wall, Thomas Ewerhard. Everyone I follow on DA of course ;D But Square Enix's creature design for Final Fantasy 10 probably shaped me more than all of them combined.
The Zero Theorem & Last Action Hero (two very different films) I must have watched about 5 times each. Apart from this, some classics like Matrix and LotR.
Favourite TV Shows
True Blood (the best! So famous yet so underrated!), Better Call Saul & Breaking Bad, Bates Motel, early GoT, the first 3 seasons of House MD.
Favourite Bands / Musical Artists
Mainly power, folk and symphonic metal. I could elaborate but 255 characters are too few to describe the importance of music for me, so I won't try.
I read a lot of non-fiction, mainly politics & sociology, anthropology, philosophy, psychology. But I'm also the kind of Tolkien fan who can recite the entire House of Finwë by heart :D
See above. The non-fiction authors who have had the greatest influence on how I view the world were probably Derrick Jensen, Michel Foucault, Heide von Göttner-Abendroth, Wilhelm Reich, Carl Jung and Niklas Luhmann.
Various Forgotten Realms games, the Witcher series, stealth games like the Thief series (except for that atrocious Thiaf game), Deus Ex, and the ultimate stealth game, Neighbours from Hell. You must ghost your enemy in every mission, that's hardcore!
Favourite Gaming Platform
PC Gaming Master Race!
Tools of the Trade
I'm a Linux penguin but Gimp sucks too much ass, so Photoshop all the way. I have a Panasonic Lumix (with a very useful macro filter) and a Fujifilm TX10 camera. Nothing fancy but good for my purposes.
Pretty much what you'd probably expect judging by my art lol - Extended walks in nature, exploring alternate states of consciousness & various experiments in religion, magic, spirituality etc. I can also knit!
