Music, Movies, and Books

Far, far, far too many to name. Demolish books and movies, soft spot for sci-fi and fantasy but love a good drama and clever comedy (the darker the better). Music, generally hard rock/metal but also classical, mainstream rock and alternative. Melbourne is starting to get me into folksy stuff too! Echuca introduced me to the blues.
