I think the Wii U is wonderful! The games look great, it's very useful as a TV remote, the browser is actually pretty good, as opposed to the god-awful browsers that other consoles have had in the past. The Miiverse is really fun to use and I could see it being great for hints to tough parts of a game, friendly discussion, all that stuff. I'm just waiting for more games to play on it. (Let's go, E3!)
I like handhelds a good bit, I am mostly a console gamer, but I own a 3DS, and I use it moderately. There really hasn't been one game yet that has completely glued me to the 3DS, but Fire Emblem: Awakening, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, or Pokemon X/Y may very well change that.
Examples? hmm, well my favorite bands are Glassjaw, Ling Tosite Sigure, Deftones, Moving Mountains, The Mars Volta, Thrice, Coheed & Cambria, and there's a whole lot more, haha.
I don't watch all that much TV, though enough friends have recommended me Breaking Bad and Twin Peaks that I may go ahead and try that out.
I honestly haven't had all that much time to sit down with a book, I'm usually busy with something else like a game or a movie. That should change, huh?
Recently, I've been into movies with a distinct style, stuff like Looper, Drive, Scott Pilgrim VS. The World and stuff. I'll watch anything though, actually I watched The Grey a few days back, and I loved it.
