I own many design books (mostly pictures). I like science fiction
that says something other than, "Hey, wouldn't it be neat to live
in space?" I need allegory: A Clockwork Orange, The Moon is a Harsh
Mistress. Occasionally, I'll pick up some classic American or
English lit (Johnny Got His Gun).
Movies: Critically-acclaimed, Award-winning dramas and offbeat,
indie comedies (sometimes of the rom. variety) as well as
mid-to-high profile Netflix documentaries.
TV: Girls, Louie, Mad Men, Maron, Portlandia, Silicon Valley &
Music: Apocalyptica, The Beatles, Beastie Boys, Black Sabbath,
Danzig, David Bowie, Metallica, Mr. Oizo, Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana,
Rammstein, Rob Zombie, Rodrigo y Gabriela
Food: With others, it's a special occasion no burger/steak joints,
no deep fried bar&grille, and no nat'l chains. If alone I'll go
anywhere that I can reliably get a cheap, plant-based meal (Qdoba
I love ciders and dark beers, but I'll settle for Stag or High Life
if those aren't an option. Dewar's & water, no ice. Cheap
merlot. I know those aren't sentences.
