Ecce Homo: How to Become What You Are, by Nietzsche, changed my
life years ago by changing how I viewed myself and others.
On the Phenomenology of the Consciousness of Internal Time
(Husserl), Selfhood and Subjectivity (Zahavi), and How the Body
Shapes the Mind (Gallagher) instilled in me a love of phenomenology
and overwhelming interest in psychopathology.
I like sci-fi, most notably Doctor Who, and zombie shows and movies
such as The Walking Dead and 28 Days Later. I also like anything
medieval or magical (I loved the Harry Potter books and movies),
and anything where every character is an asshole (looking at you,
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia).
I like my music to express something, not simply through the lyrics
but through the music. I am a big fan of ugly voices, and I also
think that stupidity has its place in music. As such, I'm a big fan
of post-emo, emo, and post-rock, used to be really into punk during
my adolescence, and can really appreciate ween. I also like
math-rock, electronic, etc. My favorite band is Modest Mouse,
particularly their older stuff (Sad Sappy Sucker is beautiful), and
my favorite album is "Building Nothing out of Something."
I love to try new, healthy recipes. Pasta is a mainstay in my
current diet, as are various egg dishes (especially omelets and
over-easy with tons of veggies). Indian food might be my favorite
