Books: A lot of sci-fi, though I do still need to read the
Foundation Trilogy (I know, I just havent yet and at this point I
worry its over-hyped. Like Dune. I hated Dune.) I love Vernor
Vinge, and I do have a fondness for Michener. I think I'd like to
branch out from the world of Sci-Fi/Fantasy though- I feel like I
want something to sink my teeth into, and as much as I love Gaiman,
Butcher, things like Song of Ice and Fire, I want something with
I do like a lot of non fiction- James Glieck has a few good books,
I forget the name of the guy that goes the really narrative
histories- The Devil in the White City is one I read lately that I
loved. Bring on suggestions.
Currently reading The History of White People (which is a
historical look at why there's this notion of whiteness and how its
been used in society. Spoiler alert: bad science done to affirm
positions that validated and enforced power structures has a lot to
do with it) and Guns, Germs. and Steel. I just finished Fun Home by
Alison Bechdel. When I've finished what I'm currently reading,
Infinite Jest is next up.
Movies: Bad sci fi movies, good sci fi movies, eye candy movies,
stupid action films, kung fu movies, cerebral indies.
Shows: Dr Who, RuPauls Drag Race, ST:TNG, battlestar galactica,
Lexx, Buffy. Also, I believe the industry term for me in regards to
TV programming is either a "cord cutter" or a "cord never".
Music: Almost everything. Honestly. When I put my music on shuffle
it has an odd tendency to switch back and forth between indie
folk/bluegrass and rap.
Food: I like food. I recently became a vegan, for both health and
moral reasons. Its been great.
