A few recent and notable experiences:
-Bone Thugs 'n Harmony at the Middle East ('90 throwback, who says no to that?)
-Transiberian Orchestra at the Garden
- Noam Chomsky lecture on a Weapons Free Zone in the Middle East
- Science of Sweets at the MIT Museum (with an open bar and secret basement tetris)
-Vogue Competition at the ICA
...that I prefer to write/draw with a pencil.
Movies - "Run Lola, Run" and "Amelie" are a couple favorites--beautiful movies that make you look at the world differently.
Music - Currently loving Asaf Avidan and Tom Waits. Always loving Johnny Cash and Queen.
Food - Ice cream no matter what time of day. I love a good street market mango--devour it straight off the pit and deal with the mess later. Cilantro makes me sad inside.
Podcasts (bonus!) -- Radiolab, This American Life, Stuff You Should Know, Invisibilia, SheDoes
...bending the rules from time to time.

Why few people find my corny science jokes funny.
ex. Why did one tectonic plate break up with the other tectonic plate? There was too much friction!
Seriously. That's hilarious.
