Books: Way too many to list. I read almost constantly. I just got
caught up on the Game of Thrones series, and I'm also a big fan of
Robert J. Sawyer's science fiction. I absolutely idolize George
Orwell. I also read a lot of nonfiction; my current favourites are
Reza Aslan's How to Win a Cosmic War, Michael Pollan's The
Omnivore's Dilemma, and Jared Diamond's Collapse.
Movies: I'm split on movies. On the one hand, I really enjoy a
really good, dramatic movie that gets me thinking, but on the other
hand I also enjoy really stupid summer blockbusters. Currently my
favourites are Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Sunshine, Inception,
Shows: Game of Thrones (obviously), Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead,
The Newsroom, Battlestar Galactica, and Dr. Who. I watch Dexter,
but mainly just because I'm getting strung along by all the
cliffhangers- I think the show as a whole is a bit past its prime.
I also enjoy TV documentaries. Human Planet is one of my
Music: The Strokes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Killers, Wolfmother,
Admiral Fallow, Mother Mother, Ben Caplan and the Causal Smokers,
Gorillaz, Modest Mouse, Danger Mouse, Deadmau5 Parov Stelar,
Crystal Castles, Beethoven, Bach, George Gershwin, and Maurice
Ravel, to name a few. I recently discovered an Australian ukelele
electro-swing outfit that plays songs about sustainability. My
tastes are a bit eclectic.
Food: Just about anything if it's cooked well. Some of my
particular favourites are venison, sushi, and good barbecue.
