Books: Snow Crash, Cat's Cradle, anything by William Gibson, Neil
Gaiman, David Sedaris, or Warren Ellis. Also a fan of graphic
novels like Transmetropolitan, Preacher, Fables and The Walking
TV: Breaking Bad, The Walking Dead, Dexter, Battlestar Galactica
(the remake), 30 Rock, Community, Parks & Recreation.
I have a thing for old samurai movies.
Music: my tastes are broad and jump around a lot, but I tend to
steer clear of anything that sounds too much like generic pop,
whatever that sounds like at the time. I like a good beat, but I'll
take a chill melody too. On my iTunes you'll find 90s grunge,
modern trance, techno, hip hop, nerdcore hip hop, 60s progressive
rock, movie soundtracks, classical remixes, trap music, blues,
jazz, choir, chill, the Russian national anthem and many MANY gigs
of podcasts like This American Life and Radiolab. What I'm
listening to at the moment depends on how I feel and whether I'm
working on something.
Food: These days I try to avoid anything high in carbs and
calories, so I eat a lot of veggie-heavy things, like salads and
seafood stir fry with thai curry. Also a big fan of Mexican food
(diet be damned).
