Books: I love, love, love Lewis Carroll’s Alice
books and Dune by Frank Herbert; I’m currently reading the
excellent A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge. In my misspent
youth I was a big fan of Stephen King, but I rarely read his stuff
Non-fiction favourites include things like Godel, Escher, Bach by
Douglas Hofstadter and The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph
Movies: Anything that's quirky without being too
pretentious. The Big Lebowski, Brazil and Star Wars are all films
I've seen countless times.
Music: I'm a rock kind of guy, mainly listening to
progressive rock and New Wave. Favourite bands include Yes, Pink
Floyd and The Cars.
TV: At the moment, my favourite shows are The
Colbert Report, Breaking Bad, Futurama and Justified. My all-time
favourite series, however, has to be Carl Sagan’s Cosmos.
Foods: the odd bit of Italian, Indian, Mexican,
Thai or Russian usually suits me well.
