This is a single field?
Books: Current reading: Richard Hell's Autobiography Kafka on the
shore Solar Lottery by Phillip K. Dick. I enjoy different stuff for
different reasons but I've always kind of been a geek for sci-fi,
philosophy, and some religious texts (as literature).
I really enjoyed reading Marcus Aurelius' "meditations" recently as
I tried to listen to some Richard Feynman books on tape stuff but
I'm way too dumb to understand quantum physics that isn't designed
for children and idiots.
The New York Times
Time Magazine (occasionally)

Rosemary's Baby, Anatomy of a Murder, Rear Window, The Omen,

I kinda liked beasts of the southern wild but the end when the pigs
came to the girl... Lame. Don't ruin something cool and abstract
with some bad CGI/live action merger.

If you care we can discuss it further.
Food: Bold flavours. I eat sushi with a masochistic amount of
Wasabi, Maximum spice in my curry. I have a few things that don't
appeal to me, but in general I like everything from Thai, Cuban,
Mexican, Soul food, Classic Cheeseburgers done right, bistro food,
french cooking, seafood, Tibetan, Ecuadorian and fusion if it's
conceptually sound and executed properly. In general, if it's done
well (and isn't something like lutefisk ) I'm totally into
More Salt and Saffron. I have recently begun to turn against
cilantro although I can't put my finger on why.
