Books: Cloud Atlas, The Giver, Looking for Alaska,
Into The Wild, The Road, Fight Club, The Hunger Games, and books
pertaining to psychology and philosophy (Hume, Emerson, Bentham, as
well as the more modern Peter Singer).
Movies: Kon-Tiki, Never Let Me Go, Vanilla Sky,
Requiem for a Dream, October Sky, Lord of the Rings, The Hours,
Super 8, Mary and Max, Samsara, and a lot more. I think most of my
favorites are more geared towards the dramatic/emotional side of
things, for they grab my attention a lot faster for reasons
unknown. I also spend a lot of free time watching documentaries on
Shows: The Killing, The Walking Dead, Doctor Who,
The Office, Desperate Housewives (first series I've watched
entirely), That 70s Show, South Park, Breaking Bad, and
Music: The Killers (!), Blink 182, Angels &
Airwaves, Sigur Ros, Philip Glass, Devotchka, and Coldplay.
Food: Anything vegan, really! :D I love trying the
vegan versions of non-vegan entrees!
