Food - Indian, Ethiopian, Thai, Middle-Eastern. I am a vegan, and
have been a vegan or vegetarian for many years though I am not one
to evangelize, call attention to it, or for it to be an
Music - I have a background in music and my tastes are all over the
place, from rock to rap, jazz to... about anything. My favorites
are still Radiohead and Wilco, electronic trancey/chill music and
bands that put me into a good place like The XX.
Movies - Also a wide range of interests from independent and
foreign films, documentaries, as well as the occasional
blockbuster. As far as a favorite film, would have to go with the
Big Lebowski (which people tend to love or hate.)
Books - I read mostly non-fiction but it's the works of fiction
that tend to stay with me. I enjoy Malcolm Gladwell, Neal
Stephenson, Michael Chabon, and read all of Kurt Vonnegut. Lately I
have not been reading as many books (though I haven't slowed down
on buying them) as I am seemingly trying to make my way through the
entire internet (or at least it seems that way.) I have been
reading a lot on sexuality (I mentioned being a sex geek) which
includes Sex at Dawn, The Ethical Slut, Opening Up, Ecstasy is
Necessary, Bonk... the list does go on.
TV Shows - mostly cable drams like Game of Thrones, Mad Men,
Masters of Sex, Breaking Bad, True Blood. I watch the Daily Show
and Colbert Report near daily. I have watched the run of Arrested
Development, Freaks and Geeks, Firefly and Archer more than a few
I travel often and listen to a lot of podcasts. I enjoy
storytelling like Risk, This American Life (big Ira Glass fan), The
Moth, Radiolab, and sexuality podcasts like Savage Love, In Bed
With Susie Bright, and a number of sex-positive podcasts which were
critical to me accepting myself and having the courage to share it
with my wife. Podcasts have been a great tool to learn more about
the world around me.
