* Isaac Asimov: "violence is the last resort of the
* Terry Pratchett: humorous humanist.
* Walt Whitman: open greatness.
Philosophy: Look, it is possible to like philosophy without being a

Eliezer Yudkowsky made sense of stuff.

* Pacific Rim: it's not the lone hero that wins the day, but
teamwork, friendship, honesty, and trust.

Anime: FLCL, Eva, Bebop, Attack On Titan, Madoka, Ouran,
Psycho-Pass, Gankutsuou (dem fabrics!), Kill La Kill, Vinland

Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, which is pure fun.
Comic books: Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman, Grant Morrison, Alejandro
General: John Green, especially his Crash Course.
Relationship stuff: The Ethical Slut, Opening Up.
Food: I like strong, complex tastes, with lots of spices, but not
so spicy that the taste of the actual food is lost.
