I've been spending a lot of time recently catching up on my
philosophy, with a particular emphasis on the philosophy and
history of science. Really enjoyed Feyerabend's Against Method,
trying to decide where to start with Kant.
In so far as I have a favorite genre of books for pleasure reading,
it's probably fantasy with a dash of sci-fi: Richard K. Morgan,
Patrick Rothfuss, Neil Gaiman, Brandon Sanderson, Brent Weeks,
Robert Jordan, Douglass Adams, Peter V. Brett, Neal Stephenson, you
get the idea.
All that said, I spend far more time reading long-form journalism
and essays than I do books.
Music is mostly electronic, indie, classical, punk, hip-hop, dance
The only TV shows I keep up on are The Daily Show and The Colbert
Report. I occasionally binge on Arrested Development, Archer,
Scrubs, or Venture Bros.
Oh, and Brian Williams is hilarious.
When I'm at the stove, I tend to cook Italian and Mexican style
dishes with a kick. When someone else is responsible for cooking,
I'll eat basically anything that won't kill me.
