I always have a huge stack of books lined up to read, but move
through them slowly due to attention span. Despite being a
programmer, I shun ebooks.
Last few favorites: John Dies at the End, House of Leaves, Children
of the Mind, The Divine Invasion.
I really want to read more Philip K. Dick. Favorite author is
I don't like a ton of comics, but love the more
counterculture-esque stuff. Doom Patrol, Transmetropolitan, The
Invisibles, etc. Deadpool is hilarious. Nearly anything with a
cyberpunk element to it and sometimes some weird/horror
vids, horror, b-movies, post-apocalyptic stuff,
kung-fu, spaghetti westerns, french movies about existential crises
where some dude shaves off his moustache for the first time in 15
years and his wife doesn't notice and so he loses his mind,
bizarre/disturbing asian movies. Basically the more WTF the better,

I don't have a good way to describe my tastes. Here's a *[playlist]*
that might capture it a bit.
My favorite artist of all time is Foetus/J.G Thirlwell. His musical

character he plays.
My current obsession is stuff like Perturbator
. I'm basically stuck on a lot of synth-heavy stuff I find on soundcloud
Akira Yamaoka, Cibo Matto, Boards Of Canada, Malice Mizer, Devo,
Yma Sumac, Mr. Bungle, Fela Kuti, Kavinsky, Principles Of Geometry,
Noir Deco, Justice, Skinny Puppy, Foetus (J.G. Thirlwell),
Rudimentary Peni, Shostakovich, old film scores, gypsy/klezmer,
eerie/dark ambient, chiptunes, sexy 60's spy film music,
Overall I'm not much of a fan of the whole "3-5 white dudes with a
bass, guitar & some drums" thing and often prefer a lack of
Pretty much anything. I avoid starchy carbs and sugar. I won't eat
stuff like foie gras. I experiment with my diet a lot, but overall
am not too picky of an eater. Also I'm pretty much addicted to
strongly brewed rose flavored chai.
