Sushi, Pho, steak, molecular gastronomy, Italian...etc.
As long as it is freshly prepared, and delicious. Double points if
it's healthy! Wine pairings are fun too. I'm less for cooked
seafood, but I'll try anything twice.
Archer, Firefly, Daily Show, Colbert (Ask me about my trip to the
Rally!), @Midnight, Star Trek, Sherlock, How I Met Your Mother,
Battlestar Galactica, That Mitchell and Webb Look, The Mighty
Boosh, Full Metal Alchemist, Twin Peaks, FLCL, Gurren Lagann,
Cowboy Bebop, Torchwood, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Adventure
Time, QI, Broadchurch, The Strain, Rick and Morty... Not really TV,
but if you dig the shit out of PBS's YouTube series Idea Channel,
we'll wind up being excellent friends, after the work and time has
been put into it.
Cloud Atlas, Memento, Interstella 5555, Indiana Jones, Star Wars,
Birdman. I go through these so quickly I can't keep very many in my
memory. My Dad used to run a home theater business, so I've seen a
fair share of cinema.
Mostly Indie-rock and house, but I seriously enjoy every flavor. I
try to keep up with whatever is new and excellent. Daft Punk is and
always will be my favorite band. Every year I donate to KEXP and
c89.5. Gotta keep local radio alive! It's so worth it!
Hot Chip, Bonobo, Four Tet, Fleet Foxes (saw em at the Vera
Project, wut wut!), RAC, Flume, Radiohead, Royksopp, AYB Force,
Moderat, LCD Soundsystem (Shut Up and Play the Hits was fantastic,
if you like LCD and haven't seen it yet...), Sylvan Esso, First Aid
Kit, The War on Drugs, Odesza, Run The Jewels, Shearwater (hot
damn, I've listened to the whole Animal Life album about twice a
day for going on two weeks now...1/5/15), Gesaffelstein, Fourplay,
BBC recordings of Beethoven symphonies, The Crusaders, and
Music's been huge for me. My main hobby these days is producing my
own music. If I go without music for too long, my mood inexplicably
plummets. It's also the quickest way to get me out of a funk. Or
into a funk, if you're Bootsy Collins.
Right now I'm burning through Anathem at an amazing rate. I think
it's going to wind up being my favorite book! Other than
S. (Ship of Theseus), Redwall, Shadow of the Wind, anything by
Palahniuk, RPG sourcebooks, Wise Man's Fear, Tales of the Black
Company, Dune, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, Game of
Thrones, The Kingkiller Chronicles, Foucault (although that's more
of a masochistic endeavor. I try to read one book of Philosophy a
year just to keep that mindset practiced), The Art of War, Sandman,
DMZ, The Massive, the latest run of Hawkeye, Ultimate Marvel
Universe, From Hell, Ode to Kirihito, Transmetropolitan,
Cryptonomicon, The Good American. I recently severely downsized my
book collection due to the ever-shrinking size of my room as I move
closer to the urban core of the city, and that bothers me in a real
