I have to admit I've read some self-help books (may be too many of
them actually). For example "The Game" by Neil Strauss, "Models" by
Mark Manson. I've also read some literature about out of body
experiences, lucid dreams and other spiritual things like those.
From time to time I reread Robert Monroe's books because perception
differs at different age. Richard Dawkins is also one of my
"Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!" was nice read as well. I
pretend to understand Hawking's "Short History of Time". And I
think the cycle of Perelman's (Яков Исидорович) books is called
entertaining for the reason.
From fiction I like (or liked?) some of Lukianenko's books. I've
enjoyed reading Harry Potter. Out of pure curiosity tried to read
50 Shades of Gray, but it seemed like a dull book for me.
Literature lessons did make me to avoid reading most of Russian
classics in my free time. May be I'll read something later when
I'll forget this horrible experience of being forced to read
something I'm not interested at the moment.
For music: klezmer, balkan music, electro swing, gypsy music and
other crazy genres. My lastfm
. I hate giving lastfm link to
describe my music tastes, it feels too impersonal, but I guess it's
the only way to describe favorite music of a guy who mixes Infected
Mushroom with Amsterdam Klezmer Band.
Movies and other watchable stuff: Star Wars. The Matrix. Few
sitcoms and TV series which include The Big Bang Theory, Breaking
Bad, Boardwalk Empire, Futurama and few more. I prefer series to
movies for some reason, but I don't watch much of series nowadays
For some reason I enjoy watching let's play series on youtube,
sometimes even more than playing actual game. I'm subscribed for
many Mindcrack guys for example.
