I recently read A Brief History of Time, but I usually
find myself browsing reference texts. I'm trying to read more
fiction though; I'm partway through Catch-22, and
Gravity's Rainbow is high on my list. Additional
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is my favorite movie,
but that may just be because I watched it while high. A close
second would be Die Hard, because I started watching it
immediately before the same high. Ah, California...
To say that Futurama is my favorite show would be a
colossal understatement. I also like Sherlock, The
Wire, and shows with Malcolm Reynolds, Walter White, Sterling
Malory Archer, or Daenerys Targaryen.
Almost every type of music has something I can study and enjoy.
Naturally, I find certain genres more compelling (instrumental
rock, jazz/fusion, classical), but there are too many worthy
artists in each to even begin listing them.
As for food, I'll both try and enjoy just about anything.
