One of each and why, darlings. Then descriptions of what wasn't
already included by the exemplar.
Book: Amusing Ourselves to Death
I find myself realizing that Huxleyan dystopias are remarkably
appealing, and so I picked up this book on the dangers of media
saturation. I still find contentment to be a higher priority than a
vague concept of freedom.
Outside of that, I enjoy the new weird (à la China Miéville), books
about language (particularly English), most other forms of SF, and
I've recently begun reading The Best American Nonrequired
Movies: Tonari no Totoro
I just really love Miyazaki.
Else I really like comedies, mostly. Also, I must mention how much
I fancy la Nouvelle Vague , and this is because auteurs are
interesting, and I had a crush on the professor who taught me about
the movement, and so found the subject fascinating.
Man. This show just...I wish it had existed when I was a kid so I
could have grown up cooler. Not that Doug and Rocko's Modern Life
weren't the epitome of what Nick should always be...but
Other than that, I like watching TED talks, because I feel like
that counts as academic productivity. Most things from the
Whedonverse appeal to me. I also watch Castle, Community, and a bit
of shoujo anime.
I dunno why. Aesthetic appeal.
I listen to a lot of mostly mainstream things, because when you
drive around with clients who only want to listen to B97, the pop
becomes insinuated until you kind of like it. I also personally
love Ke$ha on a lot of levels. It is worth noting that Elton John
was the soundtrack of my childhood, and that Nocturne in B♭ minor
is my favorite Chopin piece. I say it like 20 times in this
profile, but please to be taking me to shows?
Food: Just feed me.
