Books: I like reading. I like when a book provokes
me to look at things differently. I can lose myself a little while
reading (George Martin seems to be quite efficient at causing
this). I can't say I have a favorite genre, but do find science
fiction more interesting on average. Random tidbits:
- Carl Sagan awe for science beats most, if not all, poetry.
- "Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality" is purely
- I'm waiting eagerly for Jacek Dukaj to write yet another book, I
will suck it whole. Sadly, usually Polish only.
- You should read "You Are Not So Smart" or equivalent. Everybody
Sadly, there's never enough time for reading.
Movies: "Brazil", "V for Vendetta", "Black Snake
Moan", Trier's "Kingdom", "Black Cat, White Cat", "Constantine",
"Genghis Blues", Herzog movies and "Cave of forgotten dreams" in
particular, TV series: "Firefly", "Carnivale", "Breaking Bad", "The
Wire". On the humorous side, Monty Python and "Who's line is it
anyway" are absolute classics.
Music: Depends on the mood, the range is quite
wide: jazz, blues, indie rock, world music, still some metal,
sometimes something electronic.. this list can't ever be complete.
And, of course, Tom Waits. I do, however, struggle with arranging
the playlists myself - they fail to surprise me. ;)
Three things that stuck in my head for a while already: Pentaphobe
"Kitten Pig", Laibach "Whistleblowers" and Rocks opportunity "What
else is rhere".
Food: I could live on seafood alone, almost.
