Recently, I've been on a gig that means I commute down to Santa Clara via Caltrain four days a week. Surprisingly, it's the second most relaxing commute I've had. (It would have been first, but it's hard to beat the ferry to Larkspur, especially when there are whales on the starboard bow.)
I like pushing myself. I immigrated to SF from London without a degree or a credit rating and taught myself programming after work. I've made a habit of learning things, pushing my comfort zone, ever since.
(Although, the preceding also depended heavily on a whole host of privileges, with being white and male just the beginning. Stuck in the Shallow End is a good read for how our education system actually avoids educating children.)
I am an excellent book-matchmaker. Give me a book you want to read, and I can recommend you something.
I read less now I have the interwebs, but reading (and generally absorbing every last drop of knowledge I could) was a huge part of my life as a kid. The local library made a special award for me when I graduated because I'd read two thirds of their stack, and it mattered to me more than every grade I ever got in school.
So, with that in mind:
The book that haunts me at odd moments is Mind of My Mind, by Octavia Butler. Non SF, probably The Sheltering Sky.
The book that has had the most impact on me is Hardcore Zen, by Brad Warner.
Best comic book: Locke and Key, followed by Phonogram.
Best comic: Calvin & Hobbes.
The book that I'd like to have the most impact on the world is World on the Edge: How to Prevent Environmental and Economic Collapse by Lester Brown.
The best book is Ficcones, by Jorge Luis Borges.
My favorite book is the one I am reading.
Triangle, The Innkeepers, Battle Royale, Primer, The Descendants, Ruby Sparks, Labyrinth, The Princess Bride. American Splendor.
Bill Hicks, on his Relentless tour in England. Louis CK, Chris Rock. Tim Minchin, Maria Bamford. Banksy. Oh, you mean TV? Game of Thrones. Mythbusters. The Middleman.
There are some songs that stick in the head, but when people talk about music, they're really asking about cultural subgroups. I started off with Tori Amos / NIN when I was 18, moved to PJ Harvey and Blur, had a Poe moment, then had my mind opened by KEXP and started pulling in everything from The Books to The Delgados to Versus to Dessa. These days I'm probably listening to Songza or rewatching this video obsessively. Or this one. Or this one. Or this one. Or this (NSFW) one.
Pulled Pork Sandwich from The Fatted Calf. Brie from Gourmet and More. Gibraltar from Blue Bottle. Sun dried tomato pesto from Caffe Delle Stelle. Allagash Curieux. Angel's Envy Bourbon. Millionaires with home made sloe gin. Thick slices of fresh bread just toasted lightly, with melted butter and marmite. I'm thinking hard about the Crunchy Frog from Lers Ros.
1) Sunlight. Preferably direct sunlight (see 3).
2) 8 hours of sleep. Still working on this.
3) Walkies. Exercise is good, but just being mobile and outside is better.
4) Social interaction. Not intellectual -- it's a grooming thing.
5) Regular meals. Blood sugar spikes are bad. Breakfast and espresso a must.
6) Projects. Must be doable, sensible, and challenging.
More topically, the paradox of government power in a free society, "chilling effects", sexual agency, consumerism, the Internet as a "feels engine", whether "radical chic" is going to morph into high-priced "occupy chic" clothing and wtf brain it is 2 am go to sleep.
However, I'll try anything once. (Except Burning Man. And drugs, including nicotine. Best way not to have a habit is not to start one.)
Standard White People Activities: biking (road and mountain), rock climbing, yoga, meditation, farmers' markets (for steaming veggies), worshipping at the Church of Brunch, binge shopping on Amazon, being mildly astonished that I appear to be a responsible adult, copy pasting from the Dating Ipsum text generator.
