I have a hard time making decisions and picking favorites because
so many things can be good and not really comparable. Let's try
anyways. I am a huge fan of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
The book is the best version, but ever incarnation is wonderful. I
also enjoy hard science fiction books, the kind based on real
science. Dave Barry is probably the funniest writer in the world,
right up there with the late Douglas Adams.
There are so many good movies. I can't really pick favorites again.
I tend to enjoy comedies and science fiction the most. Spaceballs
is absolutely brilliant in a Mel Brooks sort of way. I haven't
really kept up with movies lately. I will watch an occasional
documentary or independent film on Netflix.
I watch TV. There is some very high quality smart TV out there. I
watch that, but I also watch a lot of regular TV. Some of the
better stuff, New Girl, Shameless, Breaking Bad, Modern Family, Dr.
Who, Arrested Development, Orange is the New Black, True Blood, and
Game of Thrones of course.
I like a variety of music. I prefer smaller serious bands over Top
40, well, at least if I'm paying for it. If it's at a house party,
fine, top 40 can be good dancing. Concerts and festivals I would go
to would be on the more hippy side. Venues I like include Terminal
West and Northside Tavern.
Food, well, I have a passion for food. I almost became a chef.
choosing between chemistry and cooking was difficult. In the end i
chose chemistry, it keeps me in school, potentially forever as a
professor. I can be creative with my cooking when I decide
I like craft beer. Like most people, IPA's are my favorite.
However, I enjoy most styles. It's winter beer season now, so lots
of great porters and stouts will be available. Sours are the new
"it" beer, and I'm enjoying them so far. The Atlanta beer scene is
relatively small, but growing.
I'm trying to get more into sushi. I don't eat it enough. I haven't
been able to find good Indian food in Atlanta. There was one place
I mostly liked, but it went out of business.
I've built up quite a tolerance to capsaicin accidentally. A hot
sauce has to be at least habanero hot for me to get a kick out of
it. This makes ordering hot food out tricky. It's usually not hot
enough. Some places might serve it too hot for challengers. The
risk of that, is that going too hot causes your tolerance to go up
more, making the problem worse.
