I consume very little in the way of television and movies, though
I'm currently fond of Archer, Community, and The Daily Show, and my
favorite films are Tron, In Bruges, and The Blues Brothers.
I listen to a lot of indie rock/pop. Names you may have heard of
include The Killers, Vampire Weekend, and The Dresden Dolls.
Lesser-known favorites include Lucky Soul, Los Campesinos!, Mew,
and Stars. Or just see
and excuse the middle-school username.
In literature, I'm drawn to works of detective fiction, fantasy
adventure, and mathematical or computer-scientific expatiation.
Douglas Adams, Terry Pratchett, H.G. Wells, Neal Stephenson, and
Dashiell Hammett are some of my favorites. I don't get as much time
as I'd like to read books cover-to-cover, but I'm still always
looking for suggestions.
I also read a lot of webcomics, which are doing lots of interesting
things with an art form that's been largely regressive for decades.
Scary Go Round, Wondermark, Broodhollow, Dinosaur Comics, and
Buttersafe are just a few of the more generally excellent
Also, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Diablo II
are the best video games ever made. You don't even know.
