My favorite is The sirens of Titan from Kurt Vonnegut. Read many of
his other books too and enjoyed the novels the most.
Also like books from Laszlo Mero, who writes about math and
psychology that are consumable for the rest of us.
Also liked Isaac Asimov's foundation and Herbert's Dune.
The movies I like the most are life drama comedy
. Enjoyed Little Miss Sunshine
especially the 'fuck beauty contests' part. My new favorite is
Moonrise Kingdom. I am bit techie so definitely like action movies
that are all about visuals.
It Crowd and Coupling. Oh well, the BBC productions!
