My life philosophy is you can either laugh or you can cry but laughing is more fun. And the problem with self-awareness is if you don't have it, you don't know it. And that bullshit never truly dies, it just turns into new and more annoying kinds of bullshit. OK, I guess I have three philosophies.
Talking about stuff I find really interesting but is useless in everyday life. I can tell you who Pierre Bourdieu is or why Otto von Bismarck was important. This goes double for politics - I think I use the part of the brain most guys use for sports for politics instead. I can really clean up on trivia night though...
I also give killer book recommendations.
Movies - The Blues Brothers is my favorite film of all time. Other faves include Dr. Strangelove, Trainspotting, Fight Club, the Producers, Blazing Saddles, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Groundhog Day, the Butterfly Effect, and Pan's Labyrinth.
Books - Now that I'm out of grad school I finally have time for pleasure reading again. I read a fair amount of non-fiction (lots of history and sociology, some psychology and philosophy) and fiction (sci fi and fantasy mostly - out and proud geek here). Some of my favorite writers are Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Jared Diamond, Kim Stanley Robinson, China Mieville, George RR Martin, Joseph Heller, Dave Barry, Michel Foucault, and Isaac Asimov.
Music- If you don't like (or at least tolerate) Pink Floyd we may have problems getting along. Other favorite artists: Radiohead, Modest Mouse, Arcade Fire, Nirvana, Aphex Twin, the Beatles, Daft Punk, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol, the Doors, Caribou, Bill Baird, Johnny Cash, Portishead
