At points in my life I really read a lot of books, but I'm spending
vastly more time reading news on the internet than reading books at
this point in my life -- there's a lot of news to read. But
otherwise I had also been reading a lot of books on Balkan/Ottoman
history, digging into source documents, etc. (this research was
toward a specific end.) But otherwise everything you'd really
this moment's random favorite book: Pedro Paramo by Juan
Various movies, music, but sort of cynical about the popular
culture industry driving consumerism, misogyny, militarism, racism,
the prison-industrial complex, etc...
I haven't owned a television in more than four years.
Healthy and ethical eating is important to me, and I function as
nearly a vegan. To be clear I should specify here that I actually
sometimes eat fish now but practically never dairy or eggs (unless
I know the person who has the chicken coop in a backyard or
whatever) and definitely never meat. I have my ethical reasoning to
this and would love to talk about it, but this might not be the
space for the essay.
Ok, and aesthetic appreciation of food is also important (in
relative terms) to me and I have diverse tastes as far as that
goes. Fan of curry, must be very hot.
