I'm spending vastly more time reading news, etc 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 a lot of really old source
documents, etc. Recently discovering that JSTOR access is awesome,
taking in a lot of literature on geopolitics, international
relations, international law, especially as these subjects concern
US militarism. My favorite book was 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...
Recently listening most often to: The Cars, Violent Femmes, Bowie,
Pink Floyd, ELO, Buddy Holly, Taylor Swift, Run The Jewels, Joanna
Gruesome, oOoOOO, Grimes, etc. I feel like I like most genres
especially recently glam, punk, pop, noise, some electronic, some
metal, really most rap in general especially violent political rap
and gangsta rap.
I like deconstructing television news through a Chomskyan prism of
analysis. I spent many years not watching television at all (around
6 years without owning a television), right now I actually think I
actually need to watch television more often just to be more
I function as pretty nearly a vegan. I 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). I like Thai, Indian,
Mediterranean, Japanese. Fruit in general, especially plums,
pluots, peaches, kiwis.
