I don’t read much fiction anymore, but I read news pretty much
constantly. I follow The Dallas Morning News, The Texas Tribune,
The Statesman, and CNN regularly, and I also try to squeeze in Time

their paywall wasn’t so intense.
Favorite movies: Gladiator, Good Night and Good Luck, Big Lebowski,
Blade Runner, the Kingdom, Wrath of Khan, Dogma, and Pan’s
Labyrinth. Bowie Labyrinth is awesome too.
TV shows: My favorite shows are TNG, the X Files, Boston Legal, and
30 Rock. I also like Firefly, the League, Parks & Rec, and
Cowboy Bebop. I found the entirety of Third Rock from the Sun for
dirt cheap on Amazon this summer, so I’ve been periodically binging
on that and missing the 90s.
Music: Right now I’ve got the Ratatat channel on Pandora turned on.
I like to work and work out to music like STS9 and deadmau5, but I
also like Irish rock like Flogging Molly and the Young Dubliners.
I’ve been listening to Mumford & Sons quite a bit too.
Food: I love Thai food, and I’m always game for burgers or
barbeque. My friends and I have a holiday we call “Meat Day” where
we trek to Llano or Lockhart for old fashioned Texas BBQ.
I'm going to add sports teams here: I follow the US National Soccer
team pretty regularly, even though we're headed to "o grupo de
morte" in Brazil next year. I also like the German national team,
and I drive to Houston fairly regularly to catch Houston Dynamo
games with my brother. I also lazily follow the Spurs and the
