Books: I mostly read non-fiction political books (for school and
for fun). Books I've recently read: 'It's Even Worse Than It
Looks', 'Arguably Essays' (a collection of Christopher Hitchens
essays), 'The Zinn Reader' (a collection of Howard Zinn essays -
his 'A People's History' is probably one of my favorites), 'Doctors
and the State'.
Movies: I don't really have a 'favorite' movie, but I guess some
kind of top 5 includes: Field of Dreams, Karate Kid, Almost Famous,
Good Will Hunting, and Bull Durham.
Shows: I watch the Daily Show/Colbert Report almost every day, and
a lot of news/baseball (Democracy Now is quite good). I like the
Office, How I Met Your Mother, and Parks and Rec as well. My
favorite no longer running shows - Seinfeld, Freaks and Geeks,
Undeclared, Trailer Park Boys, Boy Meets World.
Music: I usually opt for podcasts/NPR over music when I'm
exercising or commuting to school. I guess my top choice of a band
to see would be Phish - I used to kind of be into jam band
concerts/festivals, but haven't been to any in a while (I really
hope this isn't the first stage of becoming an 'adult'). My dad's a
jazz musician back home, so I enjoy listening to his CD's that he
gives me as a xmas present every year (and watching him or other
jazz musicians perform live). Generally I prefer more instrumental
type of music, but am open minded about stuff I've never heard
before. Other than that, I'm kind of oblivious to contemporary
music trends since I don't listen to music on the radio or
anything. I guess I have a good time jamming out to 80's and 90's
music when I'm drinking with friends, so that counts for
Food: yes, I like food.
