I think a lot about the future and my place in society as a technical person. We live in the Anthropocene, and I find that both exciting and terrifying.
coming to grips with my own mortality.
... pretending like I know what I'm doing.
I've been frequently complemented on the unusually vertical nature of my hair. Nope, I don't know why it does that either.
Internet Reading: Metafilter,
Movies: My current favorite old movies are Touch of Evil, Arsenic and Old Lace, and The Lady from Shanghai. For something recent, I'd say it's a toss-up between There Will Be Blood, The Thing, and The Grand Budapest Hotel. I really like kitschy horror from the 1980s, Coen brothers' and John Hughes' films, and anime (e.g., Miyazaki: Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind; Satoshi Kon: Paprika; Ghost in the Shell, Akira, etc.).
Shows: I've listened to Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me on NPR almost every Saturday since 1998.
Games: Japanese RPGs, particularly Final Fantasy (IV on SNES -> XII), Metal Gear Solid (1->4), Xenogears, and all these emulated ones (like Tales of Phantasia) that never came out in the US. Way back in grade school, I rocked Windows 95 and every non-FPS PC adventure game I could get my hand on: Myst, Riven, Betrayal at Antara, Age of Empires 2, Deus Ex, etc. I have fond memories of Math Blaster. For physical games: Xactika, chess, Settlers of Catan, and chess.
Music: I gravitate towards international vocalists, electronic music, film soundtracks, classical music (almost entirely Russian composers), progressive rock, and classic/revival genres (e.g., jazz and `neo-jazz', whatever that means).
Foods: vegetables, ethnic foods, New American, anything homemade. I generally don't eat sweets, but I do shower them on others. I cook a lot, and have surprisingly long-term goals about getting better at it.
Once, in a moment of mania and dire existential crisis, I walked into every corner store and bodega between 16th Street/Mission and Bernal Heights. When did Mission turn into fucking Disneyland?
Fake handles are a terrible way of remaining anonymous.
