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.
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, Reddit, Boing Boing , NYTimes, The Economist, arXiv, Arts and Letters Daily, Hacker News, Arstechnica, SMBC, Perry Bible Fellowship, xkcd ...
Movies: My current favorite old movies are Touch of Evil and Arsenic and Old Lace. For something recent, I'd say it's a toss-up between There Will Be Blood, The Thing, and Fantastic Mr. Fox. 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: TV? Three years ago, I think I watched all of Arrested Development and tried to keep up with Battlestar Galactica and True Blood: I failed miserably. Futurama, Adventure Time, Seinfeld, Cowboy Bebop, No Reservations, The Daily Show, and the American version of The Office all come to mind too. I still listen to Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me on NPR every Saturday.
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: You should make an account on Spotify, if you haven't already. 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.
My Friday nights are low key, and I generally spend them with friends or work on something not school-related. I'm currently excited about using syringes, bulk transglutaminase, and an X-Y table to build a 3D-printer for meat. Don't you want a desktop chicken-statue additive manufacturing apparatus!?
Fake handles are a terrible way of remaining anonymous.

you like blueberry muffins, and anything tangentially related to them, like hummus, brocolli, or soup dumplings.
you know a good word for `something virtual made physical or real.'
you are skilled at lucid dreaming and want to talk about those experiences. I'm super-interested if you've been able to deliberately levitate objects or read real, but previously-unread, books in your dreams.
you like raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles, and/or warm woolen mittens, but neither silver white winters that melt into springs nor brown paper packages tied up with strings.
