Hm, books.. I don't have favorites, so much as ones I'm currently
reading, I guess.. I want to get back to Hallucinations by Oliver
Sacks some day. Currently reading The Singularity is Near by Ray
Kurzweil, and listening to Zen and the Art of Motorcycle
Maintenance by Robert Pirsig in my car. I enjoy reading about the
brain, science, philosophy, and speculative fiction. I feel
Movies, there's always Fight Club. Moonrise Kingdom. Tree of Life.
I'm pretty open to anything which isn't a dumb comedy. I'm sure
I'll fill in more later, and I'm also open to suggestions. I love
Baraka and Samsara, though I wouldn't call them date movies. Well,
actually.. there might be something special about any two people

Shows.. Oh, I can give some these days. Archer, Breaking Bad, The
Walking Dead. Radiolab, which you can sort of call a show? Anything
in the Ghost in the Shell universe. Lie To Me. I don't have cable
or anything, but you really don't need to these days,
Music.. Tool. Warren Zevon. Shpongle. Hybrid. Underworld. The Orb.
Pendulum. I find myself listening to more electronic music than
anything, and I'm not ashamed to admit to enjoying nuggets of
dubstep as a guilty pleasure. This is all when I'm working,
exercising, or cooking and cleaning. I'll listen to just about
anything, though - Classical, rock, blues, hiphop, jazz,
experimental blips and boops.. Electronic is my standby music of
choice, but I'll gladly be exposed to anything. There's a notable
difference, in my mind, between "having music on" and "listening to
music", for what that's worth.
For food, I'm almost totally vegetarian. Once or twice a month,
I'll eat fish.. usually sushi. Otherwise, my favorite general
styles are southwest American and Indian. I make chili often in the
fall through spring. I don't eat meat because I don't
need to, but have nothing against anyone who
chooses a different approach.
