I could write a book here. It's like a thanks speech at the Oscars,
there's always going to be someone important you leave out.
Reading: Most sci-fi and fantasy. Both Dune and Lord of the Rings
have an enormous impact on my life. Kurt Vonnegut, Mark Twain, Dave
Eggers, Rumi, Pema Chodron. Calvin and Hobbes. Franny and Zoe. I
always have a book (or stack) on the go.
Movies/TV: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Princess Bride,
Labyrinth, The Dark Crystal, any Pixar, Iron Giant, Shaun of the
Dead, Zombieland, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, Office
Space, Goonies, Superbad, Amelie, Blade Runner, Hot Fuzz,
Inception, The Fountain, Kung Fu Hustle, Monty Python, Venture
Brothers, Firefly, Arrested Development, Adventure Time, Breaking
Bad, House of Cards, Game of Thrones. All Miyazaki, Kurosawa, Wes
Anderson, Guillermo del Toro, Terry Gilliam, Christopher Nolan,
Kubrick. Good sci-fi, bad sci-fi, kung fu, spaghetti westerns, you
name it, I’ll watch it.
Music: tons of classic rock/90's. The past while I've been on a
Radiohead / Modest Mouse / Metric / Muse kick.
Food: All Asian, curries, Mexican. Fine dining, burger joints,
holes in the wall, corner cafes. I love finding new amazing
eateries and discovering a new one with someone is pretty much the
best thing ever. What started me cooking long ago was a
transcendental Thai food experience.
