A few examples, carefully selected to express certain traits or
class markings, as is done on this kind of site.
saccharine, callipygian, gestalt, parasol
Lord of Light, Use of Weapons, Discipline and Punish,
Name of the Wind, Terry Pratchett, Baby Rudin, not Ayn Rand.
Since Jonah Lehrer broke my heart, I'm suspicious of writers
like Malcolm Gladwell and Daniel H. Pink. As a scientist with a
working bullshit detector (especially of my own), I'm suspicious of
too good a story. That being said, I did like Daring Greatly by
Her, Blade Runner, Juno, Moon, Secretary, Flight
Club, Moonrise Kingdom.
1000000007 and 1000000009.
The Daily Show, Colbert, Black Mirror, QI,
Babylon, Doctor Who.
VNV Nation, Florence + the Machine, M.I.A., Orbital,
The 9th, Underworld, Stravinsky.
I'm not above listening to some saccharine pop music, whatever
comes up on the radio when I'm driving. Judge away.
Thai, Chaat, Ethiopian, Salads (see above).
Don't make me choose. I love them all equally... Not really, I
