Books: I read The Black Swan
and The Signal and
back to back, which was interesting and I recommend
both for their contrasting viewpoints, especially if you liked
I finished The Hunger Games
the series but I have mixed feelings about the conclusion. I've
enjoyed all the books in A Song of Ice and Fire
I'm also eagerly waiting for the third book in the Kingkiller Chronicle
I was a huge fan of The Selfish Gene
, a book
which made me rethink my ideas about morality. While its not
strictly a book I love The Burning Wheel
me insights and ideas I can borrow in other contexts.
I could be at this all day, really, so I guess I'll stop
Oh, and Chrono
isn't a book, but it is a story one reads. So yeah, I
really loved Chrono Trigger.
Shows: The current watch list is Parks and Recreation
, The Americans
, House of Cards
, The Good Wife
, and Legend of Korra.
That said, I don't actually have a TV, and I tend to just grab
episodes online to watch while I fold laundry or some such thing.
Appointment TV is not a concept for me.
Music: As far as music goes, I primarily listen to music when I
write software, and music with words tends to interfere with the
language part of my brain. Hence I've got hours upon hours of
soundtracks, which I listen to often. It makes movie watching fun,
when I can say: "this sounds like Howard Shore
" and be right. Also,
genius. You might not know the name but I guarantee you've heard
Beyond that, for any given genre, there's at least one song in it
that I enjoy.
Food: I like variety in my food. However most people notice I
consume lamb more than the typical American. I presume this is my
Greek heritage at work. Sushi is also pretty awesome. But honestly,
I'll try anything.
