Books - 1984, Stranger in a Strange Land, Any Dr. Seuss, Shell
Silverstein, The Way Things work, Fierce Invalids Home From Hot
Climates, and newly Sex at Dawn. Just read the Foundation Trilogy
and I am moving on to Brin's uplift series - good stuff. The Future
of the Mind is what I am halfway through right now. I can't get
enough about new brain science, futurology, AI, the singularity,
Movies - Amelie, Spirited Away, Me and You and Everyone We Know,
the 5th Element, Brazil, Léon: The Professional. As Aziz Ansari
said to all those who haven't seen the Dark Knight, "What the fuck
is wrong with you!"
Music - Varies a lot, but Vampire Weekend is my latest obsession.
Metric, Smashing Pumpkins, They Might Be Giants, Presidents, Regina
Spektor, Kimya Dawson, Magnetic Fields are defaults. I listen to a
lot of stuff though. KEXP treats me well. Current obsessions: Major
Lazer, Galimatias, and Nujabes.
Food - I am veg, but I like all types of foods with some specific
exceptions. French fries are my weakness, but a salad always sounds
good. I'll throw beer in this category as well. Beer is good. It is
hard to beat a good yellow curry.
