Music: these days mostly funk jazz, downtempo electronica and of
course Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Show. I'm also a fan of
mainstream 80s and 90s rock and (mostly British) pop, with
occasional diversions into punk, classical, ambiental, chill.
Movies: Gattaca, Ondskan, City of God, Tropa de Elite (1 & 2),
In Bruges, etc. I adore movies and watch crazy amounts of them,
can't really list all the good ones here!
TV Shows: Arrested Development, The Big Bang Theory, Game Of
Thrones, Mad Men, How I Met Your Mother, Top Gear. Oh and BBC's
"Rome" - none of the people I met in US have seen that one, and I
think everybody should - it's probably the best TV series I have
Book: Arthur C. Clarke - Childhood's End. Some atheist propaganda.
Technical books. I should read more.
Food: Chipotle barbacoa bowl, Vietnamese Pho soup, baklava. Greek
feta and olives and bread and salt. Kefir! Beef steak, lamb leg,
pork tenderloin - yes please. Grain salad on a bed of shredded
cabbage from Trader Joe's? Any time of day. In fact, I'd probably
take half of Trader Joe's items any time of day. ABC Trek Mix
especially. Kimchi is my new-found love.
