Books - I've got a bunch of books about Buddhist
philosophy I've been working my way through. I grew up reading
fantasy but over the past few years I mostly enjoy reading anything
non-fiction - a lot of research publication journals, news
articles, and books about science.
Movies - I'm about as far from a movie buff as a
person can get. I can definitely enjoy a movie with someone but if
you're passionate about film I don't have a whole lot to offer. I'm
more interested in the process behind movie-making than I am
enjoying film as a spectator. Over the years I've acquired a little
collection of: hand-to-hand combat movies, old-school/low-budget
horror/gore movies, and stand-up comedy (I love stand-up)
Shows - I haven't had cable television for awhile.
I grew up watching the food network; I love
cooking/artisan/educational stuff. Recently I was obsessed with
"Scare Tactics" for like a week and downloaded all the
Music - Hip-Hop is definitely a huge passion of
mine. Back in high school I listened to a ton of
metal/post-hardcore/grindcore/deathcore music but not so much
anymore. I just re-discovered Pandora like last week and have been
playing the "Smooth Jazz", "Trap" and "Chill Out" stations...so I
guess I'm expanding from the 'hip-hop only' mindset I've had for
the past 7 or so years.
Food - I love all of it, seriously, except sushi.
It seems like every year I try to like sushi but there's
just something about the fishy/seaweed taste of authentic sushi
that I can't dig.
