Update: 29 and getting older, still have a big head. Some of the hairs are now gray, but it's the same amount of hairs as 3 years ago, so that's good.
Movies: Inception; Fifth Element, Bourne Trilogy, 50/50, Apocalypse Now, Black Hawk Down, Animal House, Batman/Dark Knight Trilogy, Lord of the Rings, The Aviator, The Departed, Captain America, Crank
Books: Mostly either political science, or science fiction. Political science fiction is at the apex of the two genres. Which means that I like Alistair Reynolds, Frank Herbert, and Kim Stanley Robinson a lot. Besides that - Tolkien, Stanislaw Lem, Arthur C. Clarke, Joe Haldeman, Frederick Pohl, Ben Bova, Stephen Baxter, Neal Stephenson, etc. Beyond this I read a ton of academic works, authors of which I won't bother with.
TV: The Wire, Sunny, Top Gear.
