Actually, I learned the world doesn't need saving at all.
Now, I poke and prod people, sometimes set them on fire, and force them to drink nasty herbs. But everyone feels better after.
Appreciating movies, music and creativity, geeking out about random and quirky things, encouraging others, eating and drinking really well, 8-ball pool in bars, making tea, planning and implementing outrageous lifestyle scenarios, getting tickled pink.
Cooking yummy comfort food from my indigenous and adopted cultures (Taiwanese, Slovakian), acupressure massage, making friends and loved ones feel well-come, well-fed, and well-in-general.
music: Cat Power, Radiohead, Bob Dylan, Neko Case, Lauryn Hill, Rilo Kiley, Rolling Stones, Nina Simone, Alicia Keys, Belle & Sebastian, Arcade Fire, Joy Division, Tribe Called Quest, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and lots more.
Cinema: Movie slut. Definitely a child of Hollywood, and like things across the spectrum of low and high brow. Wong Kar Wai, Lee Ang, the Coen Brothers, Pedro Almodovar, and Charlie Kaufman are up there. Plus taiwanese filmmakers, Hou Hsiao Hsien, Edward Yang, etc.
Books: E. Annie Proulx (Brokeback Mountain, the Shipping News), Don Delillo (White Noise, Cosmopolis), Raymond Carver (What We Mean When We Talk About Love), Thomas Pynchon (the Crying of Lot 49), Elizabeth Gilbert (the Last American Man, Eat, Pray, Love), Hai Jin (Waiting), David Sedaris (Naked, Me Talk Pretty One Day), Zadie Smith (White Teeth), Jen Gish, Haruki Murakami (the Windup Bird Chronicle)
2. Love (all the joy, heartbreak, melodrama, and frustration of your larger communities, in easy take-home size!)
3. to kill/die for food and drink (the only reason i might support totalitarianism would be to enforce strict standards against incompetently made food)
4. Stories, written, sung, cinematic or otherwise
5. Moving my body (booty-shakin, yoga, running, hiking)
How to balance the need for service and (in a buddhist way) detachment from worldly needs and enjoying life free- and whole-heartedly.
Basically, I want to achieve transcendence, but in a highly profitable setting.
I also want to be less sarcastic ...
You really care about something, hopefully a lot of things, like, say ... other people around you, society, great art, health, you know, all the popular things to care about.
You appreciate where you came from.
You're an unrepentant hedonist.
You like to dream, chase, and CATCH big dreams.
