If on a winter's night a traveler. The Diamond Age. The Design of
Everyday Things, The Wealth of Nations, A Brief History of Time,
The Republic, The Fountainhead*, Love in the Time of Cholera, The
Road, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, lots of Isaac Asimov and
Philip K. Dick.
Typical action/sci-fi/drama/comedy blockbusters mostly. I have a
soft spot for Jim Carey films though.
TV: Sherlock, Suits, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Top Gear, Star Trek:
TNG, Documentaries, The Simpsons (Seasons 3-9), The IT Crowd. I was
really impressed with the latest series of Cosmos on Fox.
Theatre: Les Miserables, Carousel, The 39 Steps, The Book of
Pop, Classical (esp. Beethoven's 6th and Mahler's 5th), 90's/00's
I do like somewhat folksy/alt. female singers: Florence + the
Machine, Metric, Birdy, Feist, Ellie Goulding, A Fine Frenzy, La
Roux. I'm also a bit ashamed to say I'm really digging the album by
Noodles. Schwartz's smoked meat in Montreal. The chocolate pecan
caramel pie at A La Mode here in Seattle. Also trying new stuff;
pretty much a well made anything has it's appeal.
