I love sci-fi and fantasy. My favorite books are His Dark
Materials, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, Snow Crash,
Cryptonomicon, Naked Lunch, Ender's Game, and Blood Meridian. I
usually have a couple books going. Right now it's The Last Unicorn
and Consider Phlebas. I'm also a comic book reader.

movies are Blade Runner (this movie has had a scary amount of
influence on my life), 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Shining,
Mulholland Drive, Inland Empire, Blue Velvet, Stalker, Solaris,
Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Alien, Aliens, Star Wars, Indian
Jones, LOTR, Apocalypse Now, Brazil, Persona, Tree of Life, Dancer
in the Dark, Scott Pilgrim, The Fountain, Kurosawa, Korean cinema.
I really love everything from popcorn flicks to foreign to indie.
I'm currently trying to make my way through the Criterion
Collection on Hulu. I recently saw Before Midnight and Upstream
Color, which both floored me. I like film a lot.

Americans, Orphan Black, Downton Abbey, Sherlock, Parenthood, New
Girl, Louie, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and of course

watcher. My favorites are Neon Genesis Evangelion, Cowboy Bebop,
