I'm originally from the US, and I'm here doing a PhD in philosophy.
I'm a massive geek. Mainly for music, political zines, vinyl, scifi/fantasy, and philosophy, but if I can get into it, I'll gladly geek out over it.
I'm a really avid reader. I'm a certified news junkie but otherwise I mainly read books/zines/articles/blogs about racism, sexism, capitalism. You know, the terrible things about the world.
I'm polyamorous, which means I think it's possible to love more than one person at a time
I can't ride a bike (please don't laugh)
I'm always looking for new bands to check out, and I'm I've got a couple of projects in the works myself. Other than that I've started working on writing a couple of zines and I'm working on a stand up act to try out sometime, but god knows if I'll ever finish any of that. I'd love to start organising discussion/reading groups, but I don't actually know enough people who'd be interested so that's probably not going to happen anytime soon
Books: If I had to pick, the two most important book to me are David Lewis's On the Plurality of Worlds and Martha Nussbaum's Frontiers of Justice. Two books that have had a big impact on me lately though are Sober Living for the Revolution: Hardcore Punk, Straight Edge, and Radical Politics, and The Revolution Starts at Home: Confronting Intimate Violence in activist Communities
Movies: I absolutely love documentaries, but other movies I really love are Clerks, Punishment Park, Full Metal Jacket, Airplane!, American History X, District 9, This is England, Children of Men, La Haine, Die Welle, Paper Heart, Young Frankenstein, and the original Star Wars Trilogy
Shows: Totally Biased (Now canceled, but it was amazing), Bob's Burgers, Louie, Futurama, Daria, Adventure Time, The Venture Bros., The Daily Show, Firefly, Game of Thrones, The Boondocks, Flight of the Concords, Parks and Recreation, Everybody Hates Chris, Ghost in the Shell, Chapelle's Show, Ergo Proxy, The Richord Pryor Show
Food: all of it
Kyriarchy and what to do about it.
What I'm going to make for dinner, because it's not all politics and philosophy all the time
