Architecture and Design:
Richard Neutra, Mies van der Rohe, Frank L Wright, Phillipe Starck and pretty much anything Julius Shulman took pics of. I studied under Karim Rashid for Industrial Design, so as you can tell, I'm a design, science and architecture nerd. I also love treehouses, handbuilt shelters made from trees, sticks and vines when I'm in the environment for them.
Movies and Shows:
Blade Runner, mostly anything by David Cronenberg, Stanley Kubrick, Andrew Niccol, Director Ridley Scott, although pretty much anything SciFi deserves a shot in my book. I loved The Royal Tenenbaums and Napoleon Dynamite, those types of movies, Take Me Home Tonight, Hot Tub Time Machine and most anything with John Cusak . Also, I'm a big fan of environmental films, post apocalyptic stories...kind of anything that talks about what would happen when the way we do things has passed the point of "has to stop" and it just does. Also, instructional type shows like cooking, do it your-selfer shows, building green and of course who doesn't wish they could switch places with Bear Grylls (I definitely would in a heartbeat!)
My listening preferences change often, but I like many artists and types: Miles Davis, Sade, Thievery Corporation, Mos Def, NAS, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, DeadMaus, MSTRKFT, Moby, Jazzanova, Goldfrapp, Concord Dawn, Aphrodite (d&b), Fred Everything, Maxxi Soundsystem, Guns and Roses, She Wants Revenge, Depeche Mode, Lily Allen, The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkle, recently rediscovered Paul Simon thanks to a friend...Salsa, Latin or Brazilian like Eve Medes, reggaeton, classical piano...yeah everything but barrel drum circus music (the kind they play at carnivals), thats just too creepy.
