I do enjoy considering a complex issue in the context of respectful discussion, regardless of what the topic might be
Filling in forms. Taking photos. Talking about things I know little about with people who know a lot about them.
Books- sci-fi & fantasy stories, although I'm a but fussy. I prefer the fantastic elements of the story to serve a narrative purpose, rather than a shoot-em-up with swords or lazers. Authors like Katherine Kerr, George RR Martin, JRRT, ursula le guin, China Miéville, Phillip Pullman, Phillip K Dick
Philosophy & science are another favourite subject, Richard Dawkins, Brian Greene, Daniel Kahneman...
Classics- authors like Woodehouse, Joseph Conrad, Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde, Steinbeck,
I read some Australian fiction as well, I really dig Tim Winton, John Birmingham & the Black Inc short story compilations.
I listen to Radio National often. It's better than you think it is. Otherwise, BBC radio4, tripleJ, Koori radio, FBi...
Movies: until recently, anything Woody Allen before h̶i̶s̶ ̶i̶n̶n̶o̶c̶e̶n̶c̶e̶ ̶g̶o̶t̶ ̶l̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶c̶l̶e̶a̶r̶ I figured out he may make interesting movies but he may be one of the worst humans alive.
Recently I've watched Moon, Cloud Atlas. Genres- dystopian cyberpunk, indie comedy.. I tend to avoid overly confronting films because i do confronting stuff all day at work.
TV: classics like Black Books, Monty Python... I watch Carl Sagan's Cosmos often. I'm ambivalent about Game of Thrones- a great story yet maybe too heavy for a weekly TV show.
Comics: Oglaf, xkcd, I used to enjoy the walking dead but issue 100 killed it for me
music: against me!, Bruce Springsteen, Chumbawamba, the Beards (yes- how many different ways can you sing about beards? Not enough!) , billy Bragg, Amanda palmer/Dresden dolls, the herd, the Levellers,nick cave, nina simone, nofx, Paul Dempsey, Patrick Wolf, Paul Kelly, refused, rocket science, tism, Tom waits, Tim Minchin, the whitlams

If you took away one or two, I'd be drawing on the others a lot more. Take away all six? A total mindfuck.
Going back to visit Damascus, if there is anything left.
