I love learning new things, trying new things and doing new things. I don't really care about being cool, so hipsters beware!
I'm a music geek: I own too many CDs. I love Pink Floyd. And Stravinsky. And Prince. And other stuff, too.
I'm a sceptic. I dig Joseph Campbell.
I once wore sunglasses, rattled a Coke can and shouted "Money for the blind" while in my wheelchair when I was about ten. I was in a shopping centre parking lot. Some would argue that I haven't grown up since.
My goal for 2013 is to get some fiction published. (This is on top of my already busy schedule, of course.)
2. My charming wit and stunning good looks
3. My humility
Non-fiction favourites include things like Godel, Escher, Bach by Douglas Hofstadter and The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell.
Movies: Anything that's quirky without being too pretentious. The Big Lebowski, Brazil and Star Wars are all films I've seen countless times.
Music: I'm a rock kind of guy, mainly listening to progressive rock and New Wave. Favourite bands include Yes, Pink Floyd and The Cars.
TV: At the moment, my favourite shows are The Colbert Report, Breaking Bad, Futurama and Justified. My all-time favourite series, however, has to be Carl Sagan’s Cosmos.
Foods: the odd bit of Italian, Indian, Mexican, Thai or Russian usually suits me well.
2. friends: it goes without saying
3. music: I'm pretty much guaranteed to be listening to music at all hours
4. computer: I work in computer science, so...
5. books: anything geeky will do
6. movies: high-brow, low-brow, whatever.
I also think about the quickest path to becoming a supervillain. Alas, finding private funding for a doomsday device is not as easy as one would hope.
Or out on a killing spree.
Actually, that last part is a joke. I do my killing on Thursdays (but only after I do my laundry, of course).
