I've spent now most of my time in academic research, growing cells and making proteins, staining tissues, almost all of it glowing.
I like nerdy things but not the obsessive nerd culture that goes with them.
Once I get back to regular swimming I'll probably have a whiff of chlorine about me all the time from the pool...
I fucking love plaid.
John Vanderslice, Blonde Redhead, Pavement, Modest Mouse (old, none of the new stuff) Dirty Projectors, Sonic Youth, Pinback, Yo La Tengo, The Handsome Family, Neutral Milk Hotel, Bill Callahan, Radiohead, DEVO.
Recently got sucked into the Foundation trilogy, and I've always had a soft spot for Philip K Dick. Hell, I might as well list the sci fi standards here (Enders Game, Dune, Stranger in a Strange Land, H.P. Lovecraft). 100 Years of Solitude, Grapes of Wrath, bunch of other stuff I was fortunate enough to have been assigned in high school. Slaughterhouse 5, Metamorphosis. I recently decided to read Moby Dick and HOLY SHIT!
And pie. Specifically Hoosier Mama Pie Company pies, so sad to see them go in Chicago.
Toothbrush and toothpaste,
Something to occupy my mind,
The scientific method
I'm not about to spend money for this a-list thing, so I won't see who you are if you click like.
