I'm quite an avid gamer, particularly fond of pen&paper RPGs (recently leaning more toward the Burning Wheel than D&D, European-style board games (e.g. Settlers of Catan, Puerto Rico, Tigris & Euphrates), and card games (Fluxx, Illuminati, Dominion, for example)
Also, Five tons of flax.
I'm training in Ed Parker's American Kenpo, and recently attained the rank of Black Belt.
These days, it's more the beard.
Neal Stephenson - The Diamond Age,
Douglas Adams - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (and attendant trilogy),
Brian Greene - The Elegant Universe
I'd really like to get my hands on and read/work through Knuth's The Art of Computer Programming. I'm actually annoyed that I haven't in my... many years of CS study.
Accelerando by Charles Stross.
Scott Lynch - The Lies of Locke Lamora.
Transformers: The Movie,
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy,
Princess Mononoke (or Mononoke Hime for the purists),
Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado as presented by the Stratford Festival.
The Mechanical Universe (And Beyond) - I grew up watching this on PBS.
Pretty much any Transformers show, though the best have been Beast Wars and Animated. We'll see how Prime goes, but it's shaping up pretty well.
Avatar: the Last Airbender - The show is a masterpiece. The movie was a pale mockery.
Batman: The Brave and the Bold
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.
I've been listening a lot to the Homestuck soundtrack albums, after picking up the lot after the 4/13 update.
Schandmaul, Juno Reactor, The Prodigy, Aphex Twin, The Real McKenzies, Trent Reznor's instrumental work.
Soundtracks from Xenogears, Chrono Trigger, Tales of Phantasia
Beethoven (especially the 9th Symphony, as directed by John Gardiner) //Yes, I'm enough of a nerd to have a favorite recording.
Jazz bagpipes, acoustic zydeco speed metal, and Latvian nostril chant.
Pretty much anything skillfully performed/composed, where the lyrics don't dominate.
Indian (especially Lassis), Sushi, Haggis, Chicago-style deep-dish pizza (See Edwardo's for
Abusing evolutionary design algorithms.
How to get the super-mouse gene added to my genetic code, and how to do a recompile thereafter.
I no longer live in the utter boonies, so I'm a little less isolated than I was, but I could definitely stand to have a few more local connections; people to play games with would be good.
I've also completely forgotten everything I learned in Russian. I suppose that's a given, what with the lack of practice, and the fact that I'd started when I was 23.
I'm horrible at DDR-type games. (I still dance well, though. (at least, last time I checked.))
I'm down with entropy.
Also, if you don't smoke. I've got really sensitive olfactory processors.
