My "about" tab may be a little short on personality and long on lists. The questions tab is a better bet (unless you're just skimming for movie recommendations, of course); I usually browse "unacceptable answers" and "have explanations" there.
Learning the first 10% of a language.
Literature. My go-to literature is a $1 Shakespeare tome, the Atlantic and a short list of blogs. I haven't gotten much other normal reading done since starting grad school; and my liberal-arts undergrad education burned me out on books for a while there, too. It's picked up a little thanks to ebooks. Back when, I was a fan of Dostoyevsky, Saramago, Nietzsche, Gogol, Tennessee Williams and the rest.
Movies. Volver, Ratatouille, What about Bob?, Fanny and Alexander, Do the Right Thing, The Host/Goemul, Ran, Infernal Affairs and The Long Goodbye.
TV shows. Cowboy Bebop and The Wire are my favorites by a mile. Among current TV shows: Modern Family, Archer, Orange is the New Black, Peaky Blinders and Washington Week.
Radio shows. Marketplace, This American Life, Morning Becomes Eclectic and The World.
Music. Nirvana, Cee-lo Green, MF DOOM, Amy Winehouse, Janelle Monae, Moloko, Copy and Bonobo are tops. Beyond that, there's just Flamenco and anything in Portuguese (like Fado and MPB). I find new music on KCRW. In rotation now: Meg Myers, Camarón de la Isla.
Food. The less processed it is, the better. Indian/Himalayan food is my favorite, though Greek is also up there. Also: dumplings from all around the world.
Sports. I like running, downhill skiing, backpacking and kayaking. I ran a single marathon (very slowly) and went on several longish backpacking trips back in the day. I hope to get around to doing that sort of thing again soon, and have long planned to try out similar stuff (trail running, orienteering). I'd like to learn how to swim better for exercise, but the university's swimming courses seem to fill up awfully quickly.
I'll enjoy watching a game now and then, but I've never invested in following players or grown attached to a team. I watch The Voice and think that's got same idea, marketing-wise. See, I understand sports!
I also like board games, especially the abstract ones. Here's a reference because a couple of people have asked: http://www.di.fc.ul.pt/~jpn/gv/
Comedy. If you have read this far, I suggest you check out @markleidner, @rolldiggity, @DemetriMartin and @Jeffely on Twitter. Good stuff, I say.
If your taste matches mine, recommend stuff. Anyone who counts more than one thing above among his/her favorites is my kind of people to a first approximation.
If you ever use the word "fraught," please reconsider before speaking, writing, thinking or living any further. Unless you're Ira Glass.
