-House of Cards.
I'm an engineering graduate student. I currently spend my free time rock climbing and playing board games. I write for a progressive publication.
I believe the purpose of science is to make the world better than it was when we got here. I believe that the right to self-determination is the fundamental human right. We determine what our lives mean.
I read sometimes.
My research involves working with human blood.
Books: Lamb, The End of Poverty, Stranger in a Strange Land
Comic Books: Nightly News, Sandman, Transmetropolitan
Music: Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack, Sigur Ros, The Decemberists, Garfunkel and Oates, Cloud Cult
(Little obsessed with Light Chasers right now.)
Food: Right now I'm in the mood for korma curry. I enjoy cooking more and more as time goes by. I make a pretty nice spinach and sausage lasagna. I bake as well. I like cooking without a recipe.
Podcasts: This American Life, FilmSack, Citizen Radio, Hardcore History
Movies: Garden State, Away We Go, Primer, The Man from Earth, Kick-Ass, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer. Scott Pilgrim was amazing. Fog of War may be my actual favorite movie. Everyone loves hearing about war crimes!
I also enjoy bad movies, especially bad sci-fi and action. <3 Netflix
