Seriously, though: computational neuroscience at the faculty of philosophy.
It has also been said that my back rubs are pretty good.
Also, I have long hair. Circular it is not, but all the more obvious.
Books, poetry: Bloem, Bukowski, Marsman, Slauerhoff again.
Movies: The Matrix, American Beauty, Solaris, Donnie Darko, Million Dollar Hotel, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, No Way Out, Control, Fight Club, Gattaca, Festen, Syriana, Sunshine, Black Swan.
Oh, don't get me started.
In particular order: the Cure, Nine Inch Nails, Oceansize, Tool, Deftones, Katatonia, Killing Joke, Marillion (with Fish), ISIS (the Los Angeles post-metal one), Curve, Underworld, Soundgarden, Faith No More, Piano Magic, Depeche Mode, Massive Attack, Type O Negative, PJ Harvey and quite a few more.
I love music. I consider it the shortcut to my heart.
Current fads: Drone and doom-jazz. Think Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble and their drone-incarnation Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation, Sunn O))), Bohren & der Club of Gore. Perhaps ISIS also counts.
TV shows: Californication, Game of Thones (the books are cool, and the TV series is an awesome rendition), Firefly, Deadwood, and House. Recently discovered The Wire and loved it.
Food: Hmmm, food. Let me cook for you! I have references.
I limit the amount of meat I eat, and probably should (yet too rarely do) limit myself to 'biologically raised' animal flesh. Still, militant dietism of any kind makes me sad.
Insisting on lots of meat makes you environmentally and morally short-sighted.
Being strict in the tenets of some kind of vegetarianism makes you dogmatic. Where do you draw the line? Why is it OK to keep cows in slavery for their milk but not for their flesh, and why do you avoid eating cows but not nematodes?
Finally, in my culinary experience, vegans make for unpleasant culinary contortions if one wants to eat a varied, healthy, supplement-less, tasty diet. Which I do.
...and yet I remain. Embarrassing.
