Personal interests

My mind is mostly revolving around academics, life, or these things (no particular order):

  • soccer (playing and watching; a FC Bayern Munich fan: here)
  • birding (novice – my eBird profile here or here)
  • talk show by Conan O’Brien (from Late Night through Tonight Show to Conan: here)
  • Rocky saga
  • Japanese comics (recently, Parasyte by Akihito Iwaaki, Vagabond by Takehiko Inoue)
  • American TV shows (e.g., Silicon Valley: s2e10 “Two Days of the Condor”; Flash: s2e21 “The Runaway Dinosaur”;  Supergirl: s1e2 “Stronger Together”)
  • video games (recent favorites: Detroit: Become Human, Ryu Ga Gotoku)
  • The Beach Boys (album Pet Sounds)
  • Shogo Hamada (album Edge of the Knife: here)
  • Tatsuro Yamashita (album Big Wave or Moonglow: here

– I’m sure there are other things to be added, but I think I made my point.
