Personal interests

– – – – – – – – –

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

soccer (playing and watching; a fan of FC Bayern Munich: here), swimming (started at the age of 6), jogging/running (preferably outdoor; aiming for a half marathon), golf (a VERY beginner), talk show by Conan O’Brien (from Late Night through Tonight Show to Conan: here), Rocky (my favorite is Rocky II), Star Wars (I mean who doesn’t?: here), DC comics (Flash, obviously: here), Japanese comics (my recent favorite is Vagabond by Takehiko Inoue), novels (digging famous ones), American TV shows (Silicon Valley, the Office, Flash, Supergirl, etc.), Japanese TV shows (too many to list, but Toshiaki Karasawa is definitely my favorite, especially in 白い巨塔 “Great White Tower”), The Beach Boys (album Pet Sounds), Shogo Hamada (album Edge of the Knife: here), Tatsuro Yamashita (album Big Wave or Melodies: here)  – I’m sure there are other things to be added, but I think I made my point.
