What I’m listening to: U2’s Songs of Innocence, because of the irony (after years of stealing U2’s music, I’m now getting it for free) and Calm.com when I need a few minutes to chillax. I love the free version of Spotify, because the ads remind me I am on earth – no matter how deep I go into the music.

What I’m reading: without pictures, Peter Thiel’s Zero to One. And with pictures, The Infinity Gauntlet by Jim Starlin and George Perez, preparing for all the Marvel cinematic excitement coming up in the next few years.

What I’m watching: I always look forward to seeing what news topics John Oliver skewers on Last Week Tonight. And I still love South Park. Also Bravest Warriors. I just saw Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and it was an amazing experience – part-movie and part-virtual reality.

What artists I’m following: I love the art on DrawCrowd.com and ArtStation.com – the digital art medium is so insane and so international. In the comics world, I love Arthur Adams, Frank Quitely and Paul Pope.

Where I’m surfing: ProductHunt.com is the coolest site right now, featuring a batch of userupvote sites and apps that will change your life. Plus a mix of TechinAsia.com, e27.co and TheBridge.jp for the latest tech and startup news from around Asia. And RocketNews24.com for all the latest crazy culture news from Japan and Asia.
