Books - many genres and authors, mostly SciFi and humor. A
representative (but by no means exhaustive!) selection: Terry
Pratchett, Connie Willis, Greg Egan, Robert Heinlein, Douglas
Hofstadter, Philip Pullman, Neal Stephenson, and of course the
Harry Potter series. Also, Shakespeare. He's just amazing.
Music - that's perhaps the only thing I love more than books.
People tell me I've got the weirdest playlist in the world, and I
sure try to keep it that way!
Some of the things I like are:
* Old rock and pop- from ABBA to Queen, from The Beatles to Elton
John, from Aqua to Mireille Mathieu, from Meat Loaf to Pink
* Metal - Nightwish, Stratovarius, Galneryus, and especially Trans
* Instrumental - Bond, Keiko Matsui, Philip Glass, and lots and
lots of classical music that I keep constantly discovering for
myself on Youtube.
* Crossover - Il Divo, Michael Crawford and especially Sarah
Brightman, whose voice just hypnotises me.
I'm not really a movie person; usually I just watch them for my
favorite actors. For stories I prefer TV shows: Doctor Who, Castle,
Boston Legal, Sherlock and sitcoms, mostly the old British ones.
The best shows I have ever seen are Firefly, Life on Mars, Ashes to
Ashes and Homicide: Life On The Streets.
Food, now; I don't have any special preferences, as long as it's
Kosher. Yes, I am not religious, but I eat Kosher because... ask me
