Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books: Anything with great English usage. Formerly Russian and
other classics in English, Terry Pratchett's Disc World series for
its humor. Stories with a strong human side. Mostly software study
Music: Pretty flexible. I enjoy seeing what you like. As for my own
taste, lately, for everyday around the house and working; Everlast,
Plush, Alice in Chains, Nirvana, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Santana. For
romantic, easy listening; Carla Bruni is great (I feel like I'm in
a French Villa when I listen to her,) and lots of other
possibilities. For reading, or deep relaxing; classical crossover
vocals, classical guitar, some opera with emphasis on female
vocals. Country, folk, oldies, offbeat stuff, all ok. Not into
metal nor the nastier hiphop. Not that into classic rock any
Fav Movies: Forest Gump, Good Will Hunting, Rounders. Movies based
on true stories. Dramas. Intrigue.
TV: I have a smart TV with internet only; Hulu, Amazon, Netflix,
TED talks. Watch sporadically. Favorites are some of the epic
series; The Badge, Breaking Bad, Orange is the new black.
Social/competition shows; Survivor, Master Chef.
