I wasn't much of a recreational reader until recently. I have
enjoyed novels by Tom Robbins and John Grisham, and also enjoy the
classics and war novels based on true events. I also enjoy reading
the New York Times or Time Magazine and following NPR.
As for movies, I'm a big action buff but I also like a good
think-piece. American Beauty and Good Will Hunting are always
appreciated, but on a completely different note I enjoy most
comedies as well as nearly all the ridiculous Jean Claude Van Damme
My music list goes on and on and on (like most people), but I have
always enjoyed classical music - especially piano concertos and
etudes. I'm also into ambient electronic music and rock as well as
folk, jazz, and a fair amount of pop. My current listening often
includes Bonobo, The Cinematic Orchestra, Boards of Canada, Patrick
Watson, Incubus, Sigur Ros, and Keane. What's funny is my first
album as a kid was Fine Young Cannibals "She Drives Me Crazy"
followed up shortly by the music of The Prodigy. In summary, my
music taste is all over the place!
When it comes to food, what's not to like? If you put it in front
of me, I will enjoy eating it - unless its custard or mayonnaise.
If I have to pick one, though, I'm currently pretty hooked on sushi
and Italian food.
