Like my taste in movies, I have a pretty eclectic range of TV show
interests. I'm a big fan of a bunch of good-quality, pop culture
phenomena, such as "Game of Thrones", "Breaking Bad", "Downton
Abbey", "Misfits", etc. And BBC-America is a go-to channel 80% of
the time I'm not on Netflix or Hulu. (Yes, I'm a Whovian. Long live
I have a VERY diverse taste when it comes to music - I love, love,
love the 'down & dirty' of Howlin' Wolf's growl and the
emotive, roller coaster-like flights of songs from Iron & Wine
and Jeff Buckley -- i.e. "Spoonful", "300 Pounds of Joy", "The
Trapeze Artist", "Hallelujah", "Lover, You Should Have Come Over",
plus, TONS more! Rufus Wainwright, Ben Gibbard & Sam Beam can
do no wrong by me.
Seafood is still my first love, especially crustaceans. And, I stay
as far away from processed foods as I can. As for cuisine, I love
just about any type of Asian -- Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese (Pho!),
Chinese... I'm not usually a big fan of Indian food, but LOVE
Afghani, Lebanese, Turkish, and Moroccan. The absolute best meals
I've had so far were Italian-based (there & here). On the other
hand, I love dishes from ALL over the world, just don't try to kill
my tastebuds with too much spicy heat. I like to revel in taste and
texture without necessarily crying over it.
And, sweets! I’ve got a killer sweet tooth for chocolate,
raspberries, caramel, marshmallows, toasted coconut, etc., etc.,
etc…. My favorite indulgence these days is Crepe Amour in Vienna.
