Books: all the works from George Simenon, Leo Malet, Fréderic
"Sanantonio" Dard, Daniel Pennac, Andrea Camilleri, David Weber's
Honorverse (a bit on the right side of political spectrum for me,
but I like the characters... and Weber is redeeming his french
revolution expies in late books).
Porco Rosso ( by Hayao Miyazaki / Studio Ghibli),
But I'm a Cheerleader,
Back to the future.
BattleStar Galactica Reimagined,
Il commissario Montalbano,
I don't have a television antenna, or rather I never switch the DVB
on, so I usually download things from the net. It takes its time,
but I can chose stuff from the last thirty years of western
entertainment, with the ads removed . It's nice.
Music: I can't bear techno, dance, rap or any kind of music that
requires you to either be stoned or high to be appreciated...
usually, I restrict myself to some Classical, jazz/Cabaret, Rock
