Biographies (just finished Alan Cumming's bio of growing up on a
Scotish farm, a marvelous read), books on history, whatever catches
my interest. Fascinated with the work of Malcolm Gladwell...
everyone should read his 'David & Goliath'.
I love movies - a bit of everything. Favorites include Birdman,
Whiplash, The King's Speech, It Happened One Night, Inception,
Hotel Budapest, LA Confidential, The Descendants, Hugo, White
Palace, Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (the Swedish original version),
Paris je t'aime, Good Fellas, Charlie Chaplin's At The Circus, The
Best Years of Our Lives, The Quiet Man, The Searchers, Network, La
Cage aux Folles, The Wild Bunch, The Big Country, Strangers On a
Train, Spirited Away, Akira, and Seven Samurai. Music for me is
Bach to Beatles. Springsteen, Lady Gaga, 60s & 70s rock, Scott
Joplin rags, Saint-Saens, Bowie, Elvis, Creedence, ELO, and Randy
Love John Oliver & Bill Maher (I wish Jon Stewart hadn't
retired); among my favorite TV shows - Mad Men, Better Call Saul,
and Game of Thrones. The Turner Classic Movies channel. NPR radio -
love Terri Gross' Fresh Air interviews and Garrison Keillor.
Food... I'm a vegetarian who still eats lots of other things -
Thai, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, and seafood. If you'd like to have
a hamburger or steak, go right ahead, that's fine with me.
