I like things beautiful, emotional, and just a little bit
I am a huge bibliophile and I am a big cinemaphile, although I
probably don't know as much about movies as I like to think I do...
I like anything well-made, where they pay attention to making
something of substance (although I do love early John Waters, too),
not these big blockbusters or no-soul remakes that try and 'update'
a well-made film. I like to be moved and I always love when a film
has me asking more questions at the end than at the start. (Also: I
don't hate the blockbusters or popular movies. They just aren't my
usual diet. Believe me, I love Bridesmaids and that awful Clash of
the Titans remake as much as I love Melancholia,
Dogville/Manderlay, and The Color of Pomegranates...)
Ok, here we go:
Classical music: Bach, Puccini,

Chopin.... Other music: The Beatles, Roisin Murphy, Tori
Bjork, Phoenix, ABBA, The Faint, Sigur Ros, Radiohead, Brian Eno,
Blondie, Boards of Canada, Massive Attack, Matmos...
Books? Almost anything.
Nonfiction has just as much of a place on my bookshelf as
Movies: intellectual, dark, funny and sometimes a bit sad...
Horror, Lars von Trier, weird Bollywood, Paul Thomas Anderson, John
Waters, Sam Mendes, classics, crappy horror films....
Tv: Six Feet Under, House of Cards, Breaking Bad, Nurse Jackie, and
Supernatural. Dear god yes Supernatural. Team Dean all the
Food: food. I love it, and all kinds - Chicken Pasanda or miso soup
or Moo Goo Gai Pan or cassoulet or a nice good old-fashioned bacon
cheeseburger - but oddly enough, I'm picky in a very arbitrary way.
I'm not a big drinker, but I do love a glass of wine now and then
(I worked at a Washington State winery for three years) and won't
say no to a nice Gin and Tonic. Not really into beer, but am open
minded - wanna teach me? ;-)
