Books: I read a lot, ranging from the classics; History up to
1700's; Humor such as Tom Sharp, Tom Holt, Bill Bryson and Robert
Rankin. Also a lot of technical, science & engineering
Movies:I like a wide range of films, almost anything providing it
is not too pretentious, silly or childish. I hate inaccurate
historical films (that's most of them!) or anything deliberately
made to be 'controversial' ('human caterpillar'). I particularly
like Kurosawa's samurai films and some of the oriental epics,
Flying Daggers, Banquet, Hero etc are good but Crouching Tiger
crossed the boundary into 'silly' (kung fu can be a laugh but 'wire
fu' does nothing for me ).
Music: I have a wide taste, Classical, Trad Jazz and Blues being my
Food: mmm, I possibly like that too much, preferably simple homely
stuff (ham egg'n'chips) nothing too fancy.
TV: not had one for last 26 years! but I have been following
'Spooks' on iPlayer. Not really much else I want to see on the box.
