Honestly, I just love movies. All of them. I’ll watch pretty much
anything, from anywhere in the world and filmed in any year, and
manage to enjoy something about it. It’s probably easier and more
useful to list what I dislike: Brick (Come on, seriously...);
Nicole Kidman (nothing personal... though The Hours was good);
anything M Night Shayamlananaman has done after Unbreakable; the US
remake of Taxi with Queen Latifah (but I think Queen Latifah is
awesome so I forgive her); The Chronociles of Narnia films (Not the
old cartoons); Episodes I-III of Star Wars.
SHOWS: The Wire; The Sopranos; Psych; The Killing;
Arrested Development; The Biog Bang Theory; Seinfeld; Curb Your
Enthusiasm; The Inbetweeners; Fmaily Guy; South Park... oh and I
think Murder, She Wrote is pretty awesome too.
MUSIC: I listen to all kinds of stuff, depending
on my mood and what I'm into at the time... I listen to a lot of
Hip Hop (Including BIG, Mos Def, Jay Z, Mobb Deep, Immortal
Technique...), a lot of older stuff like Rolling Stones, Jimi
Hendrix, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Johnny Cash, James Taylor... some
awesome 70s tunes... being Italian I like a bit of commercial house
by default (strictly for dancing purposes) and stuff like
Roykssop... oh, and I really like opera too!
FOOD: Pretty much all of it. Obviously Italian
would be my favourite, but I also really enjoy Thai, Chinese,
Japanese, Mexican, American, Spanish, Greek and North Korean food.
Ok, fine, I lied, I've never had North Korean Food...
