My favorite books so far are mainly food-related, but not cookbooks
(I can't follow a recipe). Right now, the favorites are Heat by
Bill Buford and The Tummy Trilogies by Calvin Trillin. Heat
documents Buford's time working for Mario Batali in his kitchen at
Babbo. The Tummy Trilogiesis a series of essays related to cooking
and eating. But I'm also a big fan of Ender's Game, the Jack
Reacher series, and a lot of non-fiction.
My favorite movies are Usual Suspects, Super Troopers, Blazing
Saddles, Ratatouille/Pixar in general, Zombieland, Shaun of the
Dead, Terminator 2, South Park Movie. Just saw True Grit, and it
was very good.
TV shows, well: M*A*S*H, Daily Show, Colbert Report, South Park,
Simpsons, Seinfeld, No Reservations, Bizarre Foods, Top Gear (UK
Version), Good Eats, Iron Chef America, Top Chef, Breaking Bad, The
Shield, Justified, Law and Order, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica and
Caprica, Jeopardy, The Office, 30 Rock.
As far as food, I'm pretty open. I love good ethnic foods such as
Thai, Indian, Japanese, and Vietnamese. but I'm also a a big fan of
a burger and fries, pasta, and sandwiches. But I'm not into or
interested in being a vegetarian. And I can't understand them,
