Movies: I run the gamut between soppily romantic, unbelieveably
geeky, and just plain weird. Here's a few examples: 1.)The Phantom
of the Opera.
The mask is such a turn on... But I prefer the
new 25th Anniversary stage show to the movie.Gettysburg
ties for number 1-
especially for the month leading up to those three days in July
when the Holy Land is Central Pennsylvania. Otherwise I have an
eclectic taste in movies; from Harry Potter to Dogma to Elizabeth
to Indiana Jones. I like the Muppet Movie, but my favorite song
from it is "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday" not "Rainbow
Connection." I'm also fond of the SKY adaptations of Discworld
(Loved Going Postal).
Books 1.)Essentially more of the same- though I'm also addicted to
' mystery novels and the Terry Pratchett Discworld
series, as well as
Susan Cooper's The Dark Is Rising
. I enjoy
fantasy that incorporates mythology (I prefer Welsh) and I'm very
picky about what I read: I consider the Harry Potter series to be
well-written and entertaining; and Twilight is frankly a hack job.
Severus Snape and Sam Vimes are my favorite male characters of all
time, if that tells you anything. I have been known to stay up all
night reading medieval poetry and can quote many and varied authors
of both poetry and prose from Dorothy Parker to Richard Lovelace.
When I say that I am a geek- I mean that I am mostly a Lit
Music: Broadway musicals and instrumentals are the fav for
listening to.- And despite the fact that the movie was aggravating
in the extreme, there are redeemable parts of Gods & Generals-
namely the soundtrack. The Irish Brigade
's charge up Marye's
Heights and the lonesome sound of Paddy Maloney playing uileann
pipes for starters. Beyond that- anything pretty much of Celtic
Scottish, etc.) extraction. Mary Fahl, ect. My favorite band is
Saving Jane, but I'll pretty much listen to whatever is on the
radio, provided the musicians actually sing.
Foods- Like with just about everything else; my tastes (literally)
are eclectic; I enjoy Italian, Mexican and Chinese. Though Welsh
lamb has been a big fav for the past five years. I love that you
can get all sorts of fresh fruits and veggies during the summer
months- my favs are black raspberries and black currants... you
can't get them in stores around here.
My fav TV shows are Dr. Who
, and I've recently been
re-watching all seven seasons of Buffy
... when it was first on, I used to
have an enormous crush on the character of Spike... still rather
do, point of fact. I like TV that is well-written and witty, so
favorites tend to be few and far between.
