My favorite books; I've always got a couple on the bedside table but finding the time to read them... I've always had a thing for crime fiction - Elmore Leonard, Raymond Chandler, etc. Other favs include "the Russians" (Gogol, Pushkin, et al.), Joseph Heller, Tim Winton, Peter Carey, Joseph Conrad, Kafka, Ursula K Leguin.
My favorite movies and TV; Always a sucker for musical biopics, so 24 hr Party People, Some Kind of Monster, Dig, etc. Others that spring to mind include Lost in Translation; House of Sand & Fog; Lantana; Mystic River; The Good, Bad & Ugly; Donny Darko; plus plenty of others. Good TV - QI, The Trip, The Office, Grand Designs, Shameless
Food; love going out to nice restaurants/bars for dinner or coffee. Some of my usual haunts are Hu-tong, China Red (love that touch-screening ordering system), Movida, Bar Lourinha, Cabinet, Robbie Burns Hotel, Napier Hotel and Mario's (amongst many others). or for coffee, Padre, St Ali, Seven Seeds, etc. Always keen to try new tastes!
