Music - It is quite cliched, but I consider my taste to be pretty
eclectic. I am pretty open minded, and I am a proud fan of Coldplay
- no matter what my friends may say, those boys know how to make
great songs, and there is nothing quite as spectacular as their
live shows. This isn't to say that I don't have quite a varied
& I think good taste in music, should you hate them! So a few
others I like include... The National, Stars, Mumford & Sons,
Stornoway, Beirut, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Jeff Buckly, Tom McRae, Gogol
Bordello, Bon Iver, Arcade Fire, Pheonix, Sigur Ros, Florence, Sia,
First Aid Kit, Camara Obscura, Passion Pit and if you would like an
incredibly guilty pleasure Tinie Tempah and some other very random
stuff I wouldn't admit!
TV - I love a bit of 24... Jack Bauer - what a hero. Now that he is
no more, along with Tony Soprano and I'm a bit behind as everyone
else seems to have already seen them. I'm trying to catch up with
Homeland, Breaking Bad & The Wire. I also watch a lot of
comedy, and I particularly like Peep Show, Family Guy, Big Bang
Theory and Fresh Meat.
Film - This is a tricky one, but some films I think are fantastic
include; True Romance, Shawshank Redemption, The Usual Suspects,
American Beauty, Pulp Fiction, City of God, Road to Perdition, The
Godfather I & II and Man on Fire (which very few people agree
with me on).
When it comes to food, I am a bit of seafood connoisseur and this
had led me to becoming one of the best paella chefs around (well,
maybe not, but I have had some practice). I also don't think you
can go wrong with Italian or tapas.
I like meat, and have been searching for a place that does one of
those 'if you eat this steak you can have it for free' like you see
in the movies, but I have yet to find one - if anyone knows where I
can do this, I would be delighted, though it would probably be the
most un-romantic dinner date ever! Unless you are impressed by a
man's capacity to eat a massive steak!
