I love movies and see a lot of them-Old, new, from sappy date
movies to a brainless special FX summer blockbusters. If pushed for
a simple answer the movies I love best are indy films and the
classics, especially noir. Favorite directors-Kurasawa, Orson
Welles, Scorsese, Stanley Kubrick, Tarantino, Wes Anderson, Hiyao
Miyazaki, and absolutely everything made by the Coen Brothers. My
favorite films that come to mind-Chinatown, Wings of Desire, Fight
Club, Oh Brother Where Art Thou, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless
Mind, V for Vendetta, Avatar.
I like alternative music, and have a soft spot for some of the 80s
punk and new wave stuff. My palette is pretty broad and goes way
back to classical music, 20th century big band and jazz, and
proceeds into today attempt to stay current (Dr Dogg, Mumford and
Sons, Darwin Deez are recent Ipod additions). My radio dial never
really strays from NPR. I am well read, but don't read nearly as
much these days as I did historically. Mostly I think, because I
read and write all day on the job and am looking to balance that
out at night. When I read, I read a lot of mystery (Steven King,
Dean Koontz), sci fi/fantasy (Gaiman, Dune and Lord of the Rings
series) and silly stuff (like Tom Robbins). Recent books include
The Passage by Justin Cronin, Lady Chatterly's Lover, and Sex at
As for food-I have pretty broad palette for good food, which is one
of the reasons I love the bay area. Sushi is high on the list. I
love a lot of international food. Fruits and veggies that come from
the farmers market (nothing better than a tomatoe fresh off the
vine and nothing worse than some hard thing from the supermarket).
I tend to eat simple hearty fare, as opposed to the restaraunts
where the garnish size exceeds the food size. I'm a substance over
flash kinda guy.
