going for awhile...
Movies- Anything based on a comic book, Goodfellas, Casino, all
three Godfathers, Scarface, American Beauty, The Expendables,
anything starring John Cusack but especially Say Anything and High
Fidelity, I like movies with gratuitous violence, sex, and horrible
dialogue, as well as the occasional comedy or chick flick. Not a
fan of horror movies. I've had enough terror in my life first hand
thank you very much...
TV- I usually only put tv shows on in the background while I do
other things, but my favorites are- The Sopranos, Kitchen
Nightmares, Sons of Anarchy, The Office, Battlestar Galactica,
STNG, Bones, House, Lie to Me, Castle, Firefly, and whatever else
will distract me for a bit.
Music- I like music. That's pretty much it. When I'm alone I listen
mostly to hip hop and people like Gogol Bordello, Flogging Molly,
The Tossers, Issa Bagayogo... I've been going to a lot of local
shows lately. Music is the one area where I have to say I don't
really know what I like, but I know when I like it.
Food. I'm a cook. I have lived in France and in West Africa as an
adult which has definitely colored my taste. I also worked in fine
dining for a couple of years so have an appreciation for quality
when it comes to both cuisine and booze. I have never met a food I
couldn't learn to like, and very much enjoy both cooking for
someone and having someone cook for me.
The best is finding someone you can share a kitchen with... if you
can cook two different things with a lady in the same space and not
only do it well but have a good time doing it... oh mama I just got
really turned on......
