Books: All time favorite fiction: Illusions by Richard Bach. Any
good historical biography (e.g. Abraham Lincoln). Good metaphysical
reads. Anything by John-Roger.
Movies: Stardust, Shawshank Redemption, Titanic, Groundhog Day,
Moulin Rouge, Back to the Future, The Bucket List, Good Will
Hunting, and my all-time favorite (from the first day I saw it):
Forrest Gump. Also, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button; an amazing
movie and message:
Shows: Don't watch much current TV at all. All time favs: most
David Kelley (Boston Legal, Ally McBeal, Picket Fences, etc.), St.
Elsewhere, MASH. Lately on Netflix I've been watching Lie to Me,
Numb3rs, and Life.
Music: Very eclectic tastes inspired by what I grew up with:
classic rock, 80's music, soft rock, smooth jazz, even occasional
country. Anything that isn't too harsh or angry. I've really
learned to appreciate the magic of a well-produced record with
clean sound (for example, Steely Dan, Pink Floyd). I am a big fan
of Jeff Lynne's work with Electric Light Orchestra/Traveling
Wilbury's/Tom Petty, etc. The more I learn about music, the more
awestruck I am with the Beatles and the depth and versatility of
what they created, in such a short time, and inventing it all as
they went along.
Food: Raised on middle-America meat 'n potatoes, I have over the
last few years started to learn what eating healthy is. That said,
I still love a good burger. Anything with a really tasty sauce
(yes, good ketchup counts). I have an allergy to onions and garlic
which makes eating out a little more challenging than I would like
-- but I am always open to finding a great new place!
