I love Nick Hornby, David Sedaris and romantic comedies, both in
film and book form.
Some current favorites on TV include: How I Met Your Mother, The
Big Bang Theory, Modern Family and of course, I usually end my
weeknights with Jon and Stephen.
I love The West Wing and The Gilmore Girls for the same reason-
intelligent, quick, witty dialogue.
I don't claim that this is an exhaustive list nor am I suggesting
that all of these are high caliber films, just things I like.
Most of John Hughes and Kevin Smith's movies
The Constant Gardener
Four Weddings and a Funeral
Good Morning Vietnam
I have gone well out of my way to see Jump, Little Children and
Weezer live- the only two bands I have seen perform more than once.
Otherwise I enjoy listening to Green Day, Ben Folds, Less Than
Jake, Save Ferris. I guess my musical tastes are mostly in the alt
rock and ska veins and I'm a total sucker for bands with a cello
and/or a horn section. I miss the old 104.9 which became "La
Romantica, Mexican love ballads" sometime while I was in college,
briefly reemerged at 92.3 FM and sadly, that has now become what I
think are Mandarin Chinese love songs.
