... look, I was an English nerd; this is going to be a long list.
Now that I have free time to read again, I'm really getting into
Jorge Luis Borges.
Movies: Also a long list. Let's go with 10: Raiders of the Lost
Ark, Casablanca, The Godfather I & II, Blade Runner, The Dark
Knight, Judgment at Nuremberg, Ghostbusters, Amadeus, Pulp Fiction,
Also, I just saw an animated film called "The Secret of Kells"
(came out the same year as Up, from Ireland), and it's one of the
most beautiful things I've ever seen.
Music: Big fan of classic rock and 80s rock. I also like a bit of
folk music (Steeleye Span rocks) and some darker stuff -- Nick Cave
particularly. Can't say no to classical music either.
Food: Sushi and Italian. Preferably not in the same sitting.
