I look forward to my Harper's each month.
Don't Look Now, Rosemary's Baby, Ace In the Hole, Winged Migration,
The Apartment, and Withnail & I are favorites.
Not really a TV person (I don't own one) but will occasionally
binge (Twin Peaks, Arrested Development, Curb Your Enthusiasm).
When I visit my parents in Pennsylvania, I lose large chunks of
time to Animal Planet.
