high brow choices, I love action/thriller flicks too: Midnight Run,
Safe House, the Millennium Trilogy (either the US version or the
Swedish version), The Bourne Identity Series, all the Star Wars
(which except for the first one, I saw all on the first day they
came out), and I loved Rock of Ages.
If I watch TV, it is usually a series so I can watch it at my own
pace. I've watched West Wing, Heroes, Boston Legal, The Borgias, In
Treatment, The Kennedys, The Men who Killed Kennedy, '24.' I like
BBC shows like Prime Suspect, Father Ted, Foyle's War and Sherlock
(the new one!). Oh yes. I live for the Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
I went to a live taping of the Colbert Report in Vancouver during
the Olympics and even saw myself on TV. I am successfully chipping
away at my 15 minutes. As far as shows, I do like live theatre.
Ooooh, and I love opera, which also gives me the chance to wear
gowns and crowns. ;)
Food. Yum. Most ethnics stuff. Just about anything Indian-but high
marks for palak paneer, kofta and bharta for veggie stuff and
chicken tikka masala or butter chicken for meat. Anything Italian
like cannelloni or insalata caprese. Pad Thai with extra egg or
green curry. Yam tempura rolls with brown rice. A dönar from
Kreuzberg. Dessert? baked New York style cheesecake, apple strüdel,
fine chocolate and rugelach from Solly's. Not all at the same time,
I discovered Adele a while back and thought she was fantastic. I
got to see her in Vancouver. Other than that, my tastes are
ecclectic. Everything from Leonard Cohen through Filippa Giordano
to Francis Cabrel. I know all the words to most songs from the
1970s. I know. It's crazy.
My life revolves around the book *Dialectic of Enlightenment* by
Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno. In its pursuit, I am constantly
reading other philosophy, as well as anthropology, psychology and
history. I love non-fiction. I was a historical tour guide for four
years in Berlin. I have been known to like novels, especially when
in a book club. The meeting date provides good motivation to finish
reading the book.
