I have so many ever changing tastes that I can't possibly list them
In books and movies I especially like anything well written with
witty dialogue and non-obvious plotlines.
For movies Heist (the one directed by Mamet), Memento, Snatch and
anything by Quentin Tarantino strikes my fancy.
I have friends in a few small local theater companies, so I enjoy
going to support their art.
I usually have no less than 3 books going at a time. I often read
stuff like Dean R. Koontz, John Grisham, Robin Cook, Steven King,
Kinky Friedman, Michael Connelly and Anne Rice. I just found my
copy of Gulag Archipelago and am working on it again. I also like
reading about ways to better myself in a myriad of ways.
I love all kinds of food and I'm extremely adventurous when it
comes to ethnic cuisine. I try to cook vegetarian as much as I can,
but it's difficult to find recipes that I like, though I make some
wicked stuffed peppers. I call garlic and onions sauteed in olive
oil the "holy trinity". It's insanely tasty, good for you and it
keeps the breath mint companies in business. Not liking sushi is a
serious negative. I won't call it a deal-breaker, but it's
There is music that I don't really enjoy, but not much. I'll go
listen to anyone live and love it. I love the blues and blues
inspired music which is just about everything in one way or another
(nasally country grates on my nerves, though). On any given day I
could be listening to Muse, Metric and Sneaker or Social
Distortion, Everlast and the Beastie Boys or Ray Charles, Marvin
Gaye and Al Green. After seeing Soundgarden in LA, I've been
listening to the grunge soundtrack of my college days.
