All food, especially anything Asian/Mediterranean. Not so much
I'll watch about any movie but most of them seem formulaic. Primer
was pretty good. Dawn of the Dead is my favorite zombie movie
(right next to Shawn of the Dead for favorite zombie-comedy).
French-mystery/action-thrillers. Castaway on the Moon. Tarantino,
Some of my all time favorite bands are Bloc Party, The
Decemberists, Kaiser Chiefs, Interpol, The Stars, The Weepies, The
Smiths, The Cure, Bon Iver, Death Cab, Broken Social Scene, The
National, Empire of the Sun, Beach House, Lykke Li and El Perro Del
Mar... Mother Mother and Little Green Cars lately.
I read a lot, usually the thicker the better since I go through
them so fast I need to get my money's worth. Used to be a lot of
horror, sic-fi and fantasy: G.R.R. Martin, Stephen King, Dean
Koontz, Jim Butcher, Anne Rice, Simon Greene, Robert Jordon. Tom
Clancy is good too, they don't come much thicker than that. Lately
I have been reading murder mysteries, Val McDermid, Tara French.
Also the occasional taoist, buddhist, economic, science, self-help
or fitness book. Right now I am reading The Historian, seems like
it will be a good time. After that, 100 years of solitude.
