I love movies. I'm a very accomplished movie game player. I grew up
with them. But some of my favorite directors are Bernardo
Bertolucci, Antonioni (Blow Up in particular), Curtis Hanson and
Pedro Almodovar. I love artsy, smart movies and film noir, but I'm
not above the occasional great action movie or incredible
animation. A few of my faves are Stealing Beauty, LA Confidential,
Velvet Goldmine, Secretary, Stardust, Volver and Howl's Moving
Castle. I hate horror movies, I don't enjoy feeling scared.
I love to read. Mysteries are really fun for some fluffier stuff. I
love to read plays, Roberto Arlt is a passion of mine. A few of my
favorite authors off the top of my head: Nabokov, Terry Pratchett,
Neil Gaiman, Laurie R King, Kundera and scores of others I can't
think of. I'm a big nerd so I'm also starting to get into
nonfictionnow that I'm not forced to learn anymore.
When it comes to music I'm not always up on what's new or hip, but
I love to learn and listen to interesting stuff. Singing is one of
my favorite things to do. A few that scream out are Aimee Mann,
Manu Chao, Magnetic Fields, Juanes.
Food should always be an exploration. I'll try almost anything
once. I like Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, Thai, Vietnamese, Spanish
and Moroccan to name a few.
