Adventurous about food; willing to try about anything except organ
meats. Ick. Steamers and mussels out on a deck with beer and good
bread makes for a terrific summer afternoon. I prefer red wine to
white, and dark beers. I love rustic breads, I only wish I could
make them well. I love pig.
Books: Chabon, Bourdain, King, Franzen, something with a good
story. My work has enough drama, so I prefer to read to be
entertained, not educated.
Movies: Moneyball rocked. I really liked Argo. I admired the
filmmaking and technology that was behind Hugo, but as a story it
didn't move me. I usually prefer comedies to dramas. I think
sometimes Adam Sandler and Will Farrell need to be reminded that
not every idea they have is actually funny, but sometimes they get
it right. I usually like Aaron Sorkin scripts and Judd Apatow
Music: must have a beat. No rap, twangy country or trilly opera. I
haven't found a radio station that matches me completely, so I'm
usually bouncing around the dial. Tho I am an old soul, I like Foo
Fighters, Radiohead, Cake, Green Day and some other stuff my kids
listen to. The hip hop blended with 80's music? Not so much.
TV: I am totally bummed Friday Night Lights and No Reservations
have ended. I like Modern Family, but it's starting to get stale. I
try not to miss Big Bang Theory: I identify with Raj's struggles.
