I've taken a few years off from college in order to work, but I'm getting ready to go back and take a few classes in the spring, and I can't wait.
Also, just how clearly in the wrong decade I am.
For TV, I of course love Trek and it's descendants. I started by accidentally flipping to Voyager one night in 1996 on my little UHF tv in my bedroom, was immediately hooked, and very rapidly got into all of the other series. I'm also big on old Dr. Who (I'll take any of the classic era Doctors, particularly Tom Baker, over any of the 2005- ones any day, though I do like nuWho too,) the new Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5 and the mytharc episodes of The X Files. Outside of that, I really dig Curb Your Enthusiasm, the current BBC Sherlock series, Breaking Bad, and, whenever I can catch it, Jeapordy. Also, Monty Python's Flying Circus is just monumentally, inexpressibly brilliant. I recently watched through The Prisoner (1967,) which was really fantastic. I spent countless hours in high school watching Iron Chef (the real one, not the american version,) and Good Eats. I just discovered Parks and Recreation and I'm loving it. It's hilarious, but it's also such a warm, sweet show, and I find myself really invested in the characters.
I tend to like older movies. I'm a major Woody Allen fan, particularly from maybe Sleeper or Love and Death all the way up through Deconstructing Harry. My favorite of his conventional films is Hannah and Her Sisters, and probably my favorite overall is Stardust Memories. I can't overstate how much I love The Marx Brothers. Harpo was my childhood hero, I very much learned my sense of irreverence and refusal to buy into the societal norms that are expected of us from him. Also, 2001 is an astoundingly beautiful film. I love great direction and cinematography, and I will always prefer "in camera" visual effects to their computer generated counterparts. I have a large place in my heart for sci-fi classics like Blade Runner, Planet of the Apes, all of the old Trek pictures, but especially II III and IV, the Star Wars trilogy (which I first saw all in one go on TV when I was staying home sick from kindergarten with food poisoning and half delerious. That was some major, world shattering shit, man,) Alien, etc. I guess this is as good a place as any to mention how much I dislike the new rebooted Star Trek pictures. To me, they are highly endemic of our current cultural climate, and exhibit none of the elements that make me love Star Trek; playing like generic big budget Hollywood explosion movies, which just so happen to feature guys in gold and blue, and red tunics. Of all the Bonds, I like Roger Moore the best by far, (the whole James Bond thing is absurd, and Rog seems to be the only one of them who understands that, and plays it accordingly campily,) though George Lazenby definitely gets an honorable mention.
I had a long essay up here about music, but it was way too dense and self indulgent. Here's the short list: Frank Zappa (all important, cannot be overstated how much I learned from Zappa,) The Beach Boys, The Beatles, J.S. Bach, L.v. Beethoven, Igor Stravinsky, Arnold Schoenberg, Todd Rundgren, Stevie Wonder (particularly from 71 to 76,) Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett, Wayne Shorter, Bill Evans, Charlie Parker, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Joe Zawinul, Weather Report, Steely Dan, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Joni Mitchell, Pat Metheny, Marvin Gaye, Motown in general, Paul Mccartney's solo records (but not really any of the other guys solo records besides All Things Must Pass,) Terry Riley, John McLaughlin and Shakti. Always on vinyl. There are many more, but these are the most important ones to me. For what it's worth, there have been exceedingly few records to come out since the early 70s that hold any interest for me, and I really can't relate to anything related to punk, hard rock/metal, country, or hip hop.
My radio literally never leaves NPR. I'm kind of reeling from the loss of My Word from my Friday night drive home. Sunday nights are the best, what with the TED radio hour, This American Life, Radiolab, and Pipe Dreams.
There isn't really a section for this, but I'm a total sucker for anything the classic BBC Radiophonic Workshop had a hand in. I recently listened to (and really enjoyed) an early 70s BBC radio adaptation of Asimov's Foundation Trilogy.
Italian is great, as are pretty much every Asian cuisine I've run across (Thai, Indian, hell, I have to admit a fondness for American Chinese food too.) I'll probably always have a soft spot for killer hot wings, and a good, medium rare steak. I also love to cook (and am very good at it, I must say,) but it can be kind of depressing to just cook for myself. I'd love to cook for you though!
I'm not a heavy drinker, but traditionally I've liked IPA's, and vodka tonics. Recently I've been starting to get into bourbon.
