Let's start with food: is it food? If yes, then I probably love it.
Unless it's raisins. Reminds me of line I heard the other day:
"Let's face it, pretty much anything with raisins would be better
with chocolate chips. For example, a box of raisins." Raisins
aside, I love to eat. I'm glad the word gourmand exists, because it
describes me quite well.
TV: I'll just list these. I probably spend too much time with that
glowing rectangle, but think we're in a golden age for good
television. Some of my favorites, in no particular order:
-Battlestar Galactica (just blasted through the entire season again
-Suits, although I think its jumped the shark in Season 3
-Star Trek TNG
-The Office -- the british version and first two seasons of the
Movies: As a genre, I like quotable comedies...
-The Big Lebowski
-Dazed and Confused
-Blazing Saddles (yes, Mel Brooks is a comic genius)
Books: I don't read enough. I'll make that judgment on myself. But
I do love surrealist or austere modern fiction: Thomas Pynchon,
Jonathan Lethem, Jonathan Franzen, Annie Proulx, Cormac McCarthy.
I've been meaning to pick up Infinite Jest for some time. Best book
I read recently was The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach.
