Just saw White Palace for the first time in a while with Susan
Sarandon and James Spader. It has been put in my top 10. The
chemistry is pretty unbelievable. Recent movies include "I Am
Love", an Italian film which is now in my top 5 or 10 movies of all
time. Also saw "On the Waterfront" in full, which is also in my top
10. "The Hangover" was pretty funny, especially the scene towards
the end when the confident guy was starting to lose it in the
desert and was calling the bachelor's fiance.
Movies : The Matrix (especially interactions between Neo and three
of the other main characters: the Oracle, Trinity and Morpheus);
Just saw My Cousin Vinnie, Life of Pi, The Girl Next Door,
Sleepwalking with Me, Leap Year (very cute Romantic Comedy, Mao's
Last Dancer, Forest Gump, Sideways, Crash, Terms of Endearment,
Saturday Night Fever, Titanic, Animal House, Caddyshack, The Truman
Show, The Cable Guy (highly underrated), Dumb and Dumber, Legally
Wed, Management, Dirty Dancing, Fargo, The Godfather, Goodfellas,
Its a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World, Sex and Other Drugs, Sex, Lies and
Videotapes, Old School, The Secret (from a spiritual perspective),
Pretty Woman, Fargo, etc
Note: As you can see, very eclectic and not always the most mature
of films. Dark comedy is a vice of mine.
TV includes HBOgo : Enlightened, Hung, The Killing, The Mentalist,
CNBC Restaurant Startup.
Books: Just read Neal Donald Walsh's book on Holistic Living. Also
read "In Her Shoes" by Jennifer Weiner and "On the Way to the
Wedding" by Julia Quinn. "A Separate Reality", Finding Your Soul
Mate by Michael, Here at the End of the World We learn To Dance by
Lloyd Jones, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Buddhism: Plain and
Simple, Sex and Psychic Sexual Energy by Betty Bethards, My first
book was James and The Giant Peach. The first really interesting
book I can remember reading was The Godfather. I enjoyed the movies
too, especially the first one.
Music: Classical is what I listen to most; now - KDFC is on most of
the time. Bands include U2, Marvin Gaye, the Beatles, Whitney
Houston (when she gets way up there), Dave Mathews Band, Lynard
Skynard, The Eagles, Phil Collins, New age stuff, even some
country. Adele, Lady Gaga are talented.
Food: Korean Food is my favorite (if I had one meal to eat), Thai,
Chinese is the only food I can eat every day for months and months
but even that can get old; Cheese Burgers, good Pizza; fruits and
veggies at every meal except breakfast. Peaches (2 week window
during late summer) where there is nothing better (especially when
I haven't eaten sweets in a while), bananas. Smoothies and juicing
are great. Raw Food is something I am getting into, along with
eating range fed beef.
Just a note about drinking. Although I don't drink (never was
motivated to learn how to drink in moderation, if you catch my
drift), dating someone who drinks in moderation is ok. It wouldn't
probably be a fit if the person consumes a lot. However, there have
been drinkers around me so it feels relatively comfortable to be
around them. Not really into going to the bar scene, though.
Obviously, being around non-drinkers is ok, too.
I have been to about 10 countries in Asia, including Japan, Korea,
the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. I have lived in
China, Hong Kong and Taiwan for a total of 3 years. It really makes
you appreciate what we have here in the Bay Area. In Europe, I have
visited Germany. My plan is to visit England, Ireland, France and
Spain. Italy would be nice too.
