Our favorite movie would probably be something like the 1993
version of the "Last of the Mohicans", because it is an amazing and
timeless story about a fundamental circumstantial and cultural
juxtaposition of a number of differing characters, from completely
different backgrounds, each of which is at the top of their game.
Who are thrown together into a complete dislocation. It is told
reasonably well in this version, and we probably have an affinity
for it because it comes very close to our own circumstances and how
we met. And it somehow touched us in its' telling (the score is
pretty cool too). BTW: If you haven't seen it, you might want to
consider watching it - its a fairly accurate portrayal of the
historical context within which it is set (1757).
We have many more potential "favorites". Some others would be
“Castaway”, "Kingdom of Heaven", “American Beauty”, “Pulp Fiction”,
"Amores Perros", “From Dusk till Dawn”, “Dancing at the Blue
Iguana”, "The Bucket List", "Y tu mamá también", "Inglorious
Bastards", “Black Snake Moan”, “Rain over Me”, "Shawshank
Redemption", "Snatch", "Transformers...", "Avatar", "Zombieland",
"Lucky Number Slevin", "Fracture", "Sin City", "Iron Man", "Crash",
Disney stuff... like: "Shrek...", "Wall-E", "Toy Story...",
"Despicable Me", "Lion King", "The Golden Compass", "King Arthur",
"300", "13th Warrior", "Gladiator", "Braveheart", "Troy",
"X-Men..." movies, “The Lord of the Rings...” movies, the “Star”
Wars & Trek sagas, the "Terminator..." movies, and the
"Matrix..." movies. We like movies, and watch them instead of
We also read quite a bit, science

Our music favorites have a wide spectrum, but it would probably be
hard rock-and-roll-blues like Pink-Floyd, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, and
Jimi Hendrix, among many others, and straight-up blues like BB
King, among others, that we like the best. We also like a number of
other styles that range from Classical to Peruvian and sometimes
Salsa and Meringue to Gregorian Chants. We tend not to like country
"Twang" or "Phht!" Rap, although there are even a few pieces in
each that we like. We tend to dislike some of the repetitive "Pop"
music, but others we like very much.
Basically, we don't watch TV, we don’t even have an active TV feed.
However, when we did watch, our list of TV programs was pretty much
exclusively things without commercials (using DVR’s exclusively).
The girl of us (actually both of us to some degree, but the girl
more) also loves to watch professional football games, if the games
are a close match, and intensely played. We don't watch much other
There is very little edible, that we would not try eating, so long
as it was prepared in a reasonably safe, balanced and healthy way.
And at the very "tip-top" of our list would probably be wild-caught
sushi and sushimi, along with a juicy, range-fed, barbecued steak.
But the majority of what we eat is organic vegetables, fruits and
legumes. Our parrot's favorite food is unquestionably chicken!
Really - and though it may sound cannibalistic to some, it is not .
The difference between an African Grey and a chicken is as large as
the difference between you and a cow!
