Books/Authors: Sex and Power, SLUT, The Diary of a Madame, Being an
Expat, Anything by Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Maya Angelou, and
Movies - Kinsey (I was looking into the Univ of Amsterdam where the
Kinsey project is studied), American President (Politics is
perception and perception is people's reality), Primal Fear
(Norton's best and Laura Linney is awesome!) or the Illusionist.
Ironman and the Avengers too. Because of LA , I notice lots of
little technical aspects of movies from being around the
Music -- Everything from Jazz to Techno, though more upbeat.
Everything but the Girl is my favorite band, other favorites
include Janet Jackson, Madonna, Billy Joel, Genesis, Aerosmith, and
I have seen a ridiculous number of concerts/shows while in
Houston(and somehow have become sorta a regular at HOB): Trombone
Shorty, Darcy James Argue's Secret Society (Big Band), Avenue Q,
Suicide Girls Burlesque, Kathleen Madigan, Tran Siberian Orchestra,
BB King, Eric Clapton, Bruno Mars, Boney James, Matchbox 20, The
Goo Goo Dolls, STOMP, Courtney Love, Sugar Ray, Fastball, Smash
Mouth, Gin Blossoms, Odd Ball Comedy Festival, Bill Cosby, Kevin
Nealon, and Houston Symphony's 50 Years of James Bond and Beyond
and Luck Be A Lady: A Night of Frank Sinatra.
Upcoming shows include: 2 Symphony Shows (Music from the Mad Men
(Feb) era and 100 Years of Broadway (March)) and Tran Siberian
Orchestra (Dec 27). I am interested in getting into more of the
local jazz scene.
Food - I am very much a foodie and enjoy everything from high end
experiences to holes in the wall. I love sushi but hate the smell
of cooked fish, nor am I a huge fan of pasta. I love spicy and
cultural foods! Tapas is by far the best style to eat.
