I really enjoy classic films from the Golden Age of Hollywood, as
well as many contemporary films.
Favorite books include Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, (well, OK,
anything by Ayn
), classic literature, history/biography, The Old Vienna
Cookbook, again, among many others. And, having mentioned
Ratatouille above, I just have to include Anatole.
Favorite foods: German/Austrian, Asian, French, New American, South
American, etc. I'll try just about anything once. I'm really into
distilled spirits and classical cocktails these days. I consider
myself an amateur barcheologist!
Favorite music: my musical tastes are very eclectic, I like a
little bit of just about everything other than rap, hip hop and
christian music. My favorite genres, however, include American pop
standards and classical, but lately I'm really getting into country
music, especially Blake Shelton and the Zac Brown Band.
But why forget television? Cable has some great television shows.
Mad Men and Justified feature great writing and terrific acting. Of
course, they're both in their last season, which is too bad. Really
enjoyed the first season of Fargo and glad to hear it'll be back.
Now that Breaking Bad is done I'm looking forward to Better Call
Saul. My favorite restaurant related shows include the original BBC
version of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, Bar Rescue and now Booze
