I tend to like fiction of no particular genre. My favorite writers
are John Irving, Barbara Kinsolver, Haruki Murakami, and William
Gibson to name a few. Books that I have read recently include A
Dirty Job by Christopher Moore, The Dun Cow, a book by Clive
Cussler, and the Nicholas Nickleby by Charles Dickens. I have three
more cracked at the time I write this.
Movies usually disappoint me. I never mind not watching to the end,
even if it means leaving the theater. Having said that I do enjoy
Raiders of the Lost Arc, The Matrix, The Princes Bride, Big Fish,
Lost in Translation, Rushmore, Under a Tuscan Sun, Charade, Raise
the Red Lantern...
I enjoy serialized tv shows more than movies. Buffy, Firefly,
Dexter, American Horror Story, Homeland, Game of Thrones, Weeds,
you get the picture. Reality tv bites. Unless you are talking about
the original reality tv: PBS!
Also, my hand goes up for all in favor of NPR! Music is magical,
and my tastes are all over the place. I can handle a little of just
about anything. My own collection of music is quite wide and am
happy to listen to something new. Unless it's garbage. But love
Garbage! Right now 70s punk rock has piqued my interest. Also
Cincinnati's own Foxy Shazam puts a smile on my face.
In terms of food, I am pretty health-minded. Raw, steamed, and
sometimes stewed is how I have to eat. "Food allergies" limit my
diet, and I rarely eat out. When confronted with a pretentious
salad or nothing else on the menu, I would rather eat in.
