i'm extremely opinionated about classical music and opera. other
than that, i usually struggle to identify any song that wasn't from
as for movies, i'm quite partial to amadeus, before sunset, in the
mood for love and 2046, an ideal husband, the remains of the day,
rear window, midnight in paris, and most anything by tarantino (but
especially kill bill and inglourious basterds. and ESPECIALLY
django unchained.). no matter how terrible it is, i'm also willing
to give any movie that involves new york city a chance...you've got
mail, the peacemaker, friends with benefits, you name it. and,
james bond is my hero...a close second is jacob palmer.
tv shows...i pretty much follow what's on hbo. with a little bit of
showtime sprinkled in. it was all about the newsroom. and girls.
now trying to catch up on homeland. true detective was.THE.BEST.
i'm now hooked on kdramas, mainly to improve my korean. gentleman's
dignity, pasta, my love from another star...all great. now working
on it's okay, that's love.
food...hm, this is a tough one. i go out to eat a
lot. in new york, my most recent memorable meals were at
the nomad, momofuku ko, maialino, and sushi yasuda. in paris,
l'arpège and le comptoir du relais. in montréal, au pied de cochon
(and desperate to try joe beef.). i'm also a bit obsessed with nyc
pizza...difara, paulie gee, motorino, roberta's, don antonio,
nicoletta, to name a few faves.
[if you're wondering about the "vegetarian" thing, i've been
inspired by graham hill's weekday vegetarianism and the vb6 diet by
mark bittman. so far, i don't miss meat all that much. but don't
worry: i can still out-eat most anyone.]
books...i've dabbled a bit in murakami, dostoyevsky, and david
sedaris. i'm trying to get through the great gatsby, but only
because i saw baz's movie first (don't judge). ultimately though,
i've been opting for improving language skills over reading for
pleasure. it's all about communication, ladies...n'est-ce pas?
