Food is easy, I like mostly all kinds of food. I am a carnivore (but can provide vegetarian options). Indian is lovely, I can do some simple Italian, I'm not Jamie, but I do have his book! Guilty secret time... I love a square sausage roll with melted cheese for breakfast - feel those arteries harden, yum. Naturally I can;t have this often. When it comes to drink, I make a mean martini, and I love Whisky (of choice Talisker). I never drink lager. Is this in some way helpful?
Reading: some favourites: Cloud Atlas, Wuthering Heights, The Incident of the Dog in the Nightime, Voodoo Science, Whoops! Richard Feynman. Anything by: Ian (+M) Banks, Kate Tempest, Thomas Hardy, Murakami, and er Twitter. I'm a slowish reader as I'm dyslexic but I love to read and this excuses all my bad spelling now.
Music, I like a lot of stuff and here's some, The Smiths, Tracey Thorn, Nick Drake, Tom Waits, King Creosote, Alabama 3, Belle and Sebastian, Divine Comedy, Dead can Dance, Dick Gaughan. I'm more Radio 6 than Radio 1 and R4 the rest of the time.
Cinema: Films are my favourite escape, I like all kinds of stuff from arthouse to quality blockbusters. Not a huge fan of the superhero stuff or of tacky horror, though there are a few exceptions, Kick Ass was a fun. Excellent cinematography is the key and have a spiffy projector on which to appreciate that aspect. In no particular order, Harold and Maude, Other Peoples Lives, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Etre et Avoir, Once upon a Time in America, The Secretary, As Good as it Gets, Days of Heaven, It Happened one Night, Safety Not Guaranteed, Silver Linings Playbook, Miller's Crossing, True Grit, Midnight in Paris. I love Linklater, Woody Allen, David Lean, Coen brothers. I hold a particular affection for 70's cinema, nostalgia probably. How about a pretentious themed film night, we could make out we were students in the 80's?
TV, I have no TV, in fact I hate mainstream TV, partly to do with adverts, but mostly because I was raised in the 70's where the background noise of a TV was compulsory. World of Sport, Corrie, Wish You Were Here, Pebble Mill at One, Argggh! Like all metro sexual sophisticates though I still actually watch Television, just on my iPad via iPlayer or Netflix, and gorging on HBO type box sets is my vice. If you can't watch an entire season over the weekend, you're not that committed frankly. Stuff I like, Breaking Bad (of course), The Bridge, Deadwood, Firefly, Mad Men and the trashier end like Homeland, 24, and True Blood. Buffy of course, which I watch with my daughter, (both enjoying it but on slightly different levels). Anything by Attenborough and a good BBC4 Storyville style doc, what more could you ask for?
When it comes to laughs, I love catching standup at the fringe, Rich Hall, Josie Long, John Hegley, Simon Munnery, Shappi Korsandi, Tim Vine, Tim Keys. Faveourite shows.. The Thick of It, Spaced, Flight of the Conchrords, Black Books, Green Wing, etc.
I love Art, and so I'll put in a few artists too, Caravaggio, Velasquez, Whistler, Singer Sargent, Burne Jones, Breughel, Stanley Spencer, Meredith Frampton, Hopper, Jenny Saville. Mostly I like figurative stuff!
This is just becoming a load of lists, so I'll stop now. I imagine it tells you something and probably labours the point, I'm perhaps not too good at being concise. But now you can't sue me when you find out I'm an old fart. I am very into being introduced to new things, sounds in particular, so don't write me off for being a bit out of touch there.
