I love food. I love to cook and mostly cook without a recipe.
I have a Gigantic music collection, but lately I just listen to CBC
Radio 2, or radioparadise
. I like jazz, indie rock, folk,
bluegrass, some pop, some dubstep, some hip hop, etc. I briefly
played harmonica in a blues band, that was a blast.
I don't really read fiction. I do read some non-fiction. I loved
the autobiography of Emmet Grogan, called Ringolevio. In general, I
enjoy reading about science, physics and cosmology, eg. Hawking,
Penrose etc. I liked Collapse, and The World until Yesterday by
Jared Diamond, or anything by Malcolm Gladwell. I am reading,
Thinking Fast and Slow (slowly) by Daniel Kahneman just now.
Movies would be, The Big Lebowski, Being John Malkovich, Blade
Runner, Casablanca, Harold and Maude, Serenity, Danny Deckchair,
Priscilla Queen of the Desert, plus anything really well
photographed. I am a consumer, not a cinephile.
I don't watch a lot of TV any more, but I remember liking Six Feet
Under, the Sopranoes, Firefly (a western set in space, how cool is
that), and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. My teenaged daughter watches a
fair bit of TV, I find even though the shows are funny, the pace
and timing annoy me now.
