Movies: all sorts from Pixar to Kubrick. I don't like stoner
comedies or tacky horror films, but otherwise I'm open-minded.
Favourites include In Bruges, True Romance, Hotel Rwanda, The
Shining, Leon, Blood Diamond, Love Actually, Dr. Strangelove, Human
Traffic and The Shawshank Redemption.
Music: I guess I would say my heart is with the blues (1920s to
1970s), but I go through long periods listening to other genres,
particularly reggae, hip hop and electronica. Other interests
include funk, soul, jazz, swing, world music, folk, disco and
dancehall. Generally, I don't like much metal, indie or country,
although there are exceptions (SFA, RATM, SOAD - bands who are
referred to by their acronyms, it would seem).
This makes me happy:
Food: curry, craft beer, chocolate, cake...
