Books: Faulkner, Dumas, trite historical fiction. Read a lot of economic history, history in general. I'm completely hooked on the Game of Thrones books which really surprises me. I'm slowly trying to read through all those books people want to say they have read.
Film: Kubrick, Coppola, Memento. Generally psychological thriller types. I like movies that 'stay with you.' But I watch goofy stuff too. Movies that are novel or explore something new are always welcome (e.g. Pan's Labyrinth.) I'm not a movie snob as much as looking for something different.
TV: House of Cards, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Archer, Boardwalk Empire
Music: I enjoy almost anything with a guitar...and I listen to more and more indie-ish rock (is that a phrase people still use?).
Planning trips I may or may not ever take.
What to make for dinner.
You like to cook. You enjoy discussing many topics. You can enjoy a divey bar and fois gras.
An obsession with self-improvement is close to a must.
Vegetarians, vegans and picky eaters need not apply....
