I have very diverse interests and have traveled a lot and read a
lot and listened to a lot of music. I love cooking and food. In all
cases there are no specific genres or favorites, I pretty much like
It's hard to name things but I will list some that come to mind,
some shamelessly cribbed from other peoples profiles. I will add
more as I think of them. This is a pretty random sampling:

Arizona, The Big Lebowski, etc.) but not the other half, foreign

with a Chance of Meatballs, Monsters, Inc., Lexx, Firefly,
Battlestar Galactica (new series), Dr Who, Twin Peaks.

Orleans style and classic be-bop like Miles Davis and Thelonious
Monk), all the Canadian Sara(h)s: McLachlan, Slean, etc., Blur,
Kate Bush, Kristin Hersh/Throwing Muses/50 Foot Wave, Buddha Bar,

Sushi! Italian, Thai, Japanese... I love all different kinds of
The typical book club stuff, Laxness, Bulgakov, Gogol, Vonnegut,
trashy science fiction... Lately I have been reading more non
fiction on Buddhism and meditation. I was a voracious reader most
of my life, but lately not so much. Probably will again.
I love travelling and really experiencing new places, as close to
the local lifestyle as possible. I'm not interested in cruises,
tours, or 5 star luxury resorts. I've been to various parts of
Asia, Europe, and Australia/New Zealand.
