Read all the Jack Reacher books (Lee Child) before they were made into movies -btw Tom Cruise is SO WRONG for the role.
And recently I got into "young adults" books and one of my favorites is The Uglies Series (Uglies, Pretties, Specials, and Extras).
I don’t normally keep the books I read and prefer to pass them on or donate.
Movies: Too many to list but I DON’T like - violent movies without a plot, or any horror movies, or really sappy romantic movies. I can’t tolerate bad acting and WILL walk out on a bad movie. I like foreign movies a lot but can also enjoy a blockbuster.
TV: I like all kinds of shows and also anything to do with time-travel even when it's really bad.
Recently binge-watched Jessica Jones & Luke Cage. I like it a lot beacuse it reminds me of "film noir", something that seem to have passed from this world.
I also liked watching " The Man in the High Castle". The concept is interesting and the production and some of the acting is excellent.
Perior to that on vacation in Israel, I binge watched the entire 1st season of "Jane the Virgin" with my sister - please don't judge me.
One of the shows I really like is "Black Sails" that tells the story of the characters from Robert Lewis Stevenson's Treasures Island 30 years prior. The production, acting, cinematography, and plot line are excellent. It made me run back and read the book again. I highly recommend it if you're into pirates.
Music: LOVE cumbia, Fado. Pretty eclectic taste in music (i.e. Bersuit Vergarabat, Xavier Rudd, Mariza, and many more), and I don't care much for Jazz (most of it anyway). I really love live music and 9 out of 10 times i'd brefer a live music bar over recorded music.
Food: Prefer seafood or vegetarian over meat. Thai food being one of my favorites. And of course Mexican and Middle Eastern.
I love this Mr. Bean video so appropriate for this site https://youtu.be/qLNhVC296YI
Update: down to 2 cups and now in search of 4 things I can't do without.
Update 2: found 2 more things duct tape, and reading glasses.
I have many things I CAN do without but there is no spot to fill in that info.
I always think of this scene from the movie Surrogates, so I definitely want to meet quickly to put us both at ease (https://youtu.be/FVuseDPjFc8)
