Favorite movies are harder to list (good new ones are always appearing). But any list of enduring favorites would have to include Enchanted April, All About Eve, Pan's Labyrinth, Zulu, Harold and Maude, The Hunt for Red October, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Tall Guy, High Fidelity, Winged Migration, and almost anything with Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, or Meryl Streep. As for TV shows, at various times I've been hooked on The Wire, Upstairs Downstairs, Firefly, Slings & Arrows, Wonderfalls, Babylon 5, Rome, the Sopranos, Poldark, and the various Planet Earth nature documentaries.
Musically I fear I'm mainly stuck in the 70s and 80s, with a smattering of 60s folk revival and more recent singer-songwriters. I love a lot of classical music from the 17th through 19th centuries as well as Celtic music. Anything with a violin or fiddle is a plus.
As for food, now that's one of my favorite subjects. I love complex flavors and diverse cuisines. My wife loves to cook and I love to eat, so it's a great combination. It's important to me to eat locally, humanely, and sustainably produced food (I do as much of my shopping in farmer's markets as possible). I do eat some meat, but only what I can buy directly from the small-scale producers. Except in certain circumstances, I prefer not to eat things that come from the ocean. The marine world is important to me, and I want to leave it intact.
Well-written novels to immerse myself in
