Some of the directors I like are Michael Haneke, Albert Brooks, Jean-Luc Godard, Eric Rohmer, Aleksandr Sokurov, John Cameron Mitchell, Luis Bunuel, Rene Clement and Powell and Pressberger. Also the seminal Parker Posey flick Party Girl.
I watch the same television programs as everyone else--Doctor Who, Mad Men, Girls, Breaking Bad, Weeds, Joss Whedon stuff, etc.
Once in college I was at a party, and a guy asked me what sort of music I listen to. I said, "Oh, you know, The Rolling Stones, The Violent Femmes, The Velvet Underground..." and he nodded and said, half to himself, "So Liz Phair." I found, and still find, that anecdote curiously telling, although what it tells, and about whom, I can't quite say.
I like all foods except sweet corn, but I particularly like sushi, cucumbers, cheese and lentil soup.
