I am international, inquisitive, and happy
Right now I'm too busy with my life ;-)
I can't answer this question on behalf of other people ;-)
Some of my favorite authors include: Arthur C. Clarke, Joseph Conrad, Chin-Ning-Chu, Clarissa Pinkola Estes, John Fowles, Khalil Ghibran, William Gibson, Robert Johnson, Barbara Kingsolver, S.P.Somtow, George Soros, Neal Stephenson, Sun-Tsu, Nicholas Nassim Taleb, Mario Vargas-Llosa, ..... and many more, including classical Western & Eastern literature (such as the TaoTeChing, GoRinNoSho, Ramayana, Mahabharata, Dhammapada, Sutras of Patanjali, etc). With a few special exceptions, I usually read most books only once, but I do often read many different books in parallel at (more or less) the same time. If we consider books of poetry too, then I could also add to the list Basho, Lucian Blaga, Blake, .....
Favorite movie directors include: Francis Ford Cuppola & Quentin Tarrantino (USA), Akira Kurosawa (Japan), Peter Weir (Australia), Werner Hertzog & Wim Wenders (Germany), Louis Malle (France), Andrei Tarkovsky (Russia). My favorite film stars include Nicolas Cage.
c) Music: Basically I like almost everything except rap. My favorite music is very ecclectic and doesn't fit into any specific, well-known genre.
d) Food: Japanese food, Vegetarian food, Thai food, Indian food, avocados, fresh coconut, tropical fruits especially: strawberry, rambutan, mango, mangosteen.
e) And what about ART ?? .... very important !!
Favorite sculptors: Rodin. Also the Graeco-Buddhist Gandharra statues were beautiful (before they were destroyed by the Taliban).
Favorite painters: The French Impressionists, and also Canadian Impressionism (The Group of 5 + Tom Thompson, etc).
Favorite Japanese art: Hokusai, Sumie-style painting.
Other Asian art that I like: Tibetan / Nepali.
Also I really like good erotic photography, such as for example Guido Argentini's "Silver" series, and others .....
(And I enjoy good sex too, but I can do without it if/when I have to).
Firstly my sincere apologies to you, dear reader, if I have left your message unanswered. I have not visited OKCupid for quite some time.
What I can confirm is that OK Cupid's matching system really works VERY well. I found my ideal partner here at OK Cupid, and I am no longer available for dating. I wish you as much happiness as I have found with the wonderful woman who I met here at OK Cupid. Thanks also to the OKCupid staff for this excellent website and for bringing me such happiness. :-) :-)
