Books: loved the Millenium series. The Jasons. World War Z. Time Traveller's Wife. The Last Word. Currently: What to Drink with What you Eat. Will Ferguson's 419 was such a sad but all to real story. Terry Fallis' political stories were good reads. Next: whatever I find at the library.
Lawrence of Arabia. Airplane. Godfathers I & II. Chinatown. Pretty much anything by Bill Forsythe or the Coen bros. Documentaries. Loads more. An admitted weakness for shlock. Sometimes campy fills a void (with another void).
I'll add a few TV preferences in this box: loved Battlestar Galactica; dry, witty comedy, and old school Python and SCTV. Good drama these days: Better Call Saul, Narcos The Americans. It's the decade of the anti-hero.
Food: geez...where to start. A recent holiday solidified my views on French and Italian cooking. I try to emulate with some measure of success. View dim sum as the candy store of weekends. Oh, and the pig IS the magic animal.
