I love movies and my taste ranges more towards the critics than the people. Though I do enjoy some shoot-em-up movies, I prefer character-driven wordy films. I'm a big disliker of musicals, except West Side Story and The Producers. The most painful moments of my life were seeing Mama Mia with a group of friends who all loved it, and Camelot starring Richard Harris prancing around in tights in his 60s. Puhleaze. Okay, I have had more painful moments but they just aren't amusing.
I love all types of music. I used to say except rap and country but I do like some of each now. Wow. I know that's rare for someone my age.
I love food, particular spicy Asian food, but I detest guts. Yuck.
I like watching TV shows through streaming services. Right now I'm watching The News Room, How to Get Away with Murder and Empire. I'm a big fan of Downton Abbey and recently finished watching Louis, Maron and Mad Men.
I also enjoy radio and podcasts including Serial and Undisclosed. I love This American Life, Fresh Air, Snap Judgment, and The Moth Radio Hour. I'm a big fan of NPR.
