Movies: I am a movie nut and watch almost anything. But just off the top of my head. A Love Song for Bobby Long; District 9; The General; The Godfather, Swept Away, Aguirre: The Wrath of God; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly; Unforgiven; Up; Wall-E. Documentaries, Horror Movies, Chick Flicks, Foreign Films. I recently discovered a genre called Gritty British Crime Movies which let me indulge my love of Guy Ritchie and his like. If I had to choose one movie to watch on a desert island, it would be a black comedy.
Music: I am a musician and absolutely passionate about music. I love the composing, arranging and recording process. I had a wonderful experience last year teaching elementary school kids how to put together a recording of music they created themselves. I'll listen to any good music. Currently listening to a lot of Malian and West African music, Shackleton, Chemical Brothers, I grew up on Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Led Zeppelin, I love Chopin. Jazz from the turn of the Century to the 50's lights me up. It is easier just to say that I am not a great fan of commercial country music.
Food: My favorites are Northern Italian, Thai and sushi.
