Movies: I’ll go to the studio blockblusters with my kids but prefer recent movies like “Memento”, “The Machinist” (with a very skinny Christian Bale), “Three Kings” plus oldies but goodies like “Chinatown”, “Casablanca” and Hitchcock’s “Notorious”. Little known movies I’ve enjoyed include “Planet B-Boy”, “Red Belt”, “Duplicity” (a great combo relationship/caper movie) and “Dark of the Sun” (a guilty pleasure). My favorite recent romantic comedy was “My Best Friend’s Wedding” because of the ending.
Music: wide spectrum from the Motown and rock and roll of my youth to current music including hip-hop and rap (wasn't Dylan an early rapper after all?).
Theater: I enjoy live theater but don’t go as often as I would like. I saw my favorite all-time musical in 1991- “City of Angels”
TV: In my youth, I watched too much TV so I try not to turn it on now. Having said that, I’ll admit that I like “Law and Order” (mainly the original older ones, not so much the derivatives or more recent seasons). I’ll make an exception with the kids and watch their stuff, from “Downton Abbey” to “Regular Show” to “Archer” and back to "Sherlock"
Food: Everything ethnic though I'm down to 3 out of 5 stars spicy from my youth
