I enjoy science fiction, comedy, documentaries and doc-dramas
On TV I watch The daily show, coupling, Borgia, John Adams, Firefly and Star Trek. As far as movies go my favorites include American Beauty, The Big Lebowski, The Day the Earth Stood Still and all of Mel Brook's films.
I read a lot of history, political science and philosophy.
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, Letters from the earth, Ruin of the Roman empire, Lies My Teacher Told Me, Stranger in a Strange Land, 1491.
I enjoy Mediterranean food but will eat almost anything.
