Having been in the film & TV industries in the past, I am rather selective about my film faves, and even more so about television, much of which I find easy to dismiss.
Film-wise, give me the original Sunset Boulevard or All About Eve anytime. Young Frankenstein and my friend Mel Brooks will always make me laugh. Scorsese can generally do no wrong. The film Away From Her will always make me cry.
For TV, the History channel, Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, Anthony Bourdain and The Colbert Report do nicely.
Music.....where to start? I really wanted to be a writer of song, but alas, did not make the cut. But, I studied music at school, have been playing guitar almost every day since I was 13 (I know more than 3 chords now!), and spent many thousands of hours in the recording studio working with truly talented people. Music has been and continues to be a salvation. Music has long been my best & truest friend. It is much easier to list what I don't like than rattle off what I love. But give me some heartfelt blues, Gershwin, Porter, Miles Davis, Eric Dolphy, Mozart or Woodstock-era R&R and I am a happy man. Clapton is still a god (small g).
Hearing live performance is a gift. Performing live is even better.
Food can be a sensual adventure. I enjoy experimenting and experiencing new tastes. I could live on sushi, Thai and Indian fare, but I will always find a place for good Italian or French cuisine. I am fairly adept at the backyard grill and getting better indoors, too. Cooking a meal with a lover can be one of life's special events. Cooking alone is simply subsistence.
Really, the future takes up a large part of my imagination. I also constantly ask myself if there is anything else that can be done. Usually there is!
