I make my part of my living thanks to the Internet, but I've seen enough to have a few reservations as to whether electronic dating is viable. On the other hand anything is possible so maybe it'll connect me to some amazing people I'd never have met otherwise.
My pesto fettuccine alfredo is respectable and I make a wicked borscht. If I'm not traveling and have a little space I can raise up a formidable kitchen garden. Tomatoes, lemon cucumbers, basil and swiss chard are personal favorites.
I have varied taste in movies, but unless a blockbuster is exceptional I'd rather watch a quirky smaller movie. Mean Streets, Secrets and Lies, Out of Sight, Solaris, Casablanca, Idiocracy, Cold Souls, Millers Crossing, Barton Fink.
Lately on TV I've been really enjoying Louie, I think that show is ground breaking. Breaking Bad is tremendous, I really like the first season of Walking Dead. I'm slowly working my way through Lost from the beginning via Netflix streaming.
Musically I'm pretty back dated, I have to make a conscious effort to move forward in time instead hanging around the 50s, 60s and 70s. Jazz and Funk are my two favorite genres though I was raised on (and still love) classic rock. Miles Davis, Art Tatum, The Funky Meters, Medeski, Martin and Wood, Jimi Hendrix, Santana, Pat Metheny, Steve Kimock, John Coltrane, Elvis Costello, Isaac Hayes, Carlos Santana, David Grisman.
After twenty years of fairly strict vegetarianism I've started eating meat again. I started with fish and poultry but I've worked my way up to occasionally grilling steaks as of the end of this summer. Italian, Thai, Mexican and Japanese food all frequently make their way into the rotation. There's not much that beats a well executed Thanksgiving turkey dinner.
