Movies: I am a gay man of a certain age so films like Now, Voyager, Mildred Pierce, Stella Dallas, etc...are favorites. Film Noir is a favorite genre. All that Heaven Allows, Imitation of Life, Written on the Wind and anything else by Douglas Sirk. Fellini, Fassbinder, Allen are all favorite film-makers. Anyone who knows the Japanese classics by Ozu, Mizoguchi, Naruse, etc...gets extra credit!
I also watch and enjoy some recent Hollywood stuff, it's like pizza, cupcakes and other junk food.
Shows: My favorite television shows are I Love Lucy, the Honeymooners, the Munsters, and anything else I watched in repeats as a child. I also enjoy documentaries, true-crime shows and nature programs.
My favorite Broadway musicals are Gypsy, Fun Home, Follies and Cabaret. I'm a Albee fan and also love the classics. I have to see anything Mark Rylance, Judith Light or Andrea Martin does....very different but I love them,
Music: Female vocalists with BIG voices, 70s and 80s music and classical music. Opera is a new passion.
Food: I love good food. French and Italian are my favorite cuisines, but far from the only ones that I enjoy. Sometimes heavier German and Scandinavian food hits the spot. Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, really just about every Asian cuisine is great to me. A hamburger or steak on a grill is hard to beat.
