Movies: Exciting, adventurous, Indiana Jones-ish. Nothing sad. Don't like scary. Can't sit through fantasy, sci-fi or animation. I like funny but not stupid-funny = Meet the Parents, ugh!
Music: if you've been with me for a while you already know I love the Blues. I'm not particularly keen on old timey Blues, though. I like it with a strong beat, funky and greasy. In case you missed my post about the Blues (you can always go back, ya know) you already know that my favorite singer is EG Kight. Also a big fan of Delbert McClinton and Duke Tumatoe. I can not deal with rap or the screaming stuff. Honestly, it stirs up homicidal feelings. I can't be held responsible for my actions if exposed to it for more than 2 minutes.
Television: I like all the crime shows, a few reality programs and Good Morning, America. Don't do sit-coms.
Books: almost exclusively murder mysteries, set in the US and current. It's not like I haven't read other genres, I have - plenty. I like a good story. I like to be swept away (The Help and The Poisonwood Bible) so I will dabble elsewhere but I like the punch and swiftness of a good murder. I love snarky cop humor, too.
So you won't see me standing in line for The Hunger Games listening to heavy metal on my iPod while reading a book about ancient Rome and periodically chatting with someone about a recent episode of How I Met Your Mother.
