As I said on the other thread, I like the Star Wars prequels. All of them.

I also greatly enjoy watching cartoons. You can shove your gritty, deep and/or meaningful dramas somewhere dark; an evening of The Simpsons, Phineas and Ferb, Teen Titans Go, Futurama, Family Guy, We Bare Bears and so on suits me just fine [Big Grin]

I love animated films. I can't wait to see "Coco". I've enjoyed "The Incredibles", "Up!", "The Red Turtle", "The Book of Life", Tim Burton animation, and I even got a kick out of the Lego movies. My best movie bud likes movies adult and indie so I see a lot of serious stuff, but I go with a friend who likes simple pleasures to see my animated features.

I love cartoons. I'm also a sucker for - struggling for the apposite adjective - comedies, the ones that are sort of the opposite of things like Friends - Bottom, Peep Show, Lead Balloon, Outnumbered, Inbetweeners. It probably comes as no surprise that I spend much of Christmas morning reading the Viz annual I traditionally get.

I enjoy The Three Stooges.

Also A A Milne's children's poems - dated, twee and precious though they might be.

Who hasn't wondered "how God began"?

Asserting aseity, and telling you that it is a meaningless question (like "What was there before the Big Bang?"), sounds like a cop out.

AA Milne fought in World War 1 and came back with shell-shock. A number of recent commentators have suggested that the poems and stories are his attempts to relate to his son. Just knowing he was a WW1 survivor makes his writings far more poignant.

A couple of days ago I saw the current film which concerns itself with some of these issues.

It's what got me thinking about Milne.

I like Blossom Dearie.

I also like Disney's Fantasia, especially the Night on a Bare Mountain/Ave Maria section. A shame the music tape was reused by the audio engineers. Leopold Stowkowski is my favourite conductor.

I only really know ‘Bruce’ but that’s hilarious.

Fantasia is my favourite film. I sat silent and transfixed by it in the cinema aged 4, and then asked for years if we could see ‘the dancing mushrooms film’ (pre-video age!)

To make this a real UO, can I add that I also love Fantasia 2000, particularly the ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ section.

Enoch - you have something there.

Music: anything except C&W. I like singing folk. The Celtic folk scene is really good now with Celtic Connection s in Glasgow, Lorient in Brittany etc. But then I also like Schostakovitch, Tchaikovshy, Copeland, Bernstein, Bartok and Kaodaly and opera - especially Russian; early music - big yes. Klezmer, especially the group "She'koya" You can keep Beethovan, Elger and Wagner though.

Brussels sprouts: not overcooked and served with butter and mashed up nuts.
Red cabbage (German style) with venison, roatsies, chestnut puree and the works (our Christmas dinner).
Fish but not oysters (yuck). Nothing beats good fresh fish & chips.
Haggis, neeps and tatties. Tomorrow night. Anyone know where I can buy a proper haggis in Cardiff - not a plastic wrapped sausage one?

I like a lot of the songs from musical theatre, though not so much the performances themselves.

And I like the taste of flat soda-pop, especially coke.

Me too, especially the smart, sassy ones set in hip urban centres(to quote the movie ads). I don't really care for straightforward romance. I think it needs a good splash of comedy to chase it down.

A note re: Sen-Sens (I didn't expect my post to generate so much discussion!) - they were more than licorice. They have some kind of spices, too. I'm pretty sure they contain patchouli, in fact, and the fact that as a kid, my dad ate Sen-Sens and I smelled them on him probably accounts for the fact that I wear patchouli oil every day now. (My tag-line on my facebook profile is "Patchouli-scented".) In fact, I hate black licorice; I love Sen-Sens despite their being licorice-based. So, sadly, most licorice drops or similar candy won't do as a substitute.

Re: Horehound, I love it. It tastes more like rootbeer than licorice to me, and I don't care for rootbeer.

I like beer. Amber to dark beers with lots of malt and fragrant but subdued hop character, preferably a good old Goldings or Fuggles. None of these modern IPAs that taste like an infusion of grapefruit pith. Much prefer beer to wine. Had Christmas dinner once with a range of beers matched to each course. Wonderful.

Oh, and beer goes much better with cheese than wine does.

Opera is difficult because (for many) of the language barrier. And even if you do know the language, it's hard to understand the lyrics because to the untrained ear it sounds like everyone is screeching.

But opera is the culmination of all the arts rolled together. Those operas I have attended in person, I have enjoyed very much. But I do find it hard to listen to recordings of opera.

I've only ever been to one live ballet, and I did find that interesting.

But I hate beer in any form. I've never understood what people see in it.

I love opera but not many of the modern productions. So often historical stries or settings are wrenched out of their original time and don't work, making the whole thing jar and hard to belief.Eg Khovanchina set in modern times, Don Giovani set in 1980s with drug taking!!!! Ballo Masquera opening with men sitting on toilets - what's that about!As to the sex................! No wonder we can't get kids into classical music at an early age.

I first saw Madama Butterfly (Scottish Opera) when I was 9 and loved it. It was done traditionally, beautifully and was mezmorising. Our son had sections of Rigeletto done by Touring Opera at school when he was 9 and loved it. But when we watched a production from ROH on TV at family viewing time, it opened with a sex scene!! And poor old Rigeletto was dressed like a spider! What was that about? As to historical Handel operas set in classical Roman times with Roman stories being dressed as if they have stepped out of a Sci-Fi movie! Audiences aren't stupid. They can understand historical stories. The directors are full of their own importance, charging huge fees for rubbish production that just titilate the sex drive of people and forget the whole point the composer is making. All they want to do is shock.They don't even appear to read the liberetti and don't care about what the opera is saying. They only want their often warped opinions aired. They can keep it especially at the prices charged in London!(end of rant)

Nowadays I prefer to listen on radio or CD. Mind you Welsh National Opera's Rosenkavalier this year in Cardiff was brilliant. Die Fleadermouse was fun but why did they dress Hungarian dancers as Ottoman courtiers and have them dancing Greek steps. I couldn't help giggling. Still the rest was good.

For those who don't like ballet: have you watched any of Kenneth MacMillan's works (eg Romeo & Juliet, The Invitation, Elite Synocopations, Manon etc)? Try modern ballet or contemporary dance (Yasmin Vardemon, Carolin Finn, Arthur Pita, Merse Cunningham, etc). What about Wayne MacGregor's stuff. Not all all prizzy any of it. Give it a go - check bits on YouTube. You might get hooked.

I have always been a fan. At my school we had to learn a poem by heart each year. Mine were normally drawn from Milne. When my sister and I split up the family home on the death of our father, she got the Milne. I had to make do with the Lewis Carroll.

Whether one agrees with that assessment - I'm not really all that struck by Joni Mitchell - why should that be a slip of the tongue? [Razz]

I like having a short black at a 7/11 in Taylors Lakes. They keep me awake when I'm driving home for another 45 minutes... at least until I get to the hidden-in-plain-sight military testing site/ spy substation about 10 minutes from where I live, when I suddenly feel tired again. I've often wondered whether its the terrible coffee or the orange zest muffin I choose as the least sugary option while still having a muffin that keeps me awake to that point. It might be an emanation from the said secret military/spy base, but I don't experience the effect at other times, so I'm calling it a coffee come-down.

Also, I embarrassed myself at the 7/11 by referring to the owner's son's late-model Mercedes as a BMW. I didn't have the heart to explain that I call all luxury cars BMWs.

*shamefaced* I call cars 'black and shiny' or 'small red car' or 'possibly 4x4'. I can recognise an old VW Beetle, a Ford Prefect and a red Lamborghini. If it has no roof it is a cabriolet.


I like the idea of Advent more than the reality because it coincides with festive toxicity.

Snap but I drink both black. I known a few black drinkers who like weak coffee but think I have only ever met one who liked strong tea. So for a subset of the populous that is normal.

The coffee thing is cultural or possibly even doctrinal. I am informed (by my brother-in-law the Lutheran pastor) that Lutherans water their coffee to ensure that it's weak enough. Could this be heresy?

That would be what I call "church strength". I Fight the Good Fight for strong coffee in church.

I find that in Anglican circles the good coffee is at the top of the candle. Unfortunately for me my Anglicanism is subterranean.

Our church coffee is on the weak side for me, although it is coffee, not that fake stuff marked "instant." I am told that it is weak because some have complained it was too strong. The words, "add water," seem to have no meaning there.

Gibson's best solid body electric guitars, and therefore the best in the world, are the Firebird and SG.

Clearly some would not agree, going by the sales of an overweight, overcomplicated, thing designed by a 1950s Jazz player.
