My taste in music varies quite a lot. As most people, it depends on my mood and also of the context... and taste never stays stagnant. Taste develops as fast as a new song comes out...

I went through the 13 yr old boyband craze, which was terribly fun :D but it's just about gone now, except for a few relapses whenever I hear AJ sing in 'Shape of my heart' ^_^. These days, I listen to latino music, like spanish guitar, which led me to discover Pop Latino, which mixed my two favorite styles... and then, there's always alternative, which has its own interesting sides (how can anyone hate Maroon 5?). My least favorite type of music would include rap, some hip-hop, the so-called Christian rock (whoever came up with that idea???). A little bit of aria and baroque music is nice every now and then (Handel's Messiah is such a great masterpiece). Then, there are always exceptions, I tip my hat off to Eminem, I don't like rap, but you have to respect the guy. And for some very odd reason, I like Green Day and some Fall out Boy. No comments.




Anything that has me on the edge of my seat will do. Actually, no horror movies please. I'd like to keep my sanity, and not too many love/romance movies either, I just might turn to mush after watching too many of those... I love intense movies, those that have me scream of excitement... The movies that make me think philosophically kinda go lower down my favorites list...



I can’t exactly say that I have a favorite book, because it depends, but I can definitely tell you that I am immensely fond of Alexandre Dumas these days. I am a big fan of mystery and among this list, I would include the inventor of my favorite series, Arsène Lupin, Maurice Leblanc, A. Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, the Hercule Poirot series by Agatha Christie and Erle Stanley Gardner's Perry Mason. My least favorite writer would either be Charles Dickens or among the ones I had to read for American Literature class such as Edith Wharton, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry David Thoreau and such… yuck

And since I never grew up when it comes to reading, I still enjoy just about any comic published by Casterman. I also grew up reading Bibliothèque Verte and Bibliothèque Rose, which are two very splendid French children’s book collections.


If I were not to count Michelangelo in my list, Nathan Greene would be my favorite artist. I think he is the bet thing that could have happened to the art world :p I can’t appreciate abstract art, no matter how high experts praise it (seriously, why would I pay $28,000 for a piece of yellow canvas? whatever happened to logic?). I can’t value Pollock, most of Picasso's work, (I don't understand what makes Edvard Munch's The Scream so great), new art theories like cubism, expressionism, surrealism and such. I like traditional art, especially late Victorian era art. For that period, James Tissot would be my favorite artist, along with Jean Béraud, Manet, Renoir, Bouguereau and definitely including early Victorian era painter Ingres. But overall, the best artists are found in the Renaissance and Baroque periods, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Titian, Rubens, Watteau and the list goes on...
