Without question, Vonnegut has been and will always be my favorite
writer. He introduces me to pleasure reading when i was young, and
years later when i began to read in earnest again, it was his works
that reminded me how amazing a well crafted story can be....that
deeply profound ideas can come in deceptively simple
Lately I’ve been reading a lot of China Mieville and Iain
Banks...gogo world building. Game of Thrones is probably the next
big project though, since i’ve realized that waiting 42 weeks for a
new season is just too long a wait for my impatient ass. I love
raiding my parents attic for postwar literary goodies complete with
faded covers and dried out, brittle yellow pages. I really love the
tactile feel of reading a book, and despite the convenience, an
e-reader just can’t reproduce that feeling.
I love way too many movies, I am equally comfortable talking about
why Citizen Kane really is the greatest or quoting 'Meet the
Feables' and relishing in the non-stop gore of Evil Dead, Dead
Alive, and the rest of the splatter comedy oeuvre. Without a doubt
the Original Trilogy, Lord of the Rings, Pi, Requiem for a Dream.
Anything Guillermo Del Toro gets his hands on, Kubrick, Children of
Men, Suspiria, Oldboy. Anything and everything good, whether it be
high or low brow.
I have a huge soft spot for some of those cheesy as hell one offs
that BER occasionally plays: Hemingway, Docterin' the Tardis, the
evil dead song, Drinkin in LA, Teenage Dirtbag, and on.
