Wow, this category is a whopper...
BOOKS: I’m not sure why, but I’ve always loved Russian lit. Pushkin
and Dostoyevsky are my two favs in this category. Outside of that,
it’s hard to narrow down.
Last three books read at time of profile writing:
In Cold Blood – Capote
Blood Meridian – Cormac McCarthy
‘Three Russian Women Poets’ – various artists
In general I like classics, foreign movies, indie films, and….I
hesitate to add…I have a weakness for sci-fi flicks. Cheesy
comedies and the hilariously low-budget are fun too.
A few that come to mind are Chinatown, Trainspotting, Bladerunner,
Brazil, almost anything by Kubrick, the Sergio Leone Westerns, the
great escape, cool hand luke, any Truffaut, Godard,
Bergman….Dolemite, 80’s john cusack + brat pack movies, and on and
Recently, I’ve been revisiting Alison Goldfrapp and Air (although,
I’m not sure how I feel about their most recent album). Still
listening to Twin Shadow, Tame Impala, Unknown Mortal
I love to sing along with The Divine Comedy or The Magnetic Fields.
Any brit-pop is great too (Pulp, Blur, etc). Depending on my mood,
bowie, velvet underground, the kinks or the pixies are always in
the rotation. And of course, I’m a sucker for the canon of rock n’
roll: beatles, stones, Hendrix, zeppelin, cream, floyd, etc.

Only one show matters to me…Peep Show. Check it out.
OK, that’s a lie. Twin Peaks, also. That gum you like is going to
come back in style.
