I recently watched Citizen Four. I put it up there as one of the
scariest films I've seen. The other is "Enron: the smartest guys in
the room". For an educational night in watch Michael Daisy's
monologue on corporations followed by enron.
BOOKS: The last book that had me in stitches was a confederacy of
dunces. Absolutely classic! ive been smashing out some Raymond
Chandler recently and now some Alain De Botton. I love Raymond's
colourful language in a 'Long Goodbye', but the rest of it is
largely pulp fiction.
I used to read heaps of sci fi so some of favoruites have been
Dune, Enders Game, Foundation. But I like books where I learn
things, the invisible gorilla, text books, etc.
SHOWS/TV: don't watch TV or for the overly logical programs
intended for TV but watched on the computer. I did room early like
the mighty Boosh though.
MUSIC: most my music collection is stuck in the 1990's: Massive
Attack, Beck, Faith No More, Radiohead, Beastie Boys, DJ Shadow,
Apollo 440, Kruder and Dorfmiester. Been loving Neil Youngs latest
'Psychedelic Pill', Trentemoller, Dick Diver, Talking Heads.
I enjoy some jazz. Miles Davis, Art Blakey, I don't know if if like
Shubert, Strauss, Tchaikovsky
FOOD: malaysian, hands down. Though cant find a good assam laksa
place in Melbourne. The best i have found is the straights cafe in
Wantirna. Do you know better? I prefer my rustic/peasant style food
to fancy gastronomy. Its about simplicity, taste and nourishment
