I love the movies of Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch and Andrei
Tarkovsky. I'm also a big fan of Studio Ghibli Movies. If you don't
know what I'm talking about, do yourself a favor and watch Spirited
Away (Chihiros Reise ins Zauberland). And Princess Mononoke. And
Totoro. And Grave of the Fireflies. Some other favorite movies
among many others include Apocalypse Now, Lawrence of Arabia, Pi,
Eternal Sunshine on the Spotless Mind, The Big Lebowski, Enter the
Void, Moon, Drive, Koyaanisquatsi and Oldboy.
As for music, I enjoy quite a range of different stuff. Jazz, both
old and new stuff (ever heard of Esbjörn Svensson Trio? You
should), good electronic music, like Aphex Twin, Flying Lotus,
Burial, Massive Attack, Portishead. Ambient in the style of Tim
Hecker or Fennesz.
Good Folk, Singer-Songwriter stuff. (e.g. Nick Drake, Joni
Mitchell, PJ Harvey, Mark Kozelek and the Red House Painters, Lisa
Sometimes Noise-Music, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and other
weepingly sad or dark music for weirdos, Swans, Einstürzende
Neubauten, etc. Experimental stuff. A little bit Metal, a little
bit Psychedelic Rock. Good Hip-Hop. Minimalist music, like Philip
Glass or Steve Reich, and other classical music. And I absolutely
adore Lisa Gerrard and Dead Can Dance!
Yeah,... And much other stuff.
As for shows: Game of Thrones is awesome. The books are even
better. Breaking Bad of course. Not much beyond that.
Books? Don't even get me started... I love Jorge Luis Borges,
Stanislaw Lem, Philip K. Dick, Anthony Burgess, Dostojewski, Joseph
Conrad, Kafka, Beckett, Lewis Carrol, William Somerset Maugham,
Pynchon. The Hitchhikers Guide, Terry Pratchett. But I do admit
that I'm currently reading way less than I used to. I also have
quite an amount of half-read philosophy texts lying around.
I also like avocados. Best fruits on the planet.
