Movies: I have a list of 100 for your edification. It was here for
a long time but people would run into a huge wall of text and stop
reading. I will merrily send it if you want.
Music: Rock-n-roll with an Alternative bent, Techno in a pretty
broad definition, Jazz—Miles and Coltrane especially. I’m sort of
restless in wanting new music, both brand new music and old music I
haven’t heard. There’s not enough good new HARD rock. This
immediate instant I’m listening to Neon Indian’s Era Extrana album.
It’s seriously good.
Stuff I've listened to this past week: DJ Terry Mullan mix,
Sasha/Digweed mix, Buzzcocks, Ramones, Bob Dylan, Boyfrendz, Black
Moth Super Rainbow, Beck (new album), Unknown Mortal
APHEX TWIN: I've been a huge fan for years. I'm blissfully swimming
in the 11 and a half hours of new music he put online for free--
Shows: Shameless, House of Cards, Fringe, Breaking Bad (Finished
season 4.), Fargo, True Detective, Game of Thrones (Albeit, I'm
behind.), Ray Donovan, Craig Ferguson on a regular basis. All-time
classics: Twin Peaks, Battlestar Galactica reboot, Star Trek:TOS,
The Sopranos, Dexter, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, The Prisoner,
the orginal Not Ready For Prime Time Players SNL.
Books: Primarily genre fiction. Sci-fi, Fantasy, Horror, Crime.
Outside of that, it tends to be writers who are viewed as
transgressive, at least they were in their time. Some poetry. I
adore getting lost in a book like few things in life. But I've been
concentrating so hard on writing lately that, in my mind, I edit
anything I read. This profile? Every sentence in it has been combed
over at least a half dozen times.
I LOVE sushi. Obviously there’s more food I like, but going out to
sushi with someone cool would be great. I drink lots of tea.
