My taste in movies tends towards foreign, small budget films (I
watch a lot of American movies, too). Recently, it's tended towards
small European or Asian productions, or films from lesser known
markets, like Algeria or Turkey. I am also always up for watching a
movie made in Iran. Then, there's the stand-bys like Korea, Japan
(Studio Ghibli), Hong Kong, Belgium (I love the Dardenne
brothers)....In docs, I tend to prefer innovative storytelling
techniques....Bus 174, Stevie. I'm still on a quest for someone who
really loves Ozu.
I guess my taste goes towards either small, human movies or
overblown ridiculous comedies. Warning: I do go to talking animal
Musically, I'm an omnivore. Obscure African cassettes (traditional,
pop and hip hop), devotional music of all types, bop, classical
(especially piano and minimalism), early punk, southern soul, funk,
cajun, old honky tonk, metal, pop, folk music from everywhere,
Hawaiian music of all eras.....believe me the list goes on forever.
I finally got rid of my cassettes this year, now I only have 78's,
45's, LP's, CD's and MP3's. But when I pull out that perfect 45 and
put it on the hi-fi.....magic.
If you love African hip hop, check this out:
I love dance of all sorts.
Books: I plead omnivore again. Pretty much anything except romance
novels or really self-important books. Reading is so important to
me. I still find time to read fiction or poetry. If you inspire me,
I may even whisper Ronsard in your ear in the original Middle
