I can go for anything by Hugo Matthysen. I like HG Wells, Douglas
Coupland, Herman Brusselmans, Publius Ovidius (Naso), Herman
Portocarero, Gummbah's "Net Niet Verschenen Boeken" and anything by
the Marquis de Sade.
On the mainstream-side: Kubrick did marvelous things. Then, there
are those everybody loves and has seen way to often (Trainspotting,
Requiem for a Dream, Le Fabuleux Destin d' Amelie Poulin, ...). And
Bridget Jones (you can't see that one too often btw). That stuff
will do most of the time.
But there are times one likes a lesser known movie, and there are
some disturbing beauties in great abundance. For example, I enjoyed
watching Bin-Jip, Oldboy, Young People Fucking, Knoflikari, Les
Triplettes de Belleville, Fucking Amal, Shortbus, Gay Niggers from
outer Space, ...
I like to take in a nice theater performance, but I don't go nearly
as often as I'd like to. I can't even remeber the name of the last
one I saw. It was about a guy making noises and recording them with
samplers, and thusly he created an auditory environment for the
audience. Only through sound, he portrayed a journey around the
world. It was quite nice. But something more regular like Kommil
Foo is absolutely splendid as well.
I'm "into" a few tv-shows, mainly for laughs. It's mostly geeky
stuff (Big Bang Theory, Top Gear, Family Guy, American Dad,
Futurama, ...) and British humor (The League of Gentlemen, Monty
Python, Black Books, Blackadder), though I don't denounce our local
productions like Van Vlees en Bloed, Buiten de Zone or Wally in
Space (LavaTV). However, the best tv-show ever remains Spy Groove.
I'm a Californication fan too.
As for music, I enjoy Amy Winehouse, Zita Swoon and everyone in
I love to cook, mostly just "home cuisine", and I'll whip up
something special when entertaining guests. I like foreign food
(Spanish, Chinese, Italian, Turkish, ...).
