Luckily, I'm reentering a phase in my life where I love books
again, having just left the hallowed hell of higher learning.
Favorites atm are:
Greg Egan- Permutation City
Richard Caro- The Passage of Power
Octavia Butler - Lilith's Brood
Julia Cameron- The Artist's Way
Walter Mosley- When the Thrill is Gone
Haruki Murakami- The Wind-up Bird Chronicle
Natsuo Kirino- Real World
This list is a cross-section of my interests in sci-fi+fantasy,
political theory + history, aesthetics + mindfulness, mysteries,
and urban lit. My Aldiko reader has many half-started books by the
likes of Sontag, Postman, Roach, Agan, Nead, and Nixon. I get a
kick out of pretending to be smart. It's kind of like that old rule
from testing, that a random choice has to be right at least 25% of
the time. Or was it 50%? I skipped statistics in high school, so I
honestly don't know.
Also, I love to listen to movies/tv while I'm working on a project.
Favorites include Fringe, Lie To Me, Peep Show, Home Movies,
Samsara, and Orphan Black.
Musical tastes range from Citizen Cope, to Cee-lo Green. Art, on
the other hand, is my passion. Bansky Politics, Warhol Films,
Duchamp's Sinks. I like how symbols give form, if not completely
function, to art.
Films such as Predestination make my brain ich. So many
assumptions! Primer is another that seemed decent, but I've only
watched it partway before turning to something else. I spent more
time in looking up the timelines and synopsis than watching the
actual movie. My real love is bombastically overpriced and
slick-looking movies by Scorsese, Coppola and the occational
As for food, if its delicious, I have an open mind.
