-Books: Goncharov-Oblomov, Gogol-The Nose, Erofeev-
Moscow-Petushki, Gazdanov-Night Roads, Fallada-The Drunkard,
Ionescu-Rhinoceros....anything that deals either with the actual
reality or which really absurd, so it can't pretend to do that.
This excludes any kind of "historical" novels ( which I, being
historian, regard as nuisance) and fantasy. Oh, and I happen to
love original satire such as http://stuffwhitepeoplelike.com
- Music: Rock ( both Classic and Post-Rock) ,20's, 60's, 70's,
80's, Classical ( Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert ( most of all)
, Schumann, Grieg...rather piano), Metal ( Black and "Post-Black"
like Alcest and Amesoeurs) any many other things. I have quite a
broad taste in music I like, however, what's on the radio is mostly
not my cup of tea.
-Food: well, let's say anything, although I prefer hearty things.
I'm a very adventurous eater that tries anything at least once but
who also appreciates good old German cuisine. I love eating,
cooking and anything that deals with food.
I don't mind something vegetarian once in a while, but I guess
fanatics on this behalf won't have fun with me.
-Movies: Die Feuerzangenbowle, Texas-Doc Schneider hält die Welt in
Atem, Ödipussi, Annie Hall ( Woody Allen is hillarious..), Falling
Down, Stalker, Tod eines Schülers, Die Verrohung des Franz
Blum...mostly serious stuff, although I like absurd movies and some
comedy aswell, and NO contemporary German movies.
-Shows: None. I consider TV a nuisance which will hopefully die out
