At the weekends, I'm trying to do more hiking and involve myself in more outgoing homosocial activities such as bowls in Causeway Bay.
I seem to read a lot of American fiction. I'm trying to read more European fiction but I'm not sure if a lot isn't lost in translation. I am an aesthetic freak, and I tend to judge writers on expressive ability over content. However, I am not completely oblivious to context. Current and all-time writers I have enjoyed: Leonard Michaels, Nicholson Baker, John Cheever, Raymond Carver, John Updike, James Salter, James Tate, Robert Walser. All men; it must mean something. And Saul Bellow, 'cause I'm bilious like Bellow! 'The Lime Twig' by John Hawkes was the last novel which left me staggering around in a murky haze of wonderment.
In terms of films, I am a fan of the 1970s New Hollywood: Jack Nicholson between 1970 and '76; McCabe & Mrs Miller; Shampoo. Very creative period wherein the influence of a more abstract, ambiguous European arthouse seemed to inform and intoxicate an ailing Hollywood structure leading to many wonderful, aesthetically ballsy films. That and the psychologically realist and supremely indulgent plot-free films of John Cassavetes. Hitchcock's Vertigo. Harmony Korine, Whit Stillman, Hal Hartley, Guy Maddin - plenty of quirky indie auteur stuff from the last twenty years of American cinema. The more austere Gus Van Sant stuff (Elephant). Mike Leigh for a more worthwhile take on British life. Peter Greenaway for his wit and visual acumen.
Todd Solondz's Dark Horse was the last film that blew me away; a timely riposte to all those pro-schlub male fantasy-land films that have been doing the rounds for way too long.
Twin Peaks; I enjoy giving confused waitresses in Hong Kong the Dale Cooper thumbs-up.
I find it stressful trying to committ to a tv series; so many series...
Seinfeld, anything Larry David-related. Nihilistic honest situation comedy which turns bullshit, cliched sitcom tropes on their worn heads!
Quite far ranging. Thanks to youtube I expose myself to new music everyday. I have a predilection for angular, discordant stuff (Fugazi, Slint, etc) though I could be just as happy listening to Steely Dan. I can find value in most things musically (Country, electronic, you name it) - barring maybe the vocals on reggae songs. Sometimes I pay attention to lyrics. I like risks taken, candidness and uneven tones.
Ah, lists. We could be here all day.
Some sort of reading material, even the side of a cereal box.
Some sort of music listening apparatus even if my mp3 player is like listening to a chorus of gnats re-arrange and perform my favourite music.
A spare shirt.
My hands. I'm like a neurotic film-maker waving them around me at all times.
My New Balance runners.
