I really loved reading "The Iron Heel" and "To build a fire" (and
other short stories) (Jack London
). I also love
"L'étranger" and "La chute" (Albert Camus
). There is a lot of
books I loved and it's always difficult for me to pick up my
"favorite". I could maybe mention "The Naked Lunch" by William S.
, "En attendant Godot" (Samuel Beckett
). "Le Roman
Inachevé" (Louis Aragon
) moved me a lot, as
well as some works by André Breton
. Lately, I
discovered Raymond Carver
and Haruki Murakami
With movies it will become even more difficult. I'd say most of
(especially Dr. Strangelove and Barry Lindon), Some like it Hot
(Billy Wilder), M (Fritz Lang
), La question humaine
(Nicolas Klotz), maybe Fargo (Coen bros.), I do appreciate
a lot too (Dead Man, Ghost Dog, Broken Flowers...)... Probably many
more. More recently, I could see Two Lovers and Tokyo Sonata which
are definitely among my favourite ones.
Music... Ok, now it's impossible. I do love music. Usually I like
unexpected, surprising music. From indian classical
to the most
confusing noisy breakcore (ah Venetian Snares...). I'm really not
into a unique "genre". Not because I like everything, not at all.
Because I'm just too curious and sensitive to a wide variety.
However I guess I should say I love John Coltrane
, Dave Holland,
Stevie Wonder (not everything though), Dick Annegarn
, Antipop Consortium,
Wu-Tang Clan, Rocé
, Deerhoof, Bélà Bartok
Janaçek, Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Bismillah Khan, Ahmed Jan Thirakwa,
Jean-Louis Matinier. Tuvan, javanase, balinese, pygmee traditional
UPDATE: I haven't discovered so many new things, recently. Come and
help me with that!
One last for TV shows. I've watched too much of them. But I'll just
keep a few for here. Six Feet Under, Riget (The Kingdom), Twin
Peaks, The Shield, these are the top favorite. I guess I could add
The Wire, Oz, Party Down, Flight of the Conchords, Dead Set and why
not Babylon 5 (quite a long time ago, though).
