I tend to enjoy dissonance, and music which leaves a strong
emotional impact (of whatever kind). I like music I can sink into.
I'll tend to get one snippet of a track snagged in my head, at any
In terms of composers, I can't get enough of Dvořák. Suggestions of
similar would be warmly welcomed. :)
Other than work, I mostly read articles. I especially enjoy
anything about gender politics, especially materialist
Also, Neoplatonism (Plotinus, Porphyry, Iamblichus, Proclus, the
Cappadocian Fathers...that early stuff).
My favourite show is Wicked. I have a long spiel about how it's all
about Reagan's America, the life and absorption of grunge, and the
impotency of individual-centred protest, which I'd love to bore you
Films / TV
When I watch TV, I tend to binge whole series. Most recently was
The Wire. I also generally lack the attention span to view
something unless I'm with someone, but I'm happy to when that's the
case. So, viewing buddies are definitely appreciated. :)
Recent films I've enjoyed are Brick, Angel-A, and Requiem For A
Tofu, macaroni cheese, spinach, avocado, polenta.
