Books: Philip K. Dick is my favorite author. Vonnegut, Eco, Adams,
Calvino and Bulgakov are not far behind. I attempt to read Pynchon
every so often when I feel I need to be taken down a peg. Still
haven't made it past page 50 of Gravity's Rainbow. Please, someone
explain that book to me.
Recently finished Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. Harry Potter
for people who actually like to read.
Currently reading Oryx & Crake and Laina Dawes' book about
black women in the metal/punk/hardcore scenes. Up next is The
Movies: The American Astronaut, Airplane!, The Warriors, Sunshine,
Black Dynamite, Robocop, 13 Assassins, Ghost in the Shell, Raiders
& Last Crusade, anything with Keanu Reeves. I don't know why,
but I have an all-abiding love for that man. I'll also watch a
documentary about anything astronomy or physics related. Especially
if Michio Kaku is in it. Mad Max rules all. But the way to my
cinematic heart is and shall ever be paved with Shaw Bros. kung fu
flicks, slow-burn samurai epics, and Mel Brooks movies.
I found a copy of Highlander for $5 today at Target. Don't go
looking for it. At that price, there can be only one.*
Music: Anything good. Last three great purchases:
Failure: The Heart is a Monster
Chelsea Wolfe: Abyss (love love LOVE Chelsea)
Dr. Yen Lo (Ka & Preservation): Days With Dr. Yen Lo
I love everything from Motown to bluegrass, but my true musical
loves are 90s hip-hop and underground/experimental metal. I know
that's probably a turn-off, but so's you liking Mumford & Sons.
We'll muddle through. Probably with the help of Queens of the Stone
Age & Kendrick.
Shows: The State, Mr. Show, Snuff Box, Black Mirror, The Mighty
Boosh, Luxury Comedy, QI, Black Adder, A Bit of Fry & Laurie,
Father Ted, Black Books, Jam, Darkplace, The League of Gentlemen,
Inside No. 9, Charlie Brooker's Weekly Wipe, Justified, Sons of
Anarchy, Black Jesus, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Bob's Burgers, Archer,
Home Movies, Metalocalypse...lots more. Love anime, but I'm very
selective. Rick and Morty is the best show on television. Doctor
Who for damaged people. Not that I'm damaged. Cough.
Food: Yer damn right.
