"The Unconsoled", "When We Were Orphans" (Kazuo Ishiguro)
"Ghostwritten", "Number9Dream" (David Mitchell)
"Fables" (Bill Willingham). Many other comics. David Sedaris.
First six that spring to mind...
"Comparison is Violence or the Ziggy Stardust Meets Tiny Tim
Songbook" (Taylor Mac), "Eraritjaritjaka" (Heiner Goebbels),
"An Oak Tree" (Tim Crouch), "Jerusalem" (Jez Butterworth) - would
love it more minus the kidz, "Legally Blonde" (yes),
"Mother Courage & Her Children" (the Fiona Shaw one).
Angel, Buffy, Firefly (yes, I put Angel first, wooo), Twin Peaks,
Arrested Development, Community, Breaking Bad, Six Feet Under,
Great British Bake Off. And Rupaul's Drag Race.
Which I am obsessed with at the moment:
Answer Me This, The Bugle, Risk! (which is my current favourite),
This American Life, Radiolab, Comedy Bang Bang.
I like anything that's wholehearted and sort of honest. I love
Philip Glass (epic and unabashed), Arcade Fire (sad, angry, witty,
hungry), Verdi (sculptural and gaunt), Dolly Parton (totally
dayglo), Wagner (evil but...), David Bowie (prophet), Steeleye Span
(close harmony barrage), Labrinth (clever boy), Andre 3000 (clever
as a demon), Antony Hegarty (gutwrenching), Prince (ridiculous sex
sparrow from space), and so on and so on. Also non-shit
I would love someone to explain to me the appeal of Belle and
