Books (authors): Friedrich Nietzsche
Bataille, Max Stirner, Albert Camus. Mostly my tastes range towards
philosophical non-fiction of the 'continental' variety, though, of
course, the distinction between what is true and false becomes
quite irrelevant in that genre. I'm also into speculative horror:
Clive Barker and Poppy Z. Brite are both amazing.
Movies: Anything horrific. The trashier (or, on the other end of
the spectrum, the more artistically done), the better. I'm also
fond of neo-noir - films like 'Bound', which is the only Wachowski
sibling film worth seeing, 'Blue Velvet', 'Dark City', and scores
and scads of others.
Television: I prefer my television like my tea - British. If you
know what Garth Marenghi's Darkplace is, or have ever seen a full
episode of Red Dwarf, please message me, I want to congratulate you
for being amazing.
90s pop. Do you know Sinead O'Connor? You ought to. She penned and
sang these lyrics:
"I remember the day the young man came
Said, "Your Jackie's gone, he got lost in the rain"
And I ran to the beach, and laid me down
"You're all wrong," I said, and they stared at the sand
"That man knows that sea like the back of his hand
He'll be back some time, laughing at you"
Show me another woman who sings with such passion and I will show
you a woman who I love.
Other than that, I'm very into industrial, darkwave, post-punk, and
metal. I had a long list of bands I enjoy, but to be honest, you
don't really care. I listen to a *lot* of music - several hundred
bands. If you want to discuss the intricacies of the metal
subgenres or their relation to other morbid music floating around
the cultural aether, then message me.
