Books: I read too many damn books to list 'em off.. My current
obsessive reading subject is Alchemy
and the Black Plague
. I'm a big fan of
Medieval and Renaissance imagery, so this is no surprise. My all
time favorite literary work is still Camus' "The Stranger". I like
straight forward existentialism.
Movies: Pretty much any depressing art house types. Noi the Albino,
Baxter, My Dinner with Andre, May, etc... If it's Icelandic,
pretentious, and bleak, you can bet it's a favorite. I also like to
watch a lot of B horror flicks, love the stuff.
Music: God Speed you Black Emperor, A Silver Mt. Zion Memorial
Orchestra and Tra-la-la band (with choir), The Cure, Current 93,
Morrisey, And One, Leonard Cohen, Mind Static, Just about anything
'80s. Sopor Aeternus (in small prescribed doses), Then of course
all the standards, (Depeche Mode etc...). I also love high-energy
punk/psychobilly and nerd-punk (Dead Milkmen, etc.). Again, my
tastes run pretty wide.
Food: I'm mostly a fiend for Indian foods, with Ethiopian/West
African being favorites as well. Other than that my fondness is for
Korean and Middle Eastern, although my time in New Mexico gave me
the a great appreciation for green chili everything.
I'm also a big fan of DIY herbal teas and liquors, so there's
seldom a shortage of questionably marked bottles of things in the
