Music: i am kind of insane about it. Once, not too long ago, I was
about to put some avant-garde French black metal in the CD player
in my car, but a Justin Timberlake song came on the radio and
stayed my hand. I am pretty sure that that is not a thing that
happens to other people. tl; dr: one could describe my musical
tastes as "broad."
Obsessions right now: Solange, Le1f, BLKHRTS, Pinkish Black, True
Widow, Chelsea Wolfe.
Some enduring favorites: Swans, Joy Division, Blut Aus Nord,
Wovenhand, GY!BE, Pixies.
Books! (And authors.) The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. The
Sparrow. The Name of the Rose. Octavia Butler, Ursula Le Guin,
Virginia Woolf. Rimbaud, Baudelaire and all those ne'er-do-wells.
Harry Potter, ASOIAF, the first couple of books in the Malazan
series. Audre Lorde, Gloria Anzaldua, the maybe three paragraphs of
Irigaray that I properly understood. Edward Said. Lots and lots of
contemporary sf/f authors.

Dead. Heathers! The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Rope. REPO MAN
