Books: Probably my favorite is The Master and
, by Mikhail Bulgakov. I've been reading a ton of
lately, and wishing my brain worked the way his did. The
NYRB Classics collection seems to have an unending supply of
fascinating books that I've never heard of before. My bed has a
little bookshelf in the headboard.
I could talk your ear off about the brilliance of the Moomin
books and Walt
Kelly's Pogo. Honestly, they probably explain more about me than
this page could.
There are huge gaps in my knowledge of movies, especially recent
ones. I usually just check out whatever catches my eye at the
library or Scarecrow. The films that I watch a whole lot tend to
have a sort of hypnotic weirdness - I love Performance, Aguirre:
The Wrath of God, If..., A Canterbury Tale, Out of the Past. I dig
old-school screwball/romantic comedies. I'm a huge fan of Repo Man
but I won't
judge you if you hate it. Does this make me sound like an
unbearable snob? I like lots of stuff, promise!
I have not seen either the Walking Dead or Game of Thrones. Is that
a dealbreaker? Shows I think are rad - Twin Peaks, The Prisoner,
X-Files, The Wire, Homicide, Rocky & Bullwinkle, Carnivale,
Slings & Arrows.
I'm probably overly obsessed with music, yet i never seem to know
the hot bands of the moment. I love Mekons
, Robyn Hitchcock, Brian Eno,
Fleetwood Mac, classic OutKast/Goodie Mob, pop hits from 10 years
ago... I'm really sick of the recent trend of pop songs that are
about having as! much! fun! as! possible! tonight, because we might
die tomorrow. Sometimes you might want to do cool things the next
day, and not have a massive hangover, right?
I might come off like a grumpy old man sometimes.
I am open to most types of food. I need to cook more.
