Currently reading A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again by David Foster Wallace. Also, delving deep into the True Believer by Eric Hoffer. The Stranger by Albert Camus. Murakami.
Favorite song as a child, "Tears of a Clown" by Smoky Robinson. "Ceremony" by New Order has stolen my heart now. "Spinning Away" by Brian Eno and John Cale sets me floating off. I heard Sugar Ray did a version of it...I think I'd be into that. A few other artists sprinkling my lawn - Arthur Russell, Suicide, Antena, Joakim, Jakko Eino Kalevi, John Maus, Hype Williams, HNNY, Suzanne Kraft. The Radio Dept. is my pizza: never gets old.
Favorite shows include the Bachelor and Twin Peaks. They're in sort of a similar genre, so, maybe that's cheating. Freaks and Geeks really made me wish I grew up around the time I was born. Louie brings the lols.
