Recently - the best new films I've seen recently have all been
aimed at kids or 'family' audiences. I'm not sure, but I think it
may be an indicator that Hollywood is dying on its arse.
I get too busy to watch TV regularly - but I'm absolutely not a tv
snob, and when I have a chance for a tv binge I'll take it. Good
things like Parks and Rec to 'bad' things like the Voice.
Currently watching everything Louis CK has ever done and then
watching it again. (Yes I also watched breaking bad like everyone
else) and GIRLS. I have a fantasy that Lena Dunham could save
Hollywood if she ever writes something that isn't about her.
Music- 6 music is usually on at work, very rarely I'll hear
something new I like. Like that really bitter but upbeat John Grant
one ('etch-a-sketch your way out of this one reject') I also like
that white denim one where they pretend the last 50 years of music
Mostly electronic music, 90s music, and my dad's record collection.
Cream, dusty Springfield, fleetwood mac, sly stone. Blur, Pulp,
early suede, elastica, kenickie. (yes i still listen to kenickie)
wu tang, dre/snoop. PJ Harvey. Four tet, squire of gothos, ceephax
acid crew, modeselektor. Jungle, old school hardcore, some techno,
juke/footwork/booty bass. Acid acid acid acid. Loads of 90s and 00s
rnb - destiny's child, JT, mary j, soft spot for Mariah. Really
like a lot of Malian music, bassekou kouyate etc. afrobeat. Oh yeah
and I liked William onyeabor before damo said it was cool so
I love food markets, new restaurants. All sorts. I don't mind
spending too much money on good food.
I really like going to the theatre. Best/most interesting I saw
recently was Orpheus by The Little Bulb theatre company.
