HOMESTUCK. Seriously, read it. It's the best thing in the history
of all things existing ever
(It's a webcomic about four kids saving the universe and trying to
grow up. Something between Philip K. Dick and James Joyce and with
I really love graphic novels, like Frank Miller, Alan Moore, Neil
Gaiman, Marjana Sartrapi,, Alison Bechdel, Daniel Clowes or Charles
Burns. Tank Girl rocks!
My favorite writer is probably Klaus Mann, I generally enjoy
(mostly German) fiction from the early 20. century, like Franz
Kafka, Else Lasker-Schüler, Erich Maria Remarque, Wolfgang
Borchtert, but also non-German writers like Oscar Wilde, Truman
Capote, John Updike, existentialist fiction from Sartre, Camus and
de Beauvoir, the plays of Berthold Brecht, Sarah Kane or Elfriede
Jelinek. Plus, some beatnik stuff, mostly William Bourrougs.
I started reading "Tales of the City" and now I can't stop.
The great epics of science fiction and fantasy, like Rowling and
Tolkien ans Song of Ice and Fire and Douglas Adams and what have
you. Terry Pratchett and Stanislaw Lem and early distopic fiction,
like Newromancer or the works of Philip K. Dick.
And fanfiction. The gay kind of fanfiction.
In non-fictional literature, I focus mostly on critical theory and
feminism. I force myself to read Marx' and Engel's "Das Kapital",
because I know it's important to read, but far more annoying than
the beautiful language of Theodore W. Adorno, and, right now, i'm
obsessed with siegfried kracauer. he's the best. Other writers of
the critical theory I've read and read are Walter Benjamin, Max
Horkheimer and books of current writers standing within the
tradition of critical theory, like Moishe Postone, Stephan Grigat
or Gerhardt Scheit. Furthermore, I enjoy the subject of Sigmund
Freud's ideas on psychoanalysis, or the Guy Debord's "La société du
specacle". On feminist theory, I'm focusing on a lot of porn
studies now, especially the books of Linda Williams. Otherwise, I
own some works of Nancy Fraser, Judith Butler (although I disagree
with most of hers), Iris Marion Young, and some German marxist
feminists like Ursula Beer, Roswitha Scholz, Ilse Bindseil, or
Last but not least, as a fan of music, I own several books about
pop and a critical theory of pop and punkrock.
Because one day, I want to tell some drunk boys and girls with
spiked hair they are all heirs of the situationist theory and
Movies? Eh. Casablanca because everybody loves Rick Blaine.
Bruce LaBruce's films, and those of Monty Python and Tim
STAR WARS. The old ones of course.
The way we were as the only movie that makes communist girls
Mary and Max.
Train of Life.
Delicatessen by Jean-Jacques Jeunet.
Gaspar Noè's movies.
Fried green tomatoes.
The 1966' Batman.
And I loved "Howl".
Plus, I appreciate stupid stoner-movies sometimes, like "Dude
where's my car" or "Euro Trip", and animated films!
And the Marvel-Movies.
i recently developed the hobby of getting really stoned, watching
movies like "troll 2" or "manos - the hand of fate" and write
pseudo-intellectual critics about those movies.
you didn't know "troll 2" is actually a deeply disturbing metaphor
on repressed sexuality, did you?
Sex and the City. Okay, shut up.
Orange is the new Black
next on the list are "farscape", "battlestar galactica" and finally
And I can get a little bit emotional over fictional couples.
Food: Fuck yeah, pasta. I love pasta. And Indian currys, and a lot
of food as long as there is fish in it.
Video games: I mostly enjoy playing RPGs, especially the ones made
by Bioware (Baldur's Gate II will be my most favourite game of all
times). Right now I spend too much time playing "The old
And about my music taste? Well, there are two kind of tastes in
music. My one and the wrong one.
I like early German new wave and punkrock, also current German
punkrock and hardcore (but the intelligent type of punk, not that
three chords-All Cops Are Bastard-kind of crap), Riot Grrrl, early
Hardcore and Emocore (I prefer Minor Threat over Agnostic Front and
Jawbreaker over Dashboard Confessionals), post-punk like Joy
Division, early British punkrock, some crustcore...
Also independent pop like The Smiths, The Shins or The Submarines,
Singers like Kate Nash or Regina Spektor and some female hiphop,
for example artists like Lady Sovereign or Peaches.
You couldn't use the names of the punk bands anyway, because you've
probably never heard of them ;)
Well, and if I decide to go out dancing, I prefer the electronic
type of music.
