I have a greatly diminished capacity to enjoy books uncritically
owing to an unfortunate run-in with an English degree, but
favourites include Ford Madox Ford, T. S. Eliot, Beckett, Sōseki,
Margaret Atwood, Stevie Smith, Slavoj Žižek, Montaigne, Rabelais,
Ernesto Sabato, Stanislaw Lem, Solzhenitsyn, Mary Wollstonecraft,
and so on.
I love discovering new music, with few enduring favourites. If I
hear it and like it, it'll probably make it into my rotation. At
the moment that's St. Vincent, Destroyer, Tame Impala, Magnetic
Fields, Dirty Projectors, Grimes, Purity Ring, Chromatics,
Tune-Yards, Ariel Pink, Ellen Allien and a bunch of other random
Movies I form more of a connection with. Existential comedy is a
great genre, with Wes Anderson topping the list. Then mostly a
bunch of random films I adore: The Spirit of the Beehive, Last Year
at Marienbad, Brazil, Repo Man, Let the Right One In, Celine and
Julie Go Boating, Marketa Lazarová, Sophie Scholl and The Princess
Episodically speaking, anything strongly character-driven gets me
good: Mad Men, Justified, The Wire, Homeland, Treme,
coughMadeinChelseacough, and Breaking Bad.
