I haven't been reading as much as Id like to, but in my defense,
Ive branched out, so I think that counts for something. I'll just
toss out some of my favorite authors.
Neruda, ee Cummings, Kafka, Whitman, Ronald Howard, HP Lovecraft,
CS Lewis, Asimov, Doyle.
I think Ayn Rand is a stupid person's idea of a clever person. Read
the journal entry I wrote entitled "Chicken Pot Pie" if I haven't
made this clear enough.
I know that isn't many, but its certainly enough without making me
go look at my bookshelf.
The Omega Man, Shaft, Orgasmo, Il Postino, Tapeheads, The Onion
Movie, The Kentucky Fried Movie, Enter the Dragon, The Good, the
Bad, and the Ugly, The Dark Crystal, Mad Max & The Road Warrior
(I have mixed feelings about the third one), A Boy and His Dog,
Bonus points if you could identify the thinly hidden theme in the
Television: Watch an episode or two of the show "Trailer Park
Boys". If you adore it, we'll get along ever so well. If you dont,
I really dont know what the hell is wrong with you. It's Always
Sunny in Philadelphia, Reno 911. Spartacus ; graphic violence,
kinky sex, and amazing costuming. What more would I want in a
Elvis Costello, Echo and the Bunnymen, Belle and Sebastian, The
Cure, Johnny Cash, Hank 1 & 3, Neil Diamond, The Clash,
Kraftwerk, Ben Folds, Tears for Fears, Cracker, Nina Hagen,
Morrissey & The Smiths, Judas Priest, Iggy Pop, Pulp.
(or anything else in any way associated with Mike Patton and his
genius), Kraftwerk, Mark Lanegen.
I find Randy Newman insufferable.
Food. I'll try anything once. Seriously. I got some canned silkworm
once at a Korean grocery store. Revolting isn't a strong enough
word. I shy away from meat of indeterminate origin; I don't approve
of the industry more than Im concerned for my health.
I could live off 4 meals a day of Indian. Jamaican, certain Italian
dishes, a fair share of Mexican, most any Central or Southern
American dish, Southern Food. Anything cooked with love. Heh. I
have a higher metabolism than I really care for, so if you feed me,
I'll probably like you.
