The Grateful Dead, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sigur Ros ...
definitely, Sigur Ros ... Enya, Miles Davis, Sting and The Police,
David Lanz, good ambient grooves on Internet stations. I'm always
open to quality music and if you're listening to something awesome,
Pink Floyd, excellent classic prog-rock that opens the mind.
Want to get more into folk/americana also.
Simon & Garfunkel are profoundly poetic. Question: who is
The Yellow Submarine by The Beatles is excellent.
Classical can be intensely moving or aesthetically difficult,
depending on the piece and my mood. Atonality tends to be harsh to
my ears. Generally I find most classical to be rather melancholy. I
think classical captures the condition of the society from which it
emerges, and it's difficult to separate the music from cultural
Jazz is great.
Ulysses, by James Joyce, is perhaps the greatest novel ever written
and contains many of the core truths of reality. Aristotle. Maurice
Merlot-Ponty. Heidegger. Heisenberg. Hitchhiker's Guide to the
Galaxy. The enigmatic Kafka. The dreams of Woolf. Anything by
Gilles Deleuze although it's difficult to read in light of the
revolutionary potential of his ideas and wondering if they will
ever bear fruit.
Dietarily, I like to eat healthy when I am able to. Quinoa is
great. I like vegetables. I don't like hamburgers.
In general I can't stand modern television although there are a few
exceptions such as Third Rock From the Sun. Used to be into Star
Trek but mostly it's only watchable to laugh at anymore. The films,
however, are excellent. The original films, before they ruined it
with the Borg.
Classics like The Twilight Zone of course are interesting, if only
for the sake of critique. Ideally I'd really rather not watch TV.
