The musics - Skrillex was by far the best electronic music show
I've ever attended. Granted, I haven't seen a ton of electronic
music. Just Rusko, Caspa, AJ Slater, Bass Nector . . . yeah, I
think that's it. Savages is the greatest rock and roll band in the
world right now. Godspeed You Black Emperor is my favorite band
overall. Sonic Youth is my favorite rock and roll band and the old
favorites from my youth who will forever hold a special place in my
heart are PJ Harvey, Nick Cave, Kristin Hersh and Mike Patton. I
love electronic music as well (Flux Pavilion, Knife Party, The
Knife, Delta Heavy, Caspa and Rusko all come to mind) A lot of
strange/experimental stuff (John Zorn, Annie Gosfield, Sonic
Youth's SYR series, etc.) Let's see . . . if I put itunes on
shuffle the first ten things that happen are; The Breeders, Bis,
Outkast, Massive Attack, The Red Krayola, Kid Koala, Slayer, Heart,
Sugar and Gary Numan. I tend to tell people that if it's noisy and
annoying I'll probably like it. Oh, and I suppose Beats Antique
could be considered elctronica to a great extent and I've seen them
The books - The Satanic Bible by Anton Lavey is a hoot. After years
of avoiding it, thinking it was all about corny, cliche super-hero
crap, I've grown to LOVE graphic novels. That's all I read lately.
My favorites so far are Daniel Clowes' Daniel Boring, Will Eisner's
The Contract With God Trilogy, Osamu Tezuka's Buddha, the graphic
novel adaptation of Battle Royale and Dennis Cooper/Keith
Mayerson's Horror Hospital Unplugged. Just finished Will Eisner's
Minor Miracles. As far as regular 'ol authors go, we're talkin'
Irvine Welsh, Bukowski, Burroughs, Henry Miller - they're the first
that pop to mind.
The movies - Harmony Korine! Werner Herzog! David Lynch! Todd
Solondz! Paul Thomas Anderson! Stanley Kubrick! Recently saw
Koyaanisqatsi and if you care at all about film you should too.
Recently re-watched Barton Fink and Fargo, confirming my belief
that they are the Coen Brother's best. Oh, and then there's Ichi
the Killer and Cold Fish and a million other violent Japanese films
The Foods - Standard, American, breakfast foods are my favorite
foods. My latest favorite place for breakfast is West Town Bakery
and Diner. I'm also always wondering what else I might try putting
Nutella and/or peanut butter on - lately it's waffles and
The Art - Pop Surrealism! Yosuke Ueno! Mark Ryden! Haoto Natori!
Television Programs - Breaking Bad, It's Always Sunny in
Philadelphia, Tim and Eric - Awesome Show Great Job!, Frisky Dingo,
Eastbound and Down, The L Word, Twin Peaks, 30 Rock, Louie, The
Office, American Horror Story, Off the Air, Arrested Development,
Curb Your Enthusiasm, Check It Out with Dr. Steve Brule (jesus
christ, this last season was dark, wasn't it!?)
