I read. A lot. Both fiction and non-fiction. And a newspaper every
day. (I know, I know, so Twentieth Century. Sue me.)
Rather than regurgitate a list of artists that will tune you right
out I'll say that I like almost all music-Rock, Jazz, Blues
Classical, Country (real country, not Pop with a twang) Punk-it all
works for me. Not a big rap fan, (no susprise there considering my
age) and most Top 40 pop music I find a bit boring. I prefer rough
with emotion over polished and flat.
This week I've been listening to:
Miles Davis-Kind of Blue (it never gets old!) and The Birth of
Rolling Stones: Sticky Fingers and Let It Bleed (perfect hot
Beach Boys: Endless Summer-also perfect hot weather music.
Perfectly crafted 2 and half minute pop songs.
Beethoven: I've been going through the Symphonies again.
Jeff Beck and Jan Hammer Group Live: Rockin' Fusion.
Cowboy Junkies: Trinity Sessions. One of the great
I love motion pictures. All genres, eras, subjects and styles are
fair game. Again, no lists. I prefer substance over style and smart
over stupid. Think Monty Python over Adam Sandler, the Coen
Brothers over Tony Scott.
In the last couple of weeks: Argo, Cloud Atlas (much better than I
expected!) The Maltese Falcon (maybe the single best book to screen
adaptation ever) Dipping into Supernatural Seasons 1-5 (Why I love
this series is beyond explanation. But I do.) The Road (maybe one
of the worst book to screen adaptations ever) and The Wild Bunch.
