I like scary movies just as much as art house flicks, and you'll
just as likely catch me reading Bolano as you would Gawker. I like
Murakami a lot. Too many books to mention. Michael Cunningham,
Colum McCann, Jonathan Franzen and even occasionally Dave Eggers
are some repeated reads. Jennifer Egan is pretty wonderful.
Movies: Love the Coen Brothers (No Country was my favorite, oh
wait, Big Lebowski is a tie), Chinatown, 8 1/2, Sideways,
Anchorman, Avatar, Braveheart, Broken Embraces, pretty much
anything with Paul Rudd in it, The Royal Tenenbaums (Love Wes
Anderson.), Fantastic Mr. Fox, The Dark Knight. Scary Movies:
Cloverfield, Paranormal Activity (the 2nd one was the best),
Quarantine, The Exorcism, Blair Witch Project, The Ring, The
Conjuring, etc! I don't care for gore but love scary movies.
Music: Kendrick Lamar, Hall and Oates, Death From Above 1979, Judas
Priest, Guns N Roses, The Knife, Gesaffelstein, Girl Talk, Arcade
Fire, James Brown, Bon Iver, OutKast, MF DOOM, The Shins, Interpol,
Grizzly Bear, LCD Soundsystem, The Smiths, D'Angelo, Jill Scott,
Erykah Badu, Clams Casino, Gershwin, Etta James (RIP), Coltrane,
Robert Johnson, Leadbelly, countless more.
