Toughest bit to fill out.
Film: There is just so many beautiful goddamn films that its hard
to even know where to start.
Top six would be The Shinning, The Thing, Brazil, Holy Mountain,
Phantom of the Paradise and The Royal Tenenbaums.
TCM has been very educational.
I have a deep dislike for the film 2001: A Space Odyssey, but love
love love the Jack Kirby comic adaptation.
Music: Recently, Cate Le Bon, Dorian Wood, Van Dyke Parks and a
Cole Porter Compilation have been in heavy rotation.
Antony & the Johnsons, Rufus Wainwright, The Band, Beach Boys,
That Dog, Sebadoh, Lou Barlow, Yo La Tengo,…flap flip dooty
T.V.: boardwalk empire, walking dead (more so for the zombie fix
than the actual show), Breaking Bad, Mad Men, some sketch shows,
Conan, classic shows/reruns. Somehow I've been sucked into Downton
Abbey. Mostly for Maggie Smith playing a witty old petunia who says
things like "miasma of scandal" and the staggering amount of pasty
young people dying in bed.
Vonnegut always and forever, Sarah Vowell, Jonathan Lethem, Grant
Morrison, Alan Moore, The Hernandez Brothers, Mike Allred, lots of
comic books/ comix/ graphic novels, sci fi, history, art books,
Currently: Rereading a collection of Dorothy Parkers work, older
low print/ OOP indie comics via torrents and finally sinking my
teeth into the works of Mark Twain.
I'm a fan.
Will go out of my way to go to small family owned diners and
