Hardly any books manage to be quite _good_, in my view, and those
that do are way too revealing about the way I see the world to
share. You can have some of the nearly-there ones though, they're
by: Julian Barnes, Tom Stoppard, George Eliot, Geoff Dyer, David
Foster Wallace, Ezra Pound.
My taste in films is pretty bad. They need to include Leonardo
DiCaprio in his prettyboy stage, or be about a smaller brownish
girl moping over a blonde. I also like Anna Karina a great deal -
but that's not embarrassing.
Barely any teevee, but when I get into to it I really get into it.
I probably read more recaps than watch shows.
Music: The Magnetic Fields, Los Campesinos!, The Weakerthans,
Hefner, Beirut, Patrick Wolf, Nick Cave, Bob Dylan, Belle and
Little Richard and various other bouncy '50s rock 'n' roll,
Supremes and other 60s girl groups,
Those Dancing Days and other Swedish pop,
Tullycraft and other tweepop,
Mazzy Star and other 90s shoegaze,
Grimes and Coco Sumner and other girls I crush on,
Regina Spektor, CocoRosie, Paul Simon, NMH and Mmmbop
I would happily live off persimmons, but sadly that gives you
