Books: Anything by Milan Kundera, Jorge Louis Borges, The Wasteland
by T. S. Elliot, House of Leaves by Mark Z Danielewski. I wish
there were more books like Blood Meridian and The Road. I will now
say that Waiting for Godot makes this list. Currently working
through Waiting for Ubik, attemtping some Faulkner having never
Movies: The Royal Tenebaums, In The Loop, Apocalypse Now, Wild
Zero, There Will Be Blood. Was happy to see Moonrise Kingdom in the
TV: Breaking Bad, 30 Rock and It's Always Sunny. The Thick of It
and Peep Show are brilliant from the British. And I'll always have
a soft spot for Dr. Katz.
Music: Man Man, Beirut, A Hawk and a Hacksaw, Balkan Beat Box,
Eagles of Death Metal, The Dodos, Lovage, They Might Be Giants,
David Byrne, Tom Waits, Serge Gainsbourg, Deerhunter, Mondo Boys
mixes. I have a soft spot for 50's and 60's pop (The Zombies, The
Hollies, etc). Some of Anna Calvi makes me swoon. Been liking
Magentic Fields the more I listen to them. And I just came across
The Pharcyde for the
second time, which I couldn't believe I had forgotten about. Am
currently on a 70's kick, so T Rex, The Buzzcocks, and The New York
Dolls have been played often.
Food: Crunchy peanut butter and crispy chocolate bars. Yogurt.
Clementines are nature's perfect fruit, they come in their own
disposable easy-to-open packaging. I recently found I like plums
and squash. True fact.
