So much to say here.
Nietzsche, Orwell, Vonnegut, Bukowski, Kerouac, Burroughs, Eliot,
Wittgenstein, Searle, Chomsky, Milton Huxley, Carroll, Miller,
Welles, Dewey, Ehrenreich, Paul, we could be here a while. The
classics deserve a mention too.
Directors: Cronenberg, Romero, Kubrick, Aja, Argento, Nolan, Lucas,
Killebrew, Malick, on and on. Off the top of my head: 7 Samurai,
Dark City, THX 1138, 1984, Blade Runner, The Crazies, Cabin Fever,
Memento, Clockwork Orange, 2001:, See No Evil, Antichrist, Shining,
Cannibal Holocaust, see above. Horror is really my thing.
Network TV on occasion, comedy, lot of nonfiction resources, love
the classics too, , fond of beat generation stuff. Rap, hip-hop,
new and old, death metal, industrial, hardcore. Godflesh. Pop music
is good too.
