I realised a couple of years ago that almost all the books I had read had been written by white people, so I'm trying to change that.
Fight Club, Kill Bill, Some Like It Hot, Heathers, Pretty In Pink, Withnail & I, What We Do in the Shadows.
Green Wing, Toast of London, Silent Witness, The Thick of It, Black Books, Silk.
Tom Waits, Old Crow Medicine Show, Amy Winehouse, Buena Vista Social Club, Patti Smith, Florence and the Machine, Blind Boys of Alabama, Miles Davis, Lana del Rey, Pokey LaFarge, John Coltrane, the Staves, First Aid Kit.
If you like gin, museums, literature and/or art.
When people send me 'erotic' opening messages, I tend to post them onto twitter. Be warned.
