Not really straight. Not really bi. Not really gay. Labels.
It's my life. For my friends, I provide this service: you text me a location, feeling, or some important detail of the present and a few artists you are into, and I will respond with some things to listen to.
House & techno are a thing for me. not edm. i'm probably going to be a 70 year old man still trying to experiment with electronics, sounds and rhythms. Allergic to vegas, Coachella. I have a studio for fun.
I'm quite into rinse fm, a london pirate station that plays quite good electronic music and grime.
Radiohead & whatever Thom Yorke is doing. Burial, Boards Of Canada, Phillip Glass, Can, Sigur Ros, Portishead, Massive Attack.
Film scores by Thomas Newman, Atticus Ross & Trent Reznor.
Hip Hop and Grime. Clipse to Missy Elliot to Kendrick Lamar to political stuff from London.
Guitars and feelings. Nine Inch Nails, Bowie, Nirvana, American Analog Set, Tears for Fears, Interpol, Simple Minds, Depeche Mode.
Blue is the Warmest Color. American Beauty. Anything Catherine Breillat, Solondz. IFC shorts. Talk Radio. Asian revenge flicks. French indie stuff. Anything deeply hilarious, incredibly moving, dark, with excellent cinematography, or just has a unique method of tending to the details.
Lorrie Moore is easily my favorite writer.
I stay religiously on top of media, even media I passionately disagree with.
Books that changed my path: Brian Eno: Visual Music, A Photographic History of West Coast Hip Hop, Opening Up, Survivor, Days of War Nights of Love: Crimethinc for Beginners, Unbearable Lightness of Being, Cradle To Cradle, Perks of Being a Wallflower.
