When I'm not contemplating the universe, I guess I teach. When I'm not teaching, I guess I make art. When I'm not making art, I guess I contemplate the [BLACK HOLE]
Oh no! Did it again. Completely destroyed the universe ;-)
Anything that helps me learn more about myself, the world, or how to do something.
Classical Literature (Epic of Gilgamesh, Shahnameh, Iliad, the Aeneid)
Poetry (Rumi, Saul Williams)
French Lit (Proust, L'étranger, Les Misérable, Le Petit Prince)
Philosophy (where to start, I'm into Richard Rorty at the moment)
Craigslist misconnections (come on, they're fun)
Seriously, anything about art
Goonies, The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle, Irreversible, Eraserhead, Rubber, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain, Babies, Watership Down, High Fidelity, Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind, Ten. This list is a very wide spread =). I would love to watch Women Without Men by Shirin Neshat, but I haven't had the time to track it down. And the list goes on...
Sadly, I haven't had a tv in 18 years, so my knowledge of sitcoms and pop culture are nil in comparison to any teenager.
Music: this hurts there's just too much
Oh No, Oh My!, Bob Dylan, Bowie, The XX, Ben Kweller, Cake, Iron and Wine, My Morning Jacket, Starfucker, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, LCD Sound System, Andrew Bird, Horse Feathers, Beck, Miss Li, Soko, Sufjan Stevens, Little Pictures, Gorrillaz, Fleet Foxes, Lykke Li, Nick Drake, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Dø, I'm from Barcelona, The Black Keys. I tried to make that list as wide as possible.
