My favorite music:

Tchaikovsky
comments: "1812 Overture" Find one with real cannons and church bells. Woohoo! And they say death metal's too loud. HAH!
Bach
comments: Listen to "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" all the way through. Honeychile, ain't nothin' more to say.
Misfits
comments: It reminds me of my mis-spent youth. C'mon, "Angelfuck" fer cryin' out loud.
Om Kolthoum
comments: THE voice of Egyptian music -- haunting and beautiful.
Elvis
comments: Admit it though, anything between 1956 & 58 rocked. Though, in the name of full disclosure, I have sung along to "In the Ghetto." *sigh*

My favorite movies:

Belle et Bete
comments: Don't ever watch the Big Black Rat's version. Don't do it if you value your sense of aesthetics. Beg, borrow, or steal this French classic, if only for the human arm candelabrum. Beautiful.
Tampopo
comments: Food. Japan. Food. Sex. Food. Mother. Food. Death. Food. Love. Food.
Secretary
comments: Don't get all huffy about the subject matter -- there's more going on.
MirrorMask
comments: Neil Gaiman. Dave McKean. 'Nuff said.
Bringing Up Baby
comments: Hepburn, Grant, and a leopard? A screwball comedy with dinosaurs? Oh frabjous day.

My favorite authors:

Samuel Delany
comments: Because he loves language and has at least two books where the protagonists are poets. Find "Nova", "Babel-17", "Dhalgren" and anything else you can. Go now. Shoo!
Tanith Lee
comments: Non-cloying, non-cutesy fantasy that deals with bigger questions of philosophy and the search for self. Gorgeous descriptions, and creatrix of worlds of dreams -- so real they can be felt, so magical that they slip away in light.
Steven Aylett
comments: Find Steven Aylett and read him. You'll be . . . dang.
William Burroughs
comments: The grand-daddy of 'em all. Start with "Naked Lunch" -- don't fuss about understanding it. Read it. Let it steep for a while. Read it again. Continue with "The Soft Ticket" or whatever else strikes your fancy.
Neil Gaiman
comments: He tells of worlds that lie just outside our consciousness. Beautiful. Funny. Thoughtful.

update: Still fixing stuff as fast as I can!. As you may have noticed, Diaryland is being renovated, which is still in progress. Bugs are all being fixed. The new design should work on phones much better than the old one, and pages in the members area are being converted to the new look one by one, so they can be tested. Please email help@diaryland.com with any new problems, but things that are already bugs should be fixed soon!
