frances1972 profile - diary

My favorite music:

Emmylou Harris
comments: "I am a poor wayfaring stranger." Heather Nova, Jonatha Brooke, Iris DeMent, Del McCoury, Lucinda Williams, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Lyle Lovett, Dwight Yoakum and of course the master, George Jones
Elvis Costello
comments: I was thinking that one important character clue is knowing WHOM exactly a person thinks of when you say "Elvis" - Costello, Presley or Stoiko?
comments: Still obsessed with Weezer and now also Cake. Still waiting for Nickel album. Portishead, Cibo Matto, Rasputina, Nerf Herder.
Steven Sondheim
comments: Sweeney Todd is my favorite musical, followed by Candide, followed by maybe Kismet or Carousel.
The Smiths
comments: I still mourn for the Smiths. I've never liked solo Morrisey (his music, that is - not the man. ah!) quite as much.

My favorite movies:

comments: Another fav is Das Boot. It gets a mention w/ Brazil because I first saw, and loved, both the same year. I began learning German because of Das Boot, and I rekindled my love of all things fantastic, dystopian and SF thanks to Brazil.
Fanny and Alexander
comments: My No. 1 absolute favorite movie. I even have the original 6-hour TV version on tape (dubbed into German - I taped it off of German TV).
Annie Hall
comments: It's hard to pick just one Woody Allen movie. Also: Radio Days, Bullets Over Broadway, Manhattan, Hannah and Her Sisters. Also: Shadows and Fog. (Haha! Just kidding.)
comments: My fav documentary, 1 of my fav movies, period. I remember looking at my brother's Cheap Trick album as a kid and being very, very disturbed. Mostly, I adore Charles. His elaborately stylized journal that devolves into chickenscratch. Amazing!
comments: I just saw this movie again. I have to say it's a masterpiece: the camera work. Who cares about location? We, the camera, must stay right with Rosetta in her world of the bare minimum. Amazing and gripping. No music - not necessary.

My favorite authors:

These are my favorite short story writers:
comments: Cheever, Bowles, Carver, Munro, Borges, Wedekind, Porter, Bambara, Zweig. Favorite SF short story: "The Story of Her Life" by Ted Chiang
These are my favorite novelists:
comments: Hardy, Austen, Bowles, Levi, Byatt, Murdoch, LeGuin, N. Stephenson, J. Berger, P.K. Dick, Salinger, Pagnol, Heinlein
These are my favorite poets:
comments: Kunitz, Plumly, Li-Young Lee, L. Gregerson, Lorca, Shihab Nye, Enzensberger, Tennyson
Thomas Hardy
comments: Hardy gets special mention because my favorite book is Jude the Obscure.
Primo Levi
comments: Also gets special mention because of The Periodic Table, in second place and closing fast along with Marcel Pagnol's The Water of the Hills (Jean de Florette and Manon des Sources).
