My favorite music:

Cowboy Junkies
comments: Margot Timmins' voice leaves me breathless; the songs are dark and knowing and heartbreaking
Garbage
comments: Yes, I have that major crush on Shirley Manson, but who doesn't? The songs are complex, the music compelling
Berlin
comments: My favorite 80s dance band! "Sex (I'm a...)" is the premiere dance song (and video) of my clubland days
Bryan Ferry
comments: The embodiment of that haunting elegance that always attracts me. His Roxy Music CDs are worth having, too
Marianne Faithfull
comments: That voice... And songs like "Running For Our Lives" and "Falling From Grace" and "Times Square" leave me frozen and haunted

My favorite movies:

Crash
comments: Scary, majorly sexy, twisted, incredibly cold and witty, David Cronenberg at his best: the erotica of car crashes
Naked Lunch
comments: David Cronenberg again-- a blackly funny rendering of the Wm. S. Burroughs novel. Peter Weller is brilliant.
Kundun
comments: Eerie, beautiful, dreamy... The young life of the Dalai Lama. Great soundtrack by Philip Glass
Mulholland Drive
comments: Okay-- I already live in this world. David Lynch on a Hollywood full of dwarves, conspiracies, beautiful lesbians, and a shifting reality
The 13th Warrior
comments: Okay, yes: I have a weakness for heroic legend. Antonio Banderas in a version of Michael Crichton's "Eaters of the Dead". Great photography, great soundtrack...and a rather good evocation of the Norse idea of the hero.

My favorite authors:

Mary Renault
comments: Brilliantly done novels of Ancient Greece. "The King Must Die" and "The Persian Boy" will both take your breath away. I assign "Last of the Wine" to History classes.
J.G. Ballard
comments: Re-defined science fiction. His "Voices of Time" and "The Crystal World" and his Vermilion Sands stories are beautiful, eerie, dark...
Haruki Murakami
comments: Hokkaido, invisible sheep, Japanese jazz, a perfect sense of bittersweetness...
Robert Musil
comments: "The Man Without Qualities"... Late-Habsburg Vienna, of course: Wien, Wien, nur du allein...
William Gibson
comments: Why can't I live in his cities? Or at least date Molly or Cayce...?

update June 3, 2018: Sorry, there was a problem when updating the site to SSL and posting was affected for most users (annoyingly, not the one I use to test things though). Email andrew@diaryland.com with any remaining bugs that stop you from posting. (No need to tell me about archiving problems, etc, I'm working on those).

More fixes soon.
