My favorite music:

comments: "1812 Overture" Find one with real cannons and church bells. Woohoo! And they say death metal's too loud. HAH!
comments: Listen to "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" all the way through. Honeychile, ain't nothin' more to say.
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.
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.
comments: Food. Japan. Food. Sex. Food. Mother. Food. Death. Food. Love. Food.
comments: Don't get all huffy about the subject matter -- there's more going on.
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.
