Music, Movies, and Books

In terms of books, I adore short stories, novellas, surrealism that seeps through the pages... Two authors that define my taste are Franz Kafka and Etgar Keret.

Authors:
Franz Kafka
Etgar Keret
Miroslav Penkov
Michel Houellebecq
Oscar Wilde
George Orwell
Hans Christian Anderson
Alexandr Solzhenitsyn

Again, surrealism - and bizarreness. The reason, I think, is that it exists in every day life, it is just those with a 6th sense who can see it.

Films:
Underground
Samsara
Le Bossu
Exils
Babel
Mr Ibrahim et les fleurs du Koran

Too broad to define!
Music:
Anything duduk (Hovsepyan, Gasparyan, Minassian)
Arto Tuncboyaciyan
Azam Ali
Django Reinhardt
Cyril Morin
Eleni Karaindrou
Dvorak
Miles Davis
Nina Simone
Oi Va Voi
Faithless
Royksopp
Cat Empire
Moby
Roxette (with no shame!)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The moment I hear the first note of duduk, there is nothing better. Rolling down a hill. The first sip of Guiness. Flying as high as possible on a swing.
