Music, Movies, and Books

Music: As Louis Armstrong said "There's only two types of music, good and bad" The stuff I'm into would include the following (WARNING interest does not indicate the knowledge or the desire to talk about Smiths b-sides for two hours)
Funk, Delta Blues, Cajun, Trad, Soul, Indie, Hip-Hop, West African (Ali Farka Toure etc.). Apart from that it all depends on my mood.

Books: Joseph Conrad, Flann O'Brien, Angela Carter (The Shadow-line, The Third Policeman, Nightwatch and The Bloody Chamber). John S. LeFanu, The Tain trans. by Kinsella, Guillaume Apollonaire, George Orwell, the usual suspects really.

Cinema: The Witchfinder General, The Mummy, The Maltese Falcon, The Wicker Man, Isle of the Dead, Back to the Future Parts 1-3.
