Music, Movies, and Books

The movies I enjoy most are either romantic comedies (total fluff) or the complete opposite. anything by Fellini, Godard, Bunuel, Lynch, Jodorowsky, Kubrick, get the idea ;) Nuts for the classics...sucker for Disney.
The Velvet Underground, Nina Simone, David Bowie, Birthday Party, Nick Cave &The Bad Seeds, Hank Williams, Neil Young, B52s, Brian Eno, King Crimson, Robert Fripp, Bjork, PJ Harvey, Ramones, Cramps, Can...this is impossible. i love music..all kinds. let's talk about it.
Books: anything Henry Miller, Anais Nin, the Beats in general, Bukowski, Aldous Huxley, Sylvia Plath, Palahnuik, Dickinson...list goes on&on&on.
