Music, Movies, and Books
As far as books are concerned I am rather stuck in the 19th century, I adore Victor Hugo especially L'Homme Qui Rit, it's a such a wonderfully grotesque and theatrical romp of a novel. I am also in love with Verlaine, Baudelaire and Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac. I do also like J.K. Rowling, Luke Kennard, AS Byatt, Simone de Beauvoir and really trashy novels too.
I'm a little more contemporary where favourite films are concerned. Whilst Harvey, Silk Stockings, Jules et Jim, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown and Some Like it Hot are favourites of mine; my heart belongs to: Tideland, Waitress, The Secretary, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The Life Aquatic and Delicatessen. I enjoy bratpack movies, they're my guilty pleasure.
Music wise I have a soft spot for 80s and 90s music, especially if it's French. I am in no way a music expert; I tend to get addicted to individual songs that I play over and over and find it hard to see the bigger picture... I enjoy a bundle of things: Louise Attaque, Caravan Palace, The Dresden Dolls, Santana, John Cale, The Cure, Malajube, The Beatles, The Tiger Lillies, Benabar, Like a Thief, Olivia Ruiz, David Bowie, Charles Aznavour, ....
