Currently reading: The internet, too much. When I can bring myself to switch it off, James Hillman’s “Re-visioning Psychology”. I might take Zenith’s tip about Goodreads, as I want to start reading a lot more. I will finish “Against the Day” this year. |
Currently listening: Right now, Elvis “King Creole” soundtrack, brought from Fopp sale today, alongside The Maytals. Loch Ness Monster reggae comp, Step Forward punk singles boxset and Joe Meek EP. The Elvis is surprisingly good. Rocking the iPod, various toytown pop downloaded from Marmalade Skies. I’ve also been playing “Metamorphoses: Electrnic Interpretations of Modern & Classical Works” a lot – it’s a Russian LP on Melodaya and features a track by Eduard Artimeve, the guy who did the Stalker soundtrack. It’s also that weirdest of commodities, a good record I brought from a charity shop.
Currently watching: Myself, in the mirror. Not much TV really. I saw “Being There”, Peter Sellers as an idiot savant Jesus, last night. God knows what will be next. City of Men DVD has lurked next to the TV for a month or so but I’ve still not watched it all. The news a lot, fascinated by our economic implosion.
Current thrills: Records, generally. Getting inspired by various esoteric interests again. “The ladeez”… and getting fit again. Rocking my new coat – it rules. Winning ebay auctions and throwing all my new records and work papers all over the floor till it looks like a pigsty in ‘ere.
Current wearing: Muji shirt, whie T-shirt, new jeans, holy socks. Shirt and jeans unfortunately makes me think of that picture of Nick in The Guardian.
Current hobbies: Records, to the extent that its getting boring. Exercise (again). Meditation, Hsing I and Ba Gua.
Current plan: Stay awake till I go to sleep. Then martial arts and work.
Current product desires. Surprisingly, records. A book that hasn’t yet been written, fusing Reich, bodywork, tantra and loads of other stuff together in a coherent, non-mystical fashion.
Currently in love with: No one, but so what?
