    More curiosity and for something to do over lunch.
    What are your favorite books, music and films.
    Feel free to give reasons if you wish.

    Book: One Fine Day in the Middle of the Night by Christopher Brookmyre - a school reunion on an oil rig with terrorists. Very funny, loads of swearing and would make a great move in the Die Hard tradition.

    Music: Currently 'In Absentia' by Porcupine Tree - rock, prog, detuned guitars all kinds of stuff. I really love everything this band has done

    Film: I love good cartoons, The Incredibles, Toy Story, Monsters Inc. etc. go back to Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny and I've got them all. If it makes me laugh, then its a good film.

    Lunch over :(

    Books: I am so grateful that my mother taught me and encouraged me to read. The trip to the library was a highlight of the week when I was little. Let's see... the Narnia books, of course, Jack Chalker's Well World series, Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast trilogy, Lord of the Rings. Recently I've been reading a lot of sword and sorcery stuff.

    Music... Tyrannosaurus Rex's Unicorn - music from a faery world, Tangerine Dream's Rubycon - best chill out ever, Van der Graaf Generator's Trisector, and Toyah's The Changeling

    Film: I love a good musical. I enjoyed the Johnny Depp Sweeney Todd, but not what they'd done with the music, cutting half of it out. Fortunately I've got a couple of other DVDs of the stage version. Cabaret, of course - all that divine decadence, and I think it's about time to watch Chicago again. Not a musical but "To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything Julie Newmar" is amazing: a drag queen buddy road movie...
