MoviesPan's Labyrinth (thanks Mr Kermode), Napoleon Dynamite.The Apartment.City of God. Ice Cold in Alex. Withnail and I. It's a wonderful life. Barton Fink. Amores Perros. Slade in Flame. The Grudge. Most Coen Brothers movies. Jacob's Ladder. Almost anything with Anne Bancroft/Shirley Maclean/Jack Lemmon/Gabriel Byrne/John Torturro, Tim Robbins. A great director called Hal Hartley who makes very strange and wonderful films the titles of which i've mostly forgotten. I used to watch them all the time when I lived in Canada, I can never find them over here; check him out though, he's a bit fucked up trust me!
TelevisionChannel 4 News. Match of the Day. Newsnight. Question Time. South Park. The Simpsons. Angel Dust. The Smoking Room. Peepshow. Dr Who.
BooksThey're great aren't they? I wish people would read more, it might stop them from spouting utter bollocks whilst simultaneously shaking white fisted with rage at the latest outrage/atrocity perpetrated by some 'foreigner', according to the Daily Mail, which they believe because it's a 'quality' paper that is definitely politically unbiased and independent!!! And if they're not doing that they're watching the ITV 'news' SHUT UP, get a life, read a book! Life of Pi by Yann Martel - I cannot recommend this highly enough. Truly stunning, sad, and beautiful. Please read it.
HeroesTo be avoided if you ask me, they always let you down if you invest too much faith in them, they aren't what you think they are trust me!!!
- Jan 16, 2007 11:08 AM Karina's tribute to Wiz
About me:I play guitar in a rock band... does anything else matter!? I spend most of my life telling people about me, or about who i'm pretending to be!; it doesn't seem right somehow just to plonk it down in this box, where's the art, beauty, tragedy, mystery, deception? If I could write I would, but instead I make up songs. Let's face it, you will never know me, and I will never know you, we are just making ourselves feel better by filling in this little box, marketing, selling, packaging etc. I don't believe a word I read, even what i've written myself! I advise you all to be less credulous and gullible!
Who I'd like to meet:It is with great, great sorrow that I have to include in Wiz's profile the sad news of his death on Wednesday December the 6th at the Atkinson Morley neurology hospital, Tooting. Wiz collapsed in my arms on Tuesday following a bleed on his brain. When the time came he was happy, inspired and vibrant. Keep this memory alive. Much love, Karina, Wiz's partner in troublemaking xxx If you'd like to leave a message for him, tributes have been set up. www.myspace.com/wiztribute and via the Megas site, www.megacityfour.co.uk THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO HELPED ME ORGANISE THE FORWARD 4 WIZ BENEFIT GIG AT THE WESTY ON SAT, ALL THE BANDS WHO PLAYED, AND EVERYONE WHO CAME ALONG TO MAKE THE NIGHT SO SPECIAL. YOU ALL ROCK. HARD XX
