10. Cool Stuff

To read...

1. Nick Hornby's High Fidelity - No one 'gets it' more than this guy.

2. DBC Pierre's Vernon God Little - Kinda like 'Catcher in the Rye' for the Eminem generation, or maybe not.

3. Stephen King's IT - This and The Stand were his best work when he was in his prime, check it out, at 1.000 plus pages, it'll keep u occupied for a bit.

To watch...

1. Grave of the Fireflies - One of my top five favourite films, and i've only seen it once, way too under-rated, and way too important to be missed, don't believe me, ask Roger Ebert.

2. Garden State - That scene with the fast-food knight doing the Klingon speech was gut-bustingly hilarious, plus there's Natalie Portman in it, need there be more to be said?

3. Tres Lounge - That 'weird' looking fella's directorial debut...the characters in this film are so utterly pathetic that u can't help but feel sorry for them...and the thing is, I know some people who could just end up like them; displaced, alone, dimmed and worse, indifferent to it all...

To listen...

1. Damien Rice's O - That song "The Blower's Daughter" (from Closer) is worth the price alone.

2. Radiohead's OK Computer - An oldie but goodie, in my opinion, the Best Album Ever, and Let Down the Best Song Ever.

3. Disagree's At the End of the Day - Good melodies, good vocals, kinda lame lyrics though (of the standard grunge-teen-angst variety.
