'Sometimes I really hunker down in my old records'
Friday 30 August 2013
Sometimes I really hunker down in my old records. But a friend just bought me the new Matthew E White CD, called Big Inner.
The film I've enjoyed most recently was The Intouchables, which was such a touching script and so beautifully acted. Rust and Bone actually inspired me to do a cover of Bruce Springsteen's “State Trooper” because there's a brilliant remix of it in the film.
I really enjoyed The Naked Ape by Desmond Morris. It was published in 1967 and is often a very amusing zoological perspective on human beings. The chapter on sex is hilarious.
I'm just completely addicted to Game of Thrones. I'm so obsessed that my new video is me trying to be in Game of Thrones. I will watch David Attenborough box sets for the rest of my life.
I'm actually discovering The Mighty Boosh – it's just so brilliant.
There was a really good Mariko Mori exhibition at the Royal Academy. There was this amazing pulsating pod that I found absolutely beautiful.
