Cultural Life: Jamie Cullum, musician
Friday 05 February 2010
I became a member of Jack White's Third Man Records' 7-inch vinyl record singles club, which I thought was a great idea. I particularly like Dan Sartain, who is signed to the label. I also love Sweet Billy Pilgrim's album 'Twice Born Men'. It has been a while since I've played a record over and over again like this.
I think 'True Blood' is fantastic – sexy, funny and frightening. They really get things like this right in America. Being a music geek, my favourite television show is 'Later with Jools Holland'.
I finished the epic '2666' by Roberto Bolaño, which I loved, even through the most difficult sections. I got bogged down with the hedge-fund sections of Sebastian Faulks's 'A Week in December', so I gave it up to devour Paul Auster's 'Invisible'.
I saw Terry Gilliam's 'The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus', which despite its flaws and the fact that I watched it at a mother-and-baby screening, was charming. 'Fantastic Mr Fox' is destined to entertain people for years to come. It was infused with the authorship of Wes Anderson, as much as Roald Dahl.
