I used to be very picky about the art I consumed. I swear that's not really as pretentious as it sounds, but I would reach out for a specific book, movie, or TV show because I wanted to, not because it was there. Not to be a contrarian, but bestsellers lists and top 40 lists used to really turn me off. Now, I just feel like I couldn't be bothered. I'm almost certain it's laziness and not because there's nothing new out there anymore. I would still tell you Wenders' Wings of Desire and Kiarostami's Taste of Cherry are among my favourites, but I didn't bring a VCR with me since I moved out, so I have no idea how long it's been since I've seen them. Oh, I should also mention Vinterberg's The Celebration. I honestly love this movie:
The same goes for music, but not as severely. I listen to the stuff I really love, but I haven't really listened to much that is new to me.
I think I need to walk away from the computer more often (or simply use it smarter - more blogging, less 9gag and pewdiepie). And I think I need to shut the phone off more often. It's hard, though. That's how I keep in touch with Ted. My delightful Ted.
I need more balance in my life.
