Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.

Doing this has made me realise I don’t read good books nowadays. Only two books that I’ve read in the last 4 years made it to the list, The Crow Road and Persepolis. So much for university being a time of inspired learning, eh?
1) John Berger - Ways of Seeing
2) Angela Carter - The Bloody Chamber
3) Iain Banks - The Crow Road
4) Oscar Wilde - The Portrait of Dorian Grey
5) Hermann Hesse - Narcissus and Goldmund
6) Thomas Hardy - Tess of the d’Urbervilles
7) Mary Shelley - Frankenstein
8) Arundhati Roy - The God of Small Things
9) George Orwell - 1984
10) Marjane Satrapi - Persepolis

Blue Angel Lounge – In Distance
They may have one of the worst band names ever, but Blue Angel’s Lounge’s (FFS!) moody, atmospheric and Joy Division-esque music is really quite good.
Rene Clair and Francis Picabia’s breakthrough, reversible ending of their Dadaist film, Entr’acte (1924)
I wrote a mediocre essay on this in my final year. Funny little film though.
