This song (which has been my ringtone for over a year and I'm still not sick of it)
The writing of Thomas Hardy
Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for solo violin (not a recording, the actual writing thereof)
Systems other than the Dewey decimal system.
The outfits/ haircuts of the Polish lady I've yet to speak to on our street.
My libido (this isn't a boast so much as 'oh, you're into that now, eh?')
My housemate's timekeeping.
That a certain person I've known 8 years has the best voice of anyone I've ever known, and I only found this out last night.
The food that certain good friends cook.

cLOUDDEAD (as a collective and some "solo" works too, especially Why?'s stuff)
The Master and Margarita (book)
The Secret of Monkey Island (videogame)
Another World (videogame)

ps. also a painting by dali that i saw in real life. i didnt "like" him but i knew this was questionable since i had seen his painting only in books and online. still i m not sure, but seeing that painting moved me.
Reading Sarah Kane for the first time was pretty mindblowing for me too. I've since befriended a playwright who went to drama school with her, and keep in touch with mostly by letter, as she lives in Edinburgh and is not big on the internet. I was going to mention Invasion too, watching it for the first time was really special.
