Yes, I know. Nobody wants to know this. Why the heck are your reading this page anyway? ;-)
- Carter, Angela: The Bloody Chamber
Short stories by Angela Carter based on European fairy tales, among them
"The Company of Wolves".
- Carter, Angela: Wise Children
A strange book, very "dry" humour (sic!). Everyone who knows elderly people
and loves Shakespeare will love this book.
- Bradbury, Ray: Fahrenheit 451
I love well-written Science Fiction. Truffaut's legendary movie is a
classic, the book is better.
- Clarke, Arthur C.: 2001
Well, this time the movie was better, but the book is still great.
- Adams, Douglas: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
- Adams, Douglas: Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (Dirk Gentlys holistische Detektei)
Not quite as funny as the Hitchhiker's Guide, instead a bit more
intellectual (but just a bit). I like this novel even more.
- Adams, Richard: Watership Down
A great book. Can't be described in one sentence. Get it, read it, and you
- Douglas, Adam: The Beast Within
A non-fictional book about the history of therianthropes in the European
- Strieber, Whitley: Wolfen
A horror novel only on the first look. In fact an intelligent critic of
modern society. Get it now!
- Strieber, Whitley: The Wild (Bestie)
A novel with horror elements about a shape shifter. An interesting
and excellently written new interpretation of the werewolf myth.
- Farmer, Philip José: Wolf, Iron and Moth
A short story. Great transformation.
- Transformation Story Archives
Transformations into animals, mystical being, the other gender...
- Enya (everything!)
Words cannot describe her beautiful music.
Sister, brothers and uncles of Enya... Everything from Irish Folk to
- Máire Brennan
Enyas older sister, member of Clannad.
- Andreas Loefke
Very beautiful Irish instrumental music (celtic harp).
Scottish folk rock
- Adiemus: Adiemus
Ethno-Pop influenced by Jazz and Classic. Fine music!
- Pink Floyd
The Wall, Dark Side of the Moon, The Divison Bell... Need to tell you
- Kate Bush
Well-told stories and great music.
- Dire Straits: Money for Nothing
Who doesn't know them?
- Anne Clark
Poems recited to electronic music. A bit weird at first, but very
- The Nits
What's that? Pop? Avantgarde? Or both?
"New Adventures in HiFi"? No, the same they've always done. And that's
a Good Thing [tm].
- Fury in the Slaughterhouse: pure life!
Hannover's R.E.M. ;-)
- Element of Crime: Weißes Papier
German pop poets...
- Alphaville: The Breathtaking Blue
Their third album, released 1989. Regretable not very successful.
- Paul Roland: Dance Macabre / Cabinet of
Very dark lyrics, mostly sentimental music, spoooky!
- Smetana: My Fatherland
- Delius: Orchestral Works
- Ravel: Bolero and Le Waltz
- Verdi: all the operas, especially Aida
Sorry, I love his stuff. And I hate Mozart. Period.
- Puccini: all the operas
Puccini's work I love even more. And I still hate Mozart.
A master piece, IMHO the best movie of all times.
A breathtaking masterpiece by animation artist kyo.
- Princess Mononoke
Another master piece, Japanese animation, second place on my list of
the best movies of all times.
- The Company of Wolves
A rather strange fairy tale movie after Angela Carter's short story.
Little Red Riding Hood quite different, demasking Grimm's perception of
fairy tails. Well photographed, good special effects.
- Watership Down
The first movie that made me cry. An animated version of Richard Adams'
famous book. Great backgrounds, great music, but don't watch when
you're already depressed.
- The Pink Panther
Not Friz Freleng's cartoon series, the movie with Peter Sellers as the
- Cat People
...the remake mit Natassja Kinski. (yiff!)
With young Michele Pfeiffer and Ruttger Hauer as protagonists.
Another fairy tale. The computer animated dragon is far better than the
animation of Jurasic Park.
- American Werwolf (An American Werewolf in
No comment... ;-). Just why do they shoot the protagonist in
- Fahrenheit 451
Though the book is better: The movie is still good.
- Marx Brothers: A Night at the Opera
Music and comedy, what more can you wish for? Everything else is just a
