PDB: Which music, books, films, songs or television shows do you wish you had written?

GMOC: Music: Anything by American composer Philip Morris Glass, especially from his album Metamorphosis.

Books: Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy. His novel is the perfect mix of literary and story. I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve read it. Apparently, it takes the him ten years to write his novels. Time well spent, in my humble opinion. Some say he has the odd opaque moment when the prose strains the eye, but the sheer ingenuity of that book continues to mesmerise me
