...what would your specialised subject be?
Bonus points if it's non-music related.
1999 to present day.
The films of Wes Anderson
George Romero's "...of the Dead" series
'a member of which popular online music forum is mentioned during the dvd commentary of dawn of the dead?'
am always threatening to enter my housemate with the subject:
'The Life And Times of Syd Barret and 60s Psychadelia'.
The man knows more than is healthy... I've not met anyone who has a specialist knowledge on an area of popular culture as much as him.
There you go.
I may have to marry you.
So I wont bother.

Cos I can hide my embarrassing reply mid-thread rather than tacking it on at the end...
Phillip Pullman's 'His Dark Materials' (Lore)
Sad, but true. Anyone read Kiedis' autobiography? It's so funny/lame it's unbelievable.
I read it a few years ago, I thought it was quite interesting up until around the BSSM period. His childhood was insane.
Although the fact i can't find my copy says something...
The life and times of Chandler Bing!
Specifically, 'The Adventures of Eddie Crane, Wonder Dog'.
either 'Modern Typography' or ... er...
god, i have no idea. i have a fairly average knowledge of a fairly wide variety of topic but not a massively in-depth knowledge of anything in particular. i feel rubbish now.
While I was doing my dissertation and meant to be reading up about Joan Littlewood, Brecht, Peter Brook and other theatre practitioners I studied the lives and careers of the whole of the history of Monty Python - and so became an expert in the wrong subject. Go on ask me anything?
Pokemon, Beyblade or Harry Potter. But they're terribly specific. I could probably do several LatAm related topics - maybe history of maps if I was feeling adventurous.
The work of The Frankfurt School, Antonio Gramsci, Bulmer and Katz, Stuart Hall and David Morley into Audience Theory and Media Effects.
or, almost ashamedly...
The complete history of Taking Back Sunday, Brand New, Breaking Pangaea and Straylight Run, or Metallica.
with a really brief outline of what exactly the frankfurt school is
I should know, it comes up in my studies all the time, but idont :(
