1001 things to do before you die

The mid 2000s saw the process of listmaking coming to the fore with titles such as 1001 Movies (2004), 1001 Paintings (2007), 1001 Books (2006) and 1001 Albums (2006) [you must] see, read and hear [before you die]. I like to think of Jahsonic as an addition and alternative to these lists, with particular attention to what I call a certain ‘cult’ factor. For film I propose 250 films and their directors; for literature 120 books and their writers; and for music a history of dance music and a history of black music, a history of experimental music and their makers. In the visual arts I have fantastic art.
