The Recommendation Engine: Iris' Graham Tucker

When this copywriter isn't busy running his own record label, he can be found watching nostalgic TV shows and sharing YouTube links of obscure Swedish R&B songs.

What I'm watching
I just finished "Star Trek: The Next Generation," and now I'm watching a series from 1991 called "Fishing with John," starring actor and musician John Lurie. It's absurdly funny. In one episode, John takes Willem Dafoe fishing. In another, Tom Waits sticks a fish down his pants. Highly recommended. I watched both on Hulu using my Wii U.

What I'm listening to
STAYCORE 117, Labrador Records, and sincerely yours' SoundCloud feeds streamed everywhere and often. I have a thing for experimental pop out of Sweden, and maybe, the rest of the world should, too. Maybe that's why I started a label (which, I guess, makes me my own biggest fan). 

What I'm reading
"Facing the Bridge" by Yoko Tawada in paperback. (This is going to sound pretentious, but whatever.) It's a collection of short stories weaving mythology and magical realism through ideas of non-identity and relocation. Tawada's a weird and wonderful soul that I relate to.

Who I'm following
@agneskarin on Instagram. Come for the horses, follow for the landscapes.

What and who I'm ignoring
My age, cars in the bike lane, and people who refuse to use serial commas. [Editor's note: Campaign doesn't use serial commas. We are making an exception for Graham]
