Apparently I don't spend a lot of time ranking books and movies
with respect to each other to decide which ones are my favorites.
Well, my favorite book of all time has to be Charlotte's
Web; The Little Prince ranks very high as well; and
beyond that I might add in Amy's Eyes, much Thurber,
Pratchett, some Stephenson—possibly the Baroque Cycle—and
maybe A Song of Ice and Fire standing in for a lot of
Movies is a little harder. Maybe Beauty and the Beast, the
Rhapsody in Blue segment of Fantasia 2000, Contact,
The Great Muppet Caper, Amélie, maybe Eternal
Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Spirited Away?
The only TV show I really watch regularly is Jeopardy! (and
Game of Thrones when it's on); all-time favorite shows
include The Muppet Show and Star Trek: Deep Space
Nine. I want to interpret "favorite shows" though as meaning
favorite Broadway shows, in which case my favorites include
My Fair Lady, Fiddler on the Roof, Guys and
Dolls, and In the Heights, among I suppose many
Favorite music, relatedly, is largely showtunes; also very fond of
klezmer and I have a soft spot for the Grateful Dead and other
Favorite foods: Fresh mozzarella and basil. Gelato. Hot chocolate
from Burdick's, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Spaghetti sauce with a
lot of mushrooms and peppers. Corn chowder. Grapefruit. The
Thousand-Layer Bread from the Burmese restaurant in Philadelphia.
