qualifying my answers.
My tastes tend to be fairly broad, from the esoteric to the mainstream.
For reading, I'm more of a periodical reader (The New Yorker, The New Scientist, The NY Times) than a book reader, although I will read a book if I find it interesting enough. I tend more towards non-fiction (Revelations, Propaganda, The Way We Never Were) than fiction (Super Sad True Love Story, Through The Looking Glass, Wigfield) in the written word.
For fiction, I prefer film and TV. I tend to go for things that have some sort of comedic element to them, particularly of the absurdist variety, such as Parks & Recreation or Female Trouble, although I do enjoy straight up serious documentary/drama, such as Frontline or Persona, as well. I also enjoy genre stuff, especially sci-fi, like Doctor Who or Star Trek (2009).
Musically, I like pretty much everything genre-wise (especially pop, both Top 40 and indie) although some genres, like metal or mainstream rap, require a very specific and rather infrequently encountered mood to be enjoyed. I also could never really get into.
