Books - Lolita, The Thin Red Line, Hitchhiker's Guide to the
Galaxy...though mostly I read subtitles on foreign-language movies
which look like books if you squint.
Movies - Rather than rattle off my saber of sharply esoteric film
choices, I'll just tell you the directors I enjoy: Tarkovsky,
Kaurismaki, Kubrick, Kurosawa, Fassbinder, Kiarostami, Nolan,
Tarantino, Jodorowsky, Cronenberg, Ozu, Hou, Wong,Truffaut,
Welles,Bresson, and sometimes (why not?) Hitchcock.
Shows - I've watched The Simpsons far longer than I should have and
still do. Been down The Wire while I was Breaking Bad with
Sherlock. And of course, anything by PFFR and/or Tim and Eric.
Anime in general has my vote this November with a life-long
devotion to Yuru Yuri.
Music - I listen to Mastodon, Blind Guardian, King Diamond, Flight
of the Conchords, Dethklok, ELO, Meat Loaf, and Brak from The Brak
Show. Music isn't my strong suit nor my iron armor.
Food - I prefer stuffing myself with popcorn, but I understand that
other food can be good as well. Halal makes me holler, and fried
chicken gets my ticker stickin'. I love all world food equally,
because it's the current year.
