Since I've been constantly asked for more specifics about my musical tastes, I'll just start with shows that I've seen live, in reverse chronological order: Crowbar, Mastodon, Clutch, The Wailers, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Iggy Pop and the Stooges, Pentagram, They Might Be Giants, Shonen Knife, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Ratatat, The Faint, TV on the Radio, Cornershop, Beck, Duran Duran, Etta James, Lauren Hill, The Roots (with and without Rahzel), Black Sabbath (full original line-up), Motorhead, War, Genitorturers, Run DMC, Public Enemy, Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, Neil Young, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, Grateful Dead, Traffic, David Bowie, The Who, Nashville Pussy, Ministry, Bad Brains (aka.Soul Brains), Patti LaBelle, Pigface, KMFDM, Rage Against the Machine, Cypress Hill, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Living Colour, Primus, Radiohead, Dizzy Gillespie. I am missing quite a few and I didn't list any of the many splintered genres of electronic dance music that I listen to whose names I don't recall. Additionally, I've been to a few operas and symphonic performances. This is just a partial list that represents my musical tastes and I posted this so that you can get a general idea of what I am into, which is very diverse. I remember seeing an interview with Quincy Jones where he was asked why he constantly changed his musical style and he responded by saying, "If you're a musician, you've got to surrender to the beat." I like that philosophy.
Most of the television I watch is the news or the satirical version of the news as presented by comedy Central. Some original scripted programming that I do watch include Mad Men, House of Cards (both the American and original British version), The Simpsons, Futurama, Modern Family, 30 Rock, and Parks and Recreation.
If the opportunity is there, I really like to embarrass myself slightly by singing karaoke. I always try to pick songs within my range, though, for the sake of other people.
There are very few foods which I discriminate against and I think watching a lot of hours of the Travel Channel is making me open to exploring more options for my personal cuisine and reconsider food that I used to avoid at all costs.
When it comes to films, I have a preference for any works by Alan Smithee ;-)
Most of the books I am reading nowadays are boring reference books for work, so I don't have a lot of time for pleasure reading.

I did not realise that the term "motherfuckers" refers to those who fuck their own mothers until recently. I really always thought that it referred to those who fuck mothers no matter who they may be.
I naively thought that by answering all the sillier and more superficial questions that there was really some sort of esoteric formula that was being used to formulate a match and they weren't just there for my amusement.
