Books: Frank Herbert's DUNE is probably my favourite novel. Heart
of Darkness, the Name of the Rose, the Lord of the Rings and all HP
Lovecraft follow up close. In general I just love to read
everything that is good. Historical books and novels or also sci-fi
in general... Umberto Eco, Arturo Perez-Reverte, Terry Pratchett,
Neil Gaiman, George RR Martin, Patrick O'Brien, the whole
Moorcock's Elric saga. And something else.
Movies: STAR WARS, Blade Runner, Last of the Mohicans, Alien, Black
Hawk Down, Master and Commander and historical movies in general -
Every Monty Python movie/sketch, Western movies. Sci-Fi in general
and Horror B-movies (or even worst - Feast trilogy), Family
Music: Heavy Metal, Progressive, Folk, Classical, Electronic.
Original Soundtracks from movies or games.
Food: the good one.
