Books: Stephen King's pretty good. I think the books I've read most
recently were by David Sedaris, Oliver Sacks, and Christopher
Movies: Jurassic Park is my all time favorite. I also like most
Tarantino movies, The Shawshank Redemption, The Jerk, Star Wars
(especially Empire Strikes Back, but Return of the Jedi is a close
second), The Usual Supsects, The Thing, and Willy Wonka and the
Chocolate Factory (which is the Gene Wilder version, not that
Johnny Depp pile of garbage).
Shows: Chappelle's Show was awesome while it lasted, and Dave
Chappelle is also one of my favorite stand up comedians. I also
really like Seinfeld, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, Breaking Bad, Upright
Citizen's Brigade, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Peep Show,
and early seasons of The Office, Scrubs, and South Park.
I'm a big fan of comedy in general. If you want to talk about it or
the creation of it, whether it's stand-up, TV, movies, or whatever,
it might be fun.
Music: Queens of the Stone Age, The White Stripes, The Black Keys
(I think I have a thing for color-themed guitar-drum blues rock
duos from the Midwest), Wu-Tang Clan, The Legendary Roots Crew,
some Jay-Z, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and The Red Hot Chili
Food: Pretty much everything. Thai food might be the best, but a
burger and fries can't miss.
