Also not too bad of a cook, but my repertoire is limited to vegetarian cuisine.

i dont want to talk about it ^^
Tim Burton movies (especially Corpse Bride)
X-Men and other marvel-comic-based movies
not too big of a fan of tarantino, but inglorious bastards is great.
hm.. right now nothing else comes to mind...
Dr. who, house, big bang theory, south park, Game of Thrones
Currently I am enamoured by Karnivool, sound awake is simply marvellous. I'm dying to see them this summer, maybe on south-side.
When I listen to music, it usually requires my full attention.
I do like Progressive-metal and -rock, jazz, baroque, roots-reggae, soul, ska, punk ... anything, but i have to listen repeatedly and carefully to it.
The music has to have some degree of complexity, in a broad sense, which could mean just the lyrics are complex, but usually i enjoy great sound of passionate instrumentalists.
Generally the Song ist good, the more often I can listen to it in a row, still discovering new nuances.
For example the complexity of a Bob Marley Song is a million times higher than most of what is being sold as reggae/dancehall today. Details and nuances are the important factor, as they have a lot more potential to increase complexity, there is no need for a change of meter or chord every other bar at all. I have hardly ever heard any band able to resemble the sound of Bob Marley and the wailers, it takes a lot of practize to do so. Any five year old child on the other hand can do, what I hear in a disco when they put on dancehall.
So I do not share the opinion, that music is just a sole matter of taste. If there is just a simple electronical beat it does not at all inspire me to dance. Most people that find house/techno etc is music suitable for dancing and merely listen to music in a social context in my experience are musically illiterate and I do not enjoy talking bout music with them a lot.
Theres few things that beat really good food shared with a few friends or a nice girl.
Heres some food i really like that i am likely to make on occasion:
kidney-bean-corn-onion based salads
bakes of all kind
plain pasta with tomato sauce (packet sauce = NO-NO)
I am a vegetarian rather for ethical/economical than health or taste related reason, so unfortunately I cannot judge non-vegetarian food.
