Books: I'm slowly adopting the Kindle approach. It's been
liberating but I miss the feel and smell of a good paperback.
Movies: Big Lebowski, Dazed & Confused, Grumpy Old Men and
Grumpier Old Men, Fargo, Juno, Office Space, Slapshot, Super
Troopers, Toy Story series, Wizard of Oz. No lies, they are all in
my movie collection.
Shows: My heart broke when House finished its last season. It was
almost as bad as the Gilmore Girls heartbreak.
The ones I've been lucky enough to see in person (to name a few):
4onthefloor (x^4), AC/DC, Aerosmith (3x), B.B. King, Beyonce (x2),
Black Keys, Bruno Mars, Eric Clapton, Ellie Goulding (x2), Foster
the People, Flogging Molly, fun, G. Love (3x), Jack Johnson, Jay-Z,
Lumineers, Ke$ha, Killers, Mumford & Sons, O.A.R., Neil Young,
Pink Floyd (what's left of 'em), Prince, Ryan Bingham, Sam Smith,
Vampire Weekend, Weezer (4x) - as you can see, tastefully all over
the billboard charts.
Food: The spicier the better - Thai is my favorite. I've rooster
sauce in my desk at work.
