As far as books go I'm a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings trilogy
and pretty much anything by Tolkien. I'm also a fan of the
Dragonlance series, and I like the Fountainhead by Ayn Rand.
Anything by Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchet is awesome. I also like
Don Quixote, The Inferno, and The Prince. I want to read more of
the classics, but as of yet I haven't. Currently I'm reading
"American Gods" but I'm not that far into it yet.
Movies - I love really terrible movies that are so bad they are
good. I'm also a huge fan of the classics like Citizen Cane, The
Godfather parts I and II (three is ok, but it isn't in the same
league as the first two), Seven Samurai, A Trip to the Moon, most
things by Charlie Chaplin, and the original Star Wars trilogy. I
also like Memento, Public Enemies, Ghostbusters, Lucky Number
Slevin, Black Swan, and a whole fuckton more.
Music - I mostly listen to rock, metal, techno, and classical.

rap or country. Here is a short, and ever growing list of some of
