Books: The End of Poverty by Jeffrey Sachs. There are others, but
that's the main one.
Podcasts! Comedy Bang-Bang!, the Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project,
How Did This Get Made? Doug Loves Movies, Analyze Phish (sadly, not
a ton of episodes), U Talkin' U2 2 Me, etc, etc.
Movies: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Rocky IV. Scarface.
("If I could, I'd just sit at home all day, watch Scarface 50
times, and eat turkey sandwiches. Then I'd dress up like a clown,
and surprise kids at schools!...") Casino. The Godfather Trilogy -
even the third one, I guess. Lord of the Rings, obviously.
Shows: ARCHER IS THE FUNNIEST SHOW ON TV. Game of Thrones! Twin
Peaks. True Detective, which was really just phenomenal. The
Walking Dead, is a guilty pleasure (If you have some time on your
hands, ask me about the problems with that show.) Chappelle's Show.
Your Daily Show/Colbert combo, of course (kind of sad Colbert is
going to take over Letterman's spot.) The Wire. I really miss LOST,
Music: I hate when someone writes "everything!!!", so I'll go with
"most." But otherwise, I like Arcade Fire, the Decemberists, the
Gaslight Anthem, CHVRCHES, and Bon Iver. I also like Three 6 Mafia,
Jedi Mind Tricks, and RiFF RAFF. My taste in music can occasionally
get really, really bad.
Food: Anything fresh. Avocados. Anything previously breathing.
