I'll start with music, cause it's my favorite! I listen to all
sorts of genres but my favorite is bluesy rock/folk and 60s and 70s
rock, especially anything psychedelic. But here's a list of a whole
bunch of artist I like, which is no where near comprehensive:
Queen, The Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, The Who, Arcade Fire, Civil
Wars, Hot Bodies in Motion(my favorite local band, if you haven't
heard them stop reading and YouTube that shit), The Silent Comedy,
Iron and Wine, Dr Dog, and many many more.
Movies I'm all over the board, here are a few:
Inglorious Bastards, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars (the originals,
we're going to pretend the new ones didn't happen), Zombie Land,
Kick Ass, Pulp Fiction and countless others.
For shows I like:
Game of Thrones(Best show ever!), The Wire, Arrested Development,
Firefly, How I Met Your Mother, and more.
Books: Lord of the Rings, The Great Gatsby, the Pilgrims Regress,
almost anything by Poe, and more
