Graphic novels are important too, though I find a lot of them don't age well. Things like Sandman, Sin City, Watchmen, Hellboy, Preacher, Maus, Persepolis and V for Vendetta were all pretty important to me at some point in my life.
All my heroes are comedians. Bill Hicks, Richard Pryor, Mitch Hedberg, Steve Martin, Dave Chappelle.
Mad Max: Fury Road was amazing. I liked San Andreas but hated Jurassic World, except for any scene featuring my favorite character, the mosasaurus. Some of my favorite directors: Tarantino, Kubrick, Miyazaki, Kurasawa, Edgar Wright, Brad Bird, Wong Kar Wai, Michael Mann, Takashi Miike. I am unhealthily obsessed with cheesy martial arts films and anything involving at least one samurai.
I'm picky about TV drama, but I love animation. Samurai Jack and Adventure Time are important, especially since their creators went to my alma mater. Rick & Morty and Metalocalypse are also great. I liked seasons 1, 2, and 5 of Breaking Bad, and I'm into Game of Thrones, though their deviations from A Song of Ice and Fire are getting pretty damn sloppy.
I can't go into music here, besides to say the best album to come out in the last year was To Pimp A Butterfly. My musical heroes are Squarepusher, J. S. Bach, and Lead Belly. I grew up loving Radiohead and still do, and still have a soft spot for late-nineties and early-aughts electronic music like Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, Autechre, DJ Shadow, RJD2 and Plaid. Someone once said my band sounds like the love child of Stevie Wonder and Tom Waits, which I think is the greatest compliment ever.
When it comes to classical music, I compose post-minimalist or weirdly structured electroacoustic stuff. I work with choreographers a lot, which I strongly prefer to composing for film, although I've done that too. I like when I get to do stuff like this (link). I tend to shy away from truly atonal music and stick to folks like Reich. I also beat boxed and played banjo during my snooty MFA grad recital, so there.
I play my share of video games, though lately I've been going through a lot of old NES and SNES JRPGs on my Android. I get really unhealthily into games with good puzzles, like Portal or Myst. Journey was amazing too, and Bastion. I can't imagine ever getting bored of GTA V. I've played Final Fantasy 1-7 and 10. I dig longer games like Skyrim, Bioshock and Dark Souls, but have a problem finding the time to finish them.
When it comes to food, I am like the Nothing in the Neverending Story, except with slightly more chewing.
Honorable mentions go out to Dan Savage, Stoya, Charlie LeDuff and whoever invented Go.
