Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light, and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don't bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: "It's not where you take things from - it's where you take them to."

Movies and Televison:
I'm kind of a movie whore in that I can enjoy pretty much any movie as long as it's not action for the sake of action, or gore for the sake of gore, or gaudily "artistic" just for the sake of shock value. I'm much more selective with TV shows because they require more investment. I particularly like film and television with a certain spirit behind it lent by an innovative mind, eye, or hand - Miyazaki films, much of Tim Burton's older work, Ken Burns documentaries. Any film by Adrian Lyne, select ones by Wes Anderson. Joss Whedon is my personal savior (though admittedly? Dr. Horrible and Cabin in the Woods both left something to be desired). I can take or leave Tarantino, if I'm being perfectly honest. I prefer actors who visibly enjoy their work and invest in their characters (Kevin Spacey, Ryan Gosling, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Alexis Denisof, Lauren Graham). I also enjoy thought-provoking subject matter, dark humor, heavy-handed foreshadowing and symbolism, and pop culture references. Favorites include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Gilmore Girls, Cold Case, Parks and Recreation, Nip/Tuck, American Horror Story, guilty-pleasure-show Pretty Little Liars. I like Jeopardy. I'm not big on Adult Swim. I hate Scarlett Johannson.
Because you're probably only really interested in the music that you like too. If you look through a section and see some artists you love and some you've never heard of, you may be pleasantly surprised by checking out the unfamiliar ones.

Bloody meat, stinky cheese, spicy nuts, burritos, organic strawberries, berries, citrus, fancy salads, sushi, salmon, mushrooms, honeycomb, things that are chewy, flakey, melty, crumbly, crunchy, creamy, sweet and sour. Probably not all at once. Whiskey and wine. Licorice tea. Lots of water. Will try anything once.
I am blessed with panic attacks and fairly serious anxiety. I'm pretty introverted, stubborn, and self-involved. I tell really drawn out stories, have an opinion about everything, experience some difficulty in decision-making, laugh at my own jokes, talk about tumblr a lot, and sometimes stutter when excited. I swear. Like, a lot. I waver between staunch autonomy and vaguely insecure clinginess, though neither in unsettling excess. I have a penchant for lateness, though I am getting better about it now. I will likely force you to look at this thing I found on the internet, refer to dissident politics and "impolite" or uncomfortable conversation topics, and act shy and withdrawn and possibly totally uninterested if I'm attracted to you. I have a love/hate relationship with labels and how I apply them to myself. Sometimes I find my own laugh annoying. I will judge you based on your spelling and grammar, sorry in advance. Kind of. I write more formally than I speak, and find this a useful way to demonstrate thoughtful understanding to internet strangers.
On the bright side, I am the essence of "The Maid of Honor": doting, supportive, and grateful in a relationship, and of the Aquarian stereotype: curious, communicative, unconventional, and progressive. Despite my self-consciousness, I am a novice pragmatist, and an eternal realist with an idealist's fervor. I must respect you to love you, and though I relish companionship, I also require a certain level of independence in most things, especially romantic relationships. I believe in openness between lovers, with few exceptions.

or you have realistic expectations of your lovers, like I do.
