Way too many of each to decribe here (I'm not sure my memory is
that good in any case) But ...
Authors: Steinbeck, Dickens, Michael Chabon, Bradbury, LeGuin,
Shakespeare. Titles: Blink, On the Road, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's
Nest, Angela's Ashes, Brave New World, Omnivore's Dilemma,
Hitchhiker's Guide, etc, etc
Music: I like it all. Admittedly favor "rootsy" folks like Van
Morrison, Delbert McClinton, Bonnie Raitt, Los Lobos, and James
Hunter, (though pop artists like Sting and Steve Winwood certainly
get my attention). Live, I listen to a lot of of jazz (though both
rock and acoustic music get frequent attention). Miles Davis, Getz
and Gilberto, Django, Weather Report, Turtle Island Quartet,
Brubeck with Desmond, Latin jazz. I will listen to most musical
genres and find something I like
Movies: You've got to be kidding ... The Long Hot Summer (Newman
and Woodword but especially Orson Welles), The Godfather, Mean
Streets, the first Star Wars was awfully cool, The Lives of Others,
Monsoon Wedding, Juno, Amelie, Pulp Fiction, Oh Brother Where Art
Thou, Slumdog. Pretty much any Marx Brothers (any "Night at" or
"Day at" -- Duck Soup), Holiday or Bringing Up Baby (Cary Grant and
Katherine Hepburn worked well together) The question may be posed
... what movies would you happily watch multiple times?
