The Turk - about the chess-playing automaton
The Poisonwood Bible - the only book that has ever made me cry
Maus - the first graphic novel I ever read, and one that I now help to teach to a class at my school
The Pianist - harrowing, haunting, and the subject of many a terrifying dream
Anything by Stephen Pinker, Oliver Sacks or VS Ramachandran - I love the brain, I love language, and I especially love anything that examines the link between the two
The Otherland quadrilogy - turning that monster into a TV series has been a pipe dream since I was twelve
Severed - dark, macabre, frightening, and beautifully illustrated, it's one of my favourite graphic novels
Almost any popular science book: favourite authors include Jared Diamond, Dava Sobell, Simon Singh and Simon Winchester
Oh, what the hell. Pick a book. Any book. Except "Twilight". Chances are I've read it and have an opinion. If I try to list all my favourites, we'll be here until the apocalypse.
No easy questions here, huh?
The Lord of the Rings trilogy - it's what got me into film in the first place
Pan's Labyrinth - beautiful, terrifying, haunting and so visually complex it takes my breath away. The onion of films: I try peeling away the layers, but I just end up crying.
The Silence of the Lambs - I cannot get enough of the art direction in that film
How to Train Your Dragon - that film just makes me happy, both as an animation nerd and as a human being
The Prestige/The Illusionist - I prefer The Prestige, but I love almost any film about magic
Serenity - thank you, Joss Whedon. Also: fuck you, Joss Whedon
The Avengers - see above
Coraline - stop-motion at its absolute finest
Wes Craven's New Nightmare - much as I love the original, there's something about the campy meta-textualism that makes New Nightmare my favourite
Alien - nothing in the same universe will ever top the original
As with the books, I'm going to stop before we all die of old age.
If we're talking TV, then Frasier, Firefly, Hustle, Black Books, Doctor Who, Dexter, How I Met Your Mother, Penn and Teller's Fool Us, Babylon 5, Alias, Carnivale, Game of Thrones; the list goes on...
If we're talking stage, then Wicked, Avenue Q, War Horse, The Normal Heart, Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet, Les Miserables, Cirque du Soleil's Allegria, the RSC's adaptation of His Dark Materials, Notre Dame de Paris, Don Giovanni (both live and with marionettes), and the rest of another extremely long list.
Ask me about classical music. I dare you. Stephen Kovacevich playing Brahms late piano music, Rachmaninov playing his own third piano concerto, Andras Schiff playing solo Bach, the Beaux Arts Trio playing Beethoven, Sandrine Piau singing Haydn, Sir Thomas Allen as Don Giovanni, Dmitri Alexeev playing the Schostakovich second piano concerto, David Oistrakh playing the Khachaturian violin concerto...
I also like Muse, Nina Simone, and Simon and Garfunkel.
Before I started keeping kosher, I would gladly knock down my own grandmother to get to a freshly barbecued kangaroo steak.

*Edited to add: ...by all means drop me a line that in some way intimates that you actually fit the aforementioned criteria. The next person who sends me a "hey, how was ur weekend" (or similar) will be hunted down, chopped into small pieces, and fed to the seagulls at Fisherman's Wharf.
