In all media my favorite subject is: ZOMBIES!
Besides that I like reading sci-fi/fantasy, books about museum
studies, cabinet of curiosities, art history, history and others.
Some favorite authors are Neil Gaiman, Terry Prachett, Asimov,
Vonnegut, Bradbury and the goes on.

Jane Austen. So pretty much a lot of Kira Knightly. Others are The
Fall, Tarantino, There Will Be Blood, The Cell, A Single Man, David
Lynch, Brazil, House of Flying Daggers (and others like it),
Audition, I'm a Cyborg But That's OK, etc.
I don't have a TV, nor have I watched it in years (who does
anymore?), but some shows I like are, first and foremost: STAR
TREK! Afterward follows, Battlestar Galactica, Metalocalypse,
Firefly, American Horror Story, Mad Men, etc.
I love all types of music! I usually go into genre spurts, where
I'd listen to nothing but Dubstep, Old time, Klezmer, Industrial,
Metal, etc. for weeks on end. Some bands I like are Godspeed You
Black Emperor, Midnight Laserbeam, the Industrial genre in general,
Dresden Dolls, Beirut, Gillian Welch, Fishtank Ensemble, Flogging
Molly, Beats Antique, Bassnectar, I love the CRAP out of Tom Waits,
I love spicy food! I'm a horrible cook, but I'll try anything.
