Give me anything in the Tolkien/Vonnegut spectrum and you can consider it read. I like to throw in a nonfiction every once in a while too, just to mix it up.
Music - anything from the Beatles and Rolling Stones to Beck and Spoon. Vampire Weekend, Radiohead, My Morning Jacket, Belle and Sebastian, TV on the Radio, Modest Mouse, etc, etc.
I listen to podcasts everyday e.g. Radiolab, This American Life, All Songs Considered. Anything NPR or Slate makes.
I don't watch much tv, but like(d) Seinfeld, Arrested Development, SNL, the Daily Show, Bobs Burgers.
