OK, this is the long section:
For books, I generally like fantasy or humour. The Wheel of Time is
my favourite series, but anything by Brandon Sanderson is also
good, and Terry Pratchet is great
As for movies, I prefer dramas, but comedies are good too.
Something that will tell an interesting story, but with a focus on
the characters. That being said, as long as the movie is
interesting and tells its message effectively, I don't care what I
watch (chickflicks included). As for actual movies I like...I'll
have to get back to that cause there are too many.
Shows, ok here we go:
Battlestar Galactica (best show ever made. don't argue)
Arrested Development (Ok, maybe this one's the best show ever made.
damn its so hard to choose)
Avatar: the Last Airbender (and Legend of Korra's pretty good
I like most music, but I prefer alternative and indie. Yeah Yeah
Yeahs, Arctic Monkeys, Alexisonfire, Rolo Tomassi, Silversun
Pickups, Protest the Hero, Mother Mother, Metric, Florence and the
Machine, The XX, City and Colour, Titus Andronicus and Bear
McCreary (because the BSG soundtrack is awesome)
I love all kinds of food, but Indian is my favourite.
I read a lot of webcomics:
Cyanide and Happiness (from time to time)
Hark a Vagrant!
