A lot here, so just a little something for each...
Books: Mostly non-fiction, but have been trying to get into more
fiction and classic lit the last couple of years (I neglected them
throughout school). I love everything really by John Steinbeck and
Kurt Vonnegut, but I'm open to most anything.
Movies: Not a huge movie buff, but comedies mostly, e.g. The Big
Lebowski, Dumb and Dumber, Anchorman. I'm a sucker for that kind of
stuff. That's not to say I don't like more serious stuff, but I
have to be in the right mood for it.
TV Shows: Again, mostly comedy here. Among my favorites are
Breaking Bad, Seinfeld, Eastbound and Down, Trailer Pak Boys, The
Simpsons, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The League,
Workaholics, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Arrested Development, Louie,
Wilfred, The Walking Dead. I loved Lost at the time it was on, but
I felt like the ending really lowered my opinion of it.
Music: A little of everthing genre-wise. Let's see...some off the
top of my head: A Tribe Called Quest, The Beatles, Isaac Hayes,
Curtis Mayfield, Funkadelic, Parliament, The Stooges, Black
Sabbath, Nirvana, Gang Starr, Wu-Tang Clan, Cream, Velvet
Underground, Michael Jackson, Outkast, The Rolling Stones, Prince,
Led Zeppelin, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, Aesop Rock,
Soundgarden, Sly & The Family Stone Guns 'N Roses, Alice in
Chains, Joni Mitchell, James Brown, etc. (tons more). I realize I
don't listen to enough music past 2000 or so, but I've spent so
much time looking back to discover older stuff.
Food: Sushi!, Indian, Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Italian, etc. Almost
anything. It would be much easier to mention foods I don't like
since the list would be rather small.
