I never used to watch TV, but, thanks to friends that turn me on to
good stuff, I enjoy the following: The Daily Show, Colbert Report,
Al Jazeera English, Arrested Development, Trailer Park Boys, The
Wire, Louie. (Although I do have some perennial favorites: Twin
Peaks, Monty Python, Faulty Towers).

background music to my daily activities (perennial faves: Tom
Waits, Miles Davis, Coltrane, Mingus, Bartok, Steve Reich, Sonic
Youth, Wu Tang, Ornette, Black Sabbath).
Authors: Beckett, Deleuze, Foucault, Proust, Nabokov, Blanchot,

David Lynch, Resnais, Godard, Woody Allen, Jarmusch, Buñuel, Marcel
Carné, Orson Welles, Jean Renoir, Agnes Varda.
As for food: I pretty much love it all and pride myself on at least
trying everything (except for Sannakji).
Radio: I used to like listening to NPR on the rare occasions I
drove my car, but now I just listen to GZA's LIQUID SWORDS.
Visual stuff: Bellmer, Bacon, Cezanne, Delacroix, Ernst, Kandinsky,
Magritte, Dali (even though he's a fascist-lover).
