Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, The Black Keys, John Coltrane,
Miles Davis, Happy Apple, etc. I'm incredibly eclectic. You should
see my Spotify account.
I watch a wide variety of movies. Anything from the 30's to today.
I guess I'm a film nerd, though I tend to stay away from most
horror films, especially if they're gore-heavy. Doesn't do anything
for me. If it's a Marvel movie, I probably love it. Favorites
include: On the Waterfront, The Best Years of Our Lives, The Good
The Bad & The Ugly trilogy, North by Northwest, Star Wars, TDK
trilogy, The Avengers, etc. etc. etc. We could be here all
Silicon Valley, Game of Thrones and Top Gear (UK) are the only
shows I can think of that I make it a point to watch when they
premier. Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo and Fringe are three of the
greatest shows ever made. I also love David Tennant's Doctor.

Comedians: John Mulaney, Kyle Kinane, Hannibal Buress.
