If Tove Jansson's Moomin tales have not made their way into your
life, rectify this omission immediately.
Other authors I found hugely influential:
Robert Jordan, George RR Martin, Robin Hobb, Iain M Banks, Frank
QI, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, @midnight, Doctor Who (1963-1989),
Game of Thrones, True Detective.
I am virtually musically illiterate about anything from this
century. Someone who knows their way around the various scenes
would be helpful in this regard. Stuff I do like: AC/DC, Led
Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, Fleetwood Mac, Johnny Cash, Heart, Muse,
Nightwish, Whitesnake, "Weird Al" Yankovic
