Shows: In recent memory I was most impressed with Deadwood. Enjoyed most of Six Feet Under, Carnivale, Fringe (mad science!), and Dead Like Me. I am sure I am forgetting some at the moment.
Animated: Futurama, The Simpsons, Archer, Invader Zim, The Boondocks...etc.
Music: Largely Classical/Opera and Electronica (Trance, Hardstyle, Psy, Hardcore, Ambient), with liberal sprinkles of rock and rap of different varieties. Aesop Rock deserves a mention here, but he is more poet than rapper.
Food:Trend towards asian/bold flavors, can cook continental European, Asian (Indonesian and Pan-Asian Americana), American, and French...working on the rest. Favorite dish? Anything cooked with kaffir lime and chili
