Music: Everything (I for one, actually mean it, no exceptions.) I'm a classic rock junkie by product of two classic rock junkie parents but appreciate a good song whether there's a country twang to it or hip hop.
Movies: The Big Lebowski ("obviously you're not a golfer"), City of God (subtitled movies make me feel smarter), the Back to the Future trilogy (I'm still trying to find a flaw in the story continuity but can't, it might just be perfect).
TV: Homeland, How I Met Your Mother, The Newsroom, Curb Your Enthusiasm, saturday night hockey games.
Books: Owner's manuals for kitchen appliances and children's pop-up books.
