Mostly classics, science fiction and fantasy. A few favorite authors are Gibson, Hobb, Asimov, Heinlein, Dumas and a bunch more. Currently reading Hyperion.
Movies and series:
Comedies, action, adventure and science-fiction, drama... you know, lets just say everything. To mention a few examples: Dark City, 28 Days Later, Cemetery Man, Dawn of the Dead, Lost in Translation, In Bruges, Pulp Fiction etc.
I tend to change taste quite quickly. Everything from Sopor Aeternus to Makeup and Vanity Set to Blackmore's Night to Nancy Sinatra. Make of it what you will.
