Easy Rider, The Graduate, Monty Python, The Godfather, and The Lord of the Rings are all great, in wildly various ways, but I don't go to the movies all that often.
I really only watch TV when my body is occupied but my brain isn't. Modern Family, Flight of the Conchords, Californication, Family Guy, Sealab 2021, Robot Chicken, and The Universe are all splendid ways to avoid thinking for half an hour.
I'm open-minded and casual about my music; I'll listen to anything except the lamest of pop. I probably listen to Leonard Cohen, Deadmau5, Elliott Smith, the Velvet Underground, Deep Dish, the Smiths, Cake, The Cure, Modest Mouse, and Royksopp more than most people, but I'm good with anything from Lupe Fiasco to The Decemberists depending on the mood.
I enjoy complex carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals, in that order.
