Movies: I like trashy, dumb movies that may or may not contain huge amounts of violence and gore. Examples would be The Room, Troll 2, Attack Girl Swim Team vs. The Undead, Calamari Wrestler, Machine Girl. Everybody should really watch the movie The Room. It'll change your life.
Books: Mostly Sci-Fi books by authors like Stanislaw Lem, Isaac Asimov, Arthur C Clarke or Philip K Dick. Also I read a lot of comics of different kinds. Lately I've been absorbed by Terry Moores "Strangers in Paradise"
