For books, Charles Bukowski's "Burning in Water, Drowning in Flames", and anything by Max Brooks.
For movies, "Amelie", "Idiocracy", "Run Lola Run". There are just too many to mention.
As for music, this isn't the eighth grade where you could pick a prospective friend by what bands they liked.
Shows, GOT. Sometimes Vikings and the daily show. Bill Maher too.
Food, anything slower then me that doesn't have cilantro on it.
