I really enjoyed The Avengers and The Cabin in the Woods (why is Hollywood so late to discover Whedon's genius?). Fight Club, Castaway. Eternal Sunshine is way up there. Bridesmaids (and Kristin Wiig generally).
I listen to WNCW if I'm listening to live radio and enjoy the stuff they play, even if I don't particularly like it. I'm sort of an NPR junkie, but through podcasts: Diane Rehm, Planet Money, On the Media, Live Concerts.
The way music distribution works these days, I don't have a "favorite" artist (in the way when you couldn't find a station with decent stuff you had to assemble your own rotation). I'm a big fan of tUnE-yArDs, Andrew Bird, The Shins. Bon Iver (viz. Stacks). The Black Keys. Buke and Gass and Neko Case annoy me but I seem to listen to them anyway. Soukous and bluegrass generally.
Black beans and rice is my comfort food, which is weird since I come from a roast and potatoes family.
