Books (Fiction): Since my non-fiction reading can be dense, I tend to go with lighter fictional fare: Terry Pratchett (who in a better world would be considered a great writer instead of merely a successful one, also RIP sir), Neil Stephenson, Paolo Bacigalupi (I'll buy you a drink if you can tell me how to pronounce his name).
Poets: Yeats, Frost, Ginsberg
Comics: Transmetropolitan; Lone Wolf and Cub; Batman: The Killing Joke
Movies: Blade Runner; True Romance; The Big Lebowski; Army of Darkness; The Prestige (It has Batman, Wolverine, Gollum and David Fucking Bowie as Nikola Fucking Tesla - it's a nerd buffet).
I love everything from country to black metal, but if it's my dime in the jukebox you're getting Bill Withers, Sam Cook and Charles Wright and you'll like it.
Food: Southern. (I'm a Californian to the bone but my ears are from Tennessee and my stomach is from South Carolina).
Things that make me want to write about them
Things that leave me speechless
Things that move me (literally and figuratively)
Things to eat and drink
Things that involve being with my nearest and dearest

Whether or not I should go to Memphis Minnie's.
The Giants, the Niners, Everton.
